Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College Bhagalpur, Bihar , The institute will strive to be among the top ten medical colleges in India in the spheres of medical education, research and health care services. 1400 bed Dr. Prabhakar Kore Charitable Hospital,1000 bed Dr. Prabhakar Kore Hospital and Medical Research Centre, three Primary Health Centers and urban Health centers will be the epicenters of under graduate, post graduate and post doctoral training. The extreme shortage of medical facilities in the region, prompted the KLE Society to establish the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College(JNMC) at Belgaum in 1963. The JNMC today stands testimony to the high professional standards of the KLE Society. Under the able guidance and mature insight of the Founder Dean, Late Dr. B.S.Jirge, the foundation of the erstwhile academic excellence was laid. Eminent medical educationists, lateDr. B.M. Desai and Dr. M.BasavarajUrs headed the institution as principals during the first decade. Dr. H.B.Rajshekhar assumed the office of the principal in 1985.
