The activities of Medical Faculty Training started with the efforts way back in 1988 with the Medical Teachers' Training Program with the help of JIPMER and Manipal faculty.
Subsequently, there were many Health Educators' Training programs.
The official Medical Education Unit started in 1997 with the help and contributions from great teachers like Dr S Vaidyanathan and Dr MadanMohan, who had the blessings of Dr Ekbal, then Planning Board Member. Subsequently this unit was given momentum by Dr. P. Chandramohan, Dr. KA Kumar, Dr Sudhayakumar and Dr A. Meharunnisa (Principals).
Dr R DayanandaBabu and Dr Usha Poothiode and Dr Kala Kesavan served as Prof. i/c. Dr .Sarah Varghese (Pathology, Tpm) was a driving force for all medical education activities in the whole period.
