History :

KIMSDU, a place, where a thought of serving the society sowed in 1982, has grown in a sprawling campus spanning 53 acres of tranquility. Equipped with the best that technology has to offer, KIMSDU strongly believes in the thought that lead to its inception, namely “social responsibility”

Our founder Shri. Jaywantraoji Bhosale’s foray into education started way back in 1964 with the establishment of Society for Promotion of Education in Farmers. In 1984 where medical education was the forte of government run institutions, Shri Jaywantraoji Bhosale, with his continuous efforts persuaded the then Government of Maharashtra for private participation in the field of medical education and laid the foundation for what today is KIMSDU.

Acquiring the University status in 2005, KIMSDU has spread its wings to explore the diverse fields in medicine through its constituent colleges which include Medical, Dental, Physiotherapy, Nursing and Biotechnology.

The staff at each college comes with a wealth of knowledge, experience and most prominently the desire to inculcate values in each student. KIMSDU is not only a focal point for education but also a hub for research activities. Research is an integral part of our education system, and that’s what we indoctrinate in our students.

If you ask us, what sets KIMSDU apart? Our humble answer would be continual work towards creation of curriculum that will help our students have better perspective on the novel concepts and trends in medicine and to ensure that every student looks at research as a part of his/her DNA and not just a part of the syllabus.
