POST GRADUATE INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL EDUCATION AND RESEARCH
The Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) was founded in 1962 by Sardar Partap Singh Kairon, former Chief Minister of Punjab. It was created to provide rigorous and quality medical education to students, conduct research activities to benefit the community, as well as provide high standards of medical treatment to patients.
