Christian Medical College – CMC

by | Nov 15, 2017 | Campaigns, Current Campaigns

CMC Vellore was founded by an American, Dr. Ida S. Scudder. Born in South India in 1870, she spent most of her childhood in the US and was educated there. In 1899 was one of the first woman graduates of Cornell Medical as a doctor, she returned to Vellore to provide medical care for the women and children

Gradually her reputation grew and with it the demand for her services.

In 1902 she opened the 40-bedded Mary Taber Schell Memorial Hospital, built using funds donated in the USA. In 1924 a new 267-bedded hospital was opened in the centre of Vellore, which has continued to expand there ever since. Learn More
