Jagadguru Jayadeva Murugarajendra Medical College, is one of the premier institutes established by Bapuji Educational Association, Karnataka. Bapuji Educational Association was established by a group of eminent Philanthropic people of Davangere whose main concern was the upliftment of education in and around Davangere, which is a rural town. Apart from Medical College, the Association has established several educational institutions in the field of Dentistry, Pharmacy, Engineering, Education, Law, Nursing, Arts and Science, Commerce, Primary and Secondary education.
JJM Medical College was established in 1965 with consensus and permission of Government of Karnataka, Medical Council of India and Central Government. India is a densely populated country with over one billion population in the rural areas. Nearly 70% of its population live in villages and remaining in the cities. The primary and the secondary healthcare system is not available readily to the public and health awareness and its improvement takes a sideline in the minds of the rural public. Hence, the institution was established to develop healthcare personnel and to cater to the health needs of the local people. The constant efforts of its present Hon. Secretary Sri. Dr. Shamanur Shivashankarappa is at its zenith and made Davangere a Mecca of education.
