College Detail

AFCM Overview:

The history of an institution portends the future & directs its destiny. The Armed Forces Medical College was formed at Pune on 01 May 1948 by the amalgamation of Army Medical Training Centre, the Army School of Hygiene, the Central Military Pathology Laboratory, the School of Blood Transfusion and Army School of Radiology. The college was initially housed in Eve’s Estate and later shifted to Connaught Barracks, the present location.

“Within a lotus wreath, surmounted by the Ashokan lions, the rod of Aesculapaeus the serpent intertwined”
The snake has been symbolically associated with the medical profession, since the dawn of civilization. Its origin can be traced in the mythology of the Greek who regarded it as a symbol of wisdom, virility and eternity. The snake was carried by Apollo and Mercury around a rod. In the form depicted in the crest, intertwined around a staff, it was carried by Aesculapaeus, the greek god of health and healing.

The AFMC campus is bounded by Sholapur Road on the North, Prince of Wales Drive to the East, Wanowrie Road to the South and Ferguson Road to the West. This 160-acre campus contains the college buildings, which are a harmonious mixture of the old and new.
