All the clinical departments, along with the diagnostic laboratories provide round-the-clock service at the campus.The institution has well-developed urban and rural health delivery systems, with residential facilities for training of students and interns under the department of community medicine. Models for health care delivery and Community Oriented Learning have been developed in these areas in addition to research on community health problems, which has been widely acknowledged. Multi-purpose Dumra Auditorium is adding a new dimension to the curricular and extracurricular activities of the students and staff alike.
      CMC, Ludhiana has come up by the dint of hard work and sincere efforts of the management, administrators, faculty and staff as well as the co-operation of the students. The citizens of Ludhiana and other places have always been kind in extending their helping hand in building up this institution. Above all, the Central and State Governments and many dignitaries deserve gratitude for their co-operation and help interest in the development of the College and the Hospital.

 In 1936, management of the medical school was handed over to the Arya Samaj, Saban Bazar, Ludhiana, under the aegis of Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Punjab. A separate Managing Body was nominated by the Managing Committee of Arya High School, Ludhiana and it was shifted to its own building in 1937 (now, Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, College Campus).

      The institution was recognized for LSMF (Licentiate of the Punjab State Medical Faculty) in 1938. The following year, the Managing Body decided that the Ludhiana Medical School should thereafter be called “Arya Medical School” and the hospital attached to it “Dayanand Hospital”.

       It was only in the year 1964, consistent with the policy of the Government that the Arya Medical School flowered into a full-fledged MBBS College, which came to be known as Dayanand Medical College & Hospital. The management of this college was taken over by a galaxy of prominent people of Ludhiana, who formed an organization known as the “Managing Society of Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana” and Late Shri H.R.Dhanda, a prominent industrialist of the town, became its Founder President.
