About PMCAA

Patiala Medical College Alumni Association was established almost 40 years ago by some dedicated old graduates of Patiala Medical College living in the United States. The association has grown tremendously since. We have been holding our annual scientific meetings with great emphasis on social, cultural and educational aspect. Every year it is with a great pleasure, members get together like a large family. They share their old memories and create new ones.
Mission Statement
The mission of our organization is to serve as a forum to facilitate and enable Indian American physicians graduating from Patiala Medical College to excel in patient care, teaching and research, and to pursue their aspirations in professional and community affairs.

Message from Executive Secretary

Government Medical College Patiala made us all what we are today. Its alumni are now all over the world including United States. We have been providing many years of service and commitment to our community in United States while keeping close ties with our motherland, the city of Patiala where we spent the most precious years of our life and Patiala Medical College that built foundation of our lives forever. GOMCO, our alma mater has taught us always to help others and take care of the sick and the needy, and to be a good doctor. It has taught us to be a better person overall.

We have all visited our institute on numerous occasions but going back there again is always different. It is always nostalgic, remembering the days spent together with many of our colleagues for few years. I always feel proud of GOMCO where I received my education with best of opportunities available at the time by best of the teachers and I am eternally grateful to them. But for them, I would not be the person I am today. Not wanting to sound too cliched, but I would like to use this opportunity and forum to express my gratitude to all my teachers and batch mates and seniors and juniors, for all the learnings.

I am also thankful to the founders of Patiala Medical College Alumni Association (PMCAA) that has been provided us a common forum to keep us together for last 40 years and hopefully forever in the future. "
