Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences (MAIDS), New Delhi is housed by Maulana Azad Medical College complex having more than 30 acre campus, is housed with city's four landmark hospitals namely Lok Nayak Hospital, G B Pant, Guru Nanak Eye Centre. It all started when Lord Irwin laid down the foundation stone of the hospital on 10 Jan 1930, then called the Irwin hospital. Initially this hospital had 350 beds, which was big enough to cater the small population of Delhi during that era.
Recognizing the need for a medical college in this area, the Govt. of India in it's second 5 year plan recommended the starting of a “Composite Medical College” in Aug 1957. The medical college was attached to the Irwin Hospital and named as “Delhi Medical College”. Col Bashi Lal Taneja was appointed as first Principal in April 1958. The college was housed in a new 3 storey block designated as Anatomy Building (present Burns and Plastics Surgery Ward).
The College was aptly called as Maulana Azad Medical College and later the word memorial was dropped. Maulana Abul Kalam Azad was first Union Minister of education and scientific research of independent India.
