It holds the distinction of being the second oldest medical college in the state, after the one located in Thiruvananthapuram. GMC Kozhikode is affiliated to the University of Calicut, Kozhikode. The institute broadened its perspective by introducing Dental courses, in 1984. After its modest commencement, the institution has maintained its growth gradually for more than 40 years.
Government Medical College Kozhikode has increased its intake of students, from 50 to 200, after its inception. The consolidation of undergraduate medical education was achieved in the 1960s. The last 40 years have witnessed the expansion of the college. Calicut Medical College started post graduate programs and later on, went on to commence super specialty courses in various branches of medicine, thereby widening its academic horizon. During the last decade, almost all modern specialty services in medical care have been developed by the college.
