Institute of Medicine (IOM), established in 1972 at Tribhuvan University, was entrusted with the responsibility of training health care workers at all levels for the health care manpower needs of Nepal. Within the first decade of its establishment, the IOM developed a total of 12 campuses scattered over the country—3 campuses in Kathmandu and 9 campuses outside the Kathmandu Valley.
Initially, the emphasis of IOM was on the training of middle-level health workers. Programmes serving this purpose include ANM, CMA, Proficiency Certificate Course in General Medicine, Pharmacy, Radiology, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Health Laboratory and Traditional Medicine.
With the passage of time, the institutional goals of IOM have continued to change. The mission of the IOM eventually expanded into training tertiary level health professionals.

In 1978, a community-oriented integrated MBBS programme was started with intake of 22 students. Subsequently the class size was increased to 60, and in 2013 it was further increased to 76.
In a groundbreaking moment for the institute, Professor Prakash Sayami was appointed as the new dean of the Institute, prompted by a second fast-unto-death by Professor Govinda K.C. This brought a change to the system of appointment of the officials on the basis of political affiliations and promulgated the system of seniority in the Institute.
Mounting pressure from the Tribhuvan University officials on political appointments and provision of affiliations to resource poor hospitals led to the resignation of Professor Prakash Saymi. He was succeeded by political appointee Prof. Sashi Sharma. Prof. Sharma is alleged to be involved in embezzlement of large amounts of money during his term as the vice-president of Nepal Medical Council and was subjected to investigations by the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA). In reaction, Professor Govinda KC, the philanthropist orthopedic surgeon, announced a fast unto death in January 2014.
In the beginning, the importance was given to training of middle level health workers. The programs for this purpose were:
  • ANM
  • CMA
  • Proficiency Certificate Course in General Medicine
  • Pharmacy
  • Radiology
  • Physiotherapy
  • Nursing
  • Health Laboratory

CAMPUS
Maharajgunj Medical Campus (MC) at Maharajgunj, Kathmandu is one of the nine campuses of the Institute of Medicine(IoM). Since its upgradation to the status of a campus of IoM from the Auxiliary Health Worker’s School in 1972, MC has, during the span of just over two decades, played a significant role in conducting academic programmes for the development of different categories of Human Resources for Health (HRH) in Nepal. Of the twenty-nine academic programmes that the IoM runs to date, twenty-five consisting of eighteen postgraduate, four undergraduate and three certificate programmes (about ninty percent of the educational activities of the IoM) are being conducted at MC. In its endeavour to create competent and diverse Human Resources for Health. HRH, ranging from a Primary health Care worker to a Medical Specialist for rendering primary to tertiary health care in the country. MC has indeed taken a long stride in the field of medical education in Nepal.
The establishment of Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) in 1983 near to MC premise, made the fact very clear imparting medical education does require a teaching hosital for facilitating teaching-learning activities effectively. With the establishment of TUTH, MC acquired the full status of the First Medical School in Nepal. Since then, MC not only became responsible for imparting medical education but also started to provide tertiary health care to all those coming to THTH. The faculty of medicine here played a dual role- that of a medical teacher and a medical specialist.

Institutional Objectives:
In its endeavour to fulfilling country’s need of Human Resources for Health an research undertakings, MC in association with TUTH and accordance with the HMG New Education Act 1993 (2050), has the following overall institutional objectives:
* To undertake undergraduate and postgraduate medical education to create generalist and specialist medical professionals.
* To train human resources for health in allied health sciences.
* To deliver preventive, curative, promotional and rehabilitiative health care.
* To conduct educational and biomedico-social research.
* To implement continuing education for Human Resources for Health.
* To establish academic linkage with international medical schools/colleges/universities.

Future:
It has been felt that Maharajgunj Campus (MC) of the IOM, after having served the nation for over two decades, must concentrate on tertiary education under the academic guidelines set by the HMG and promulgated by the Ministry of Education in 1993. As a result, MC has stopped many of its programmes and acquired newer sets of roles and responsibilities brought about by the changes in the global prespective in general and societal needs in Nepal in particular. If this twentieth century needs to pass on legacy to its future, changes in role and responsibilities of MC become inevitable and calls for thinking globally while acting locally in order to herald medical education that will be appropriate for the twenty-first century.
Certificate programmes being conducted at MC are after 12 years of formal education and are in the hospotal-related areas of Health Laboratory, Pharmacy and Radiography. A bachelor course in Optometry was started in 1997.
MC now runs the MBBS programme as its main academic programme; it will gradually undertake other specific undergraduate and postgraduate programmes from its departmental level.
Looking ahead towrads the future, MC aims to achieve self-reliance in the production of medical and allied health science graduates and postgraduates in different specialities of medical seiences to fulfill the demand of Human Resources for Health in the country.
