The Department of Medicine was established with the establishment of the new college in 1996 when the post of Professor was filled. The department is situated at present on the building that houses the DTC. Initially there were only two units, on of which was headed by Honorary Assistant Professor but in due course regular teacher took over the unit. Initially the department faced a lot of problems in the form of lack of teachers and basic infrastructure. Now the department has all the facilities for undergraduate and post graduate teaching. Post Graduation was started in 2003 with the admission of two students. Facilities in the Department include the treadmill, a well equipped ICCU and a Dialysis unit, in fact the Dialysis Unit has become the USP of the Hospital with largest number of Dialysis in any of the Government Medical College in Gujarat. The department also runs two Diabetes Clinics, one in the Sir Takhatsinghji Hospital and another at the UHTC (Urban Health Training Center) in the heart of the city.
