Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church Medical College

The foundation stone of this institution was laid in the year 1967 by a small group of dedicated and enterprising rural folk in Kolenchery along with the progressive leaders of the church for the development and upliftment of the health status of the people living in and around Kolenchery. A society with the objective to engage in health related activities, resulted in the establishment of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church Medical Mission Hospital in the year 1970.
The institution was upgraded in 2002 to the level of a medical college admitting 100 undergraduate students each year.
Since 2011 the college offers post-graduate education in the departments of general medicine, surgery, anaesthesia, paediatrics, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynaecology and super-specialisation in neonatology.
The MOSC Medical College Hospital is now equipped with 1200 beds. Of these, 520 are in the general category and meet the requirements stipulated by the Medical Council of India (MCI) for the teaching departments. The remaining beds belong to the private, semi-private and the unitary wards of the super-specialty departments.
