Kathmandu Medical College (KMC) has been in operation for more than ten years, Kathmandu Medical College Pvt. Ltd., comprising of leading doctors, businessmen and charity organizations took over the management of KMC on 1st May 2000. The alarming cost of medical education abroad and the fact that is out of reach of the majority of the population gave the impetus to initiate this venture and the intention is to provide service which is easily accessible, reasonably cheap and of the highest standards. The fact that an increased number of sick and needy are seeking at KMC Teaching Hospital is proof of this.
