Creating a country imbued with a scientific culture Jawaharlal Nehru dream, and immediately after independence he prepared a grand design to achieve it. Among the temples of modern India, which he developed was a center of excellence in the field of medical sciences. Nehru's dream was that such a center would set the pace for medical education and research in Southeast Asia, and in this he had the full support of his Health Minister Rajkumari Amrit Kaur.
Medical examination and Development Committee, chaired by Sir Joseph Bhore, the Indian civil servant, in 1946 already recommended the establishment of a national medical center which would concentrate on meeting the need for highly qualified personnel to look after the country's expanding health care activities. Dreams Nehru and Amrit Kaur and the recommendations Bhore Committee gathered to create a proposal that found favor with the government of New Zealand. A generous grant from New Zealand under the Colombo Plan laid the first stone in the foundation of all India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in 1952.The AIIMS was finally created in 1956 as an autonomous institution through an Act of Parliament, to serve as the nucleus for the education of excellence in all aspects of health care.

The Institute has comprehensive facilities for teaching, research and patient care. As provided for in the law, AIIMS conducts training programs in medical and para courses for both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and awards its own degrees. Teaching and research are conducted in 42 disciplines. In the field of medical research AIIMS is the lead, having more than 600 scientific publications of teachers and researchers in a year.
