I am glad to share that the VELS GROUP has reached yet another milestone in its journey of over thirty years, by establishing its first medical institution in Chennai (and second medical institution in India). We are commencing our journey in health education with a mission to develop quality healthcare professionals. We commit ourselves to the welfare of humankind, as we strive to provide one of the best healthcare services to the rural masses.

Realizing this need, Vels Medical College & Hospital (VMCH), under Vels Institute of Science, Technology & Advanced Studies (VISTAS) A Deemed to be University was established in the year 2018 at Periyapalayam Road, Manjankaranai Village, Uthukottai Taluk, Tiruvallur District. With the approval for the medical institution from the academic year 2021-22, our vision to provide well-qualified medical professionals to meet needs of the rural population has finally received the much- needed fillip.

Indian healthcare professionals have the advantage of working in a very biologically active region that expenses them to treatment regimens of various kinds of conditions. The quality and amount of experience is arguably unmatched in most other countries. Despite limited access to high end diagnostic tools in rural areas, healthcare professions rely on extensive experience in rural areas. However non-availability of diagnostic and increasing reluctance of qualified and experienced healthcare professionals to practice in rural, under-equipped and financially less lucrative rural areas are becoming a big challenge.

With the support of the various stakeholders, we hope to realize our dream of making this institution a benchmark for quality healthcare and healthcare professionals in the country. I hope the aspiring students, will make the best choice by selecting this institution for the undergraduate (MBBS) Medical Programme. I extend a very warm invitation to join our most distinguished Medical Fraternity here.
