Chengalpattu Medical College dates back to days before 1965 when this was a district headquarters hospital with its building in the town. In 1965, the Government of Tamil Nadu upgraded this District Headquarters hospital to function as a teaching institution with 250 beds for clinical training. To begin with, this institution had an annual admission of 50 students, which the institution maintained till 2012. 100 students have been admitted from the academic year 2012-13 onwards. This 50-year-old institution was the 6th of its kind to be started in Tamil Nadu. The college initially trained D.M. & S. students, who had passed out of Kilpauk Medical College, for the Condensed MBBS Course. Girls students were first admitted in the year 1970 and the first batch of M.B.B.S. graduates of the college left in 1972. This college is affiliated to the Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R.
