Ujjain has been a seat of learning since time immemorial. Its history dates back to the era of Lord Krishna, who underwent his education at Sant Sandipani’s Ashram situated on the banks of river Kshipra. Inspired by its rich educational heritage, a dedicated team of trustees envisioned the potential to provide medical education and services, and thus the first-ever private medical college of the state of Madhya Pradesh; the Ruxmaniben Deepchand Gardi Medical College (RDGMC) came into existence in the year 2001 under the banner of Ujjain Charitable Trust and Research Centre. RDGMC is recognized by the Medical Council of India and Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India and is affiliated to Madhya Pradesh Medical Science University (MPMSU), Jabalpur. RDGMC provides undergraduate and postgraduate medical education in different specialties since 2009. There are 110 MCI recognized PG seats on the date.
