There was a call after the Second World War to establish a college in India which would cater to the enormous medical needs of the Indian armed forces. Thus, in 1948 this college was established in Pune. The purpose is to train medical, paramedical and nursing staff for employment in the Indian armed forces. Another purpose of the Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) in Pune is to encourage more of the younger medical graduates to consider employment in the military services. Career prospects in the defence services are guaranteed for students who study here. A graduate wing was added in the year 1962. At present, the Armed Forces Medical College is affiliated to the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences.
There are multiple departments within the AFMC, such as the College of Nursing and the Department of Pharmacy. Super- Specialty Departments exist such as those for – CT Surgery, Cardiology, Neuro Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Respiratory Medicine, Radiotherapy and Medical Education. The maximum number of departments lie under the postgraduate programmes. Examples include- Biochemistry, Anatomy, Community Medicine, Forensic Medicine, Pathology, Psychiatry, Microbiology, Physiology, Pharmacology, Surgery, Microbiology, Dermatology, Paediatrics, Ophthalmology, Sports Medicine, Internal Medicine, Biochemistry and a few others.
All these departments cater to multiple courses. At the graduate level, there is the MBBS programme. Multiple PG Diploma courses also exist in various areas. There are several paramedical courses also on offer, which operate on full bachelor’s degree mode. Post the completion of these specializations, the graduates may take up various positions such as – Radiographic Technician, Radiotherapy Technician, Cardio Technician, Neuro Technician, Laboratory Technician, Dental Hygenist, X-Ray Assistant, Health Assistant, Pharmacologist, Endoscopy Technician, Operation Theatre Technician, Optometry Technician, Blood Infusion Technician and Perfusionist among others. Specialized senior level top-up courses can also be applied for in areas such as Virology, MRI, Electron Microscopy and Prosthodontics.
Due to the association with the armed forces, the campus was designed in such as way as to have ample open spaces. This encourages outdoor sports and exercise. There are sports facilities for football, cricket, lawn- tennis, squash, swimming and basketball. The infra also double up as a training centre for the armed forces personnel as well as medical cadets. There is also enough scope for extra- curricula activities. This is expressed through several clubs and societies here. Example include Computer Club, Hobbies Club, Debating Club, Student Scientific Society, Musimatics and Adventure Club.

At the AFMC, there is also a lot of focus paid on research and development. There is a separate medical research committee working on several research areas. To this end, the works of the research get published on the AFMC’s own medical journal which is published inhouse. It is known as the Medical Journal of the Armed Forces of India (MJAFI). The MJAFI is one of India’s oldest medical journals. Its formation predates the college itself, having been formed in 1945. The journal’s publishers are deemed as experts on scientific writing and reviewing. The MJAFI has been published in different locations such as in Delhi, Pune, Mumbai and Lucknow.
