The present KARNATAKA INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL SCIENCES, HUBLI,( K.I.M.S. HUBLI.) was earlier known as the KARNATAKA MEDICAL COLLEGE, HUBLI. It was established in AUGUST 1957.For initial few years, the college was functioning from a building which is now known as J.G.Commerce College. Later, it was shifted to the present beautiful campus comprising of 100 acres of land, situated on Pune Bangalore National Highway, Vidyanagar, Hubli.
Since its inception, the Institution has carried a brilliant history of having a host of eminent teachers as its faculty, numerous alumni who have glorified the name of this Institute, not only in our country but across the globe. It has been playing, and continues to play a major role in serving the society at large, not only in terms of providing tertiary health care services to the needy, but also by developing resources in terms of health care providers and researchers.
The decade between 1980 to 1990 changed its face of being a non descript hospital in terms of treating cancer patients to a well known major and a model comprehensive regional center for cancer treatment & research. It was therefore capable of offering contemprory sophisticated diagnostic & therapeutic services to ever increasing numbers of cancer patients, not only from Karnataka state, but also from neighboring states like Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Maharashtra.
Unfortunately, over a period of time, due to many reasons, there was a progressive decline in terms of staff strength, facilities,and subsequently the services that was provided by the Institution.For almost seventeen years there were no new recruitments.
The Institute was almost on the verge of getting de recognized by the Medical Council of India.The Government of Karnataka immediately constituted a Governing Council and in JUNE 1997, the then KARNATAKA MEDICAL COLLEGE was accorded the Autonomous status, and so was born, the present KARNATAKA INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL SCIENCES, HUBLI.This was done with an aim to achieve the objectives of providing comprehensive Under Graduate & Post Graduate, medical & paramedical education in various subjects & developing the facilities for research, training, screening, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, palliative & preventive care for the society at large.Since then the Institute has shown tremendous progress towards achieving this goal. It has now got a sufficient well trained staff strength.
There has been steady progress in the facilities & the healthcare services that are now available at our Institute. We are proud to say that we are now also able to provide some of the major superspeciality services like Cardiology, Nephrology, Endocrinology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Urology, Plastic surgery, Pediatric surgery at our Institute. The A.R.T.Center at K.I.M.S. Hubli has been recognized & is being developed as the NODAL CENTER for the entire North Karnataka as well as surrounding region. The Government of Karnataka has also decided to provide CARDIAC CATH. LAB. to our Institute and also to develop & improve the Institute as REGIONAL CARDIOLOGY CENTER.

Education and other Programs
150 students are admitted each year to the MBBS course of KIMS Affiliated RGUHS. Our MBBS students are a carefully selected group of remarkably able and intelligent students committed to a high sustained hard work is the norm. What they need is only a little guidance along the path to knowledge. All efforts are made to keep their initiative and curiosity alive by making them active participants in the teaching-learing process. They also have an opportunity to stretch their minds with research during their vacations.
The faculty is willing and eager to provide vent to the wealth of ideas and energy available with this endless stream of extremely curious and committed young people. However, since they skills for the being are trained for practising medicine, we ensure that they do acquire the purpose.Further, the science and craft of medicine should be accompained by a humane approach to illness.
To inculcate the necessary empathy in our students,our curriculum extends beyond medicine, and encroaches on science and phychology.In short, undergraduate medical education is a blend of several streams of competing, and sometimes conflicting, endeavours. We try and make the blend as harmonious as We wish to produce competent and caring doctors while at the same time stimulating the creative abilities of our students It is not surprising that KIMS is Recognized by Medical Council of India 2009 onwards

MD & MS
All postgraduate students in KIMS are potential teachers and research workers. Hence during their stay at the Institute, they not only acquire competence in a branch of medicine or surgery,but they also savour the romance of teching and research. The small pieces of research which postgaduate students complete are treated as guided introduction to the painfully slow and tedious process of discovery. KIMS is also one of the pioneers in initiating an in-service training programme for postgraduate students. Residents, while providing patient care, also get formal training and education towards their degrees.
