Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) is situated in Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh. This college was founded by the Government of Andhra Pradesh in 2006. The RIMS Medical College & Hospital, conceived by Chief Minister –Dr. Y.S. Raja Sekhar Reddy, was inaugurated on 27 September 2006 by the then UPA Chair Person Smt. Sonia Gandhi. This Medical Institute started functioning from 1 August 2006 in 2010.The first batch of Under Graduates admitted entered final MBBS. The institute was constructed within a time period of 14 months in 210 acres of land with beautiful landscapes all around.
The principal objective of establishment of this institute is to improve quality of health care in this region and make medical education accessible to all the eligible students of the region. The Government of Andhra Pradesh had taken special interest in allocation of budget to this institute, close monitoring of quality of construction and completion of project within given time frame. Such an infrastructure is not available anywhere in the State.
The first MCI Inspection took place in 2005 and was followed by another 7 inspections. Very few colleges in the state have 150 admissions per year. The MCI Inspectors were also astonished seeing infrastructure & equipment provided to the institute. The Institute has passed through all the MCI inspections successfully without any interruption. The first batch of Under Graduates admitted entered left the college with there successful degrees. The Team constituted by Dr. NTR University of Health Sciences inspected the college in July 2010 to grant permission to start the internee programme. Sudden budding of new institutions all over the country, availability of limited Post Graduate seats in the country and other conditions made acute shortage of Qualified Staff throughout the country. For any new budding institute, satisfying the norms of MCI regarding staff is an Herculean Task. The Corporate Medical Colleges are attracting the qualified hands with attractive salaries and with other benefits. Hence, majority of Government Medical Colleges are without adequate qualified hands. Government of AP made alternate arrangements to attract more number of qualified hands by introducing semi-autonomous regulations to the Faculty wherein lump sum salaries are paid without pension benefits and other service facilities. The continuous efforts of Director of Medical Education & RIMS Authorities succeeded to recruit reasonably good number of qualified hands. The staff position in the institute is reasonably good compared to other Government and Private Medical Colleges. Seven walk in interview were conducted from 2006 to till date and recruited the following staff: Professors-11
Specialist’s services are very essential at Tertiary Level Care Hospitals like RIMS. The Administrators are facing difficulty in recruiting Specialists especially in Radio diagnosis & Radiotherapy, Psychiatry and General Medicine.

Due to lack of transport, in the initial stages, efforts had been made to run APSRTC Buses. Economically deprived groups could not pay bus charges. Hence, the hospital turnover was poor. In order to get more clinical material for the students and to bring medical and to provide medical adi to maximum number of people and utilize the resources to optimum level, the Government has taken steps to provide free transport from old RIMS to the New RIMS. This effort improved the turnover of patients to significant level. Now the daily out patient’s attendance has reached 1800.
