Modern medical education in India began in 1822 in a medical school at Calcutta, but postgraduate medical education started much later. It was restricted to two or three medical colleges at the beginning of this century and was confined to a few specialties such as medicine, surgery and midwifery. Where such qualifications existed, very few students enrolled. Today more than 80 out of a total of 107 medical colleges have facilities for postgraduate training in sixteen broad specialties and over a dozen sub-specialties such as cardiology, nephrology and aviation medicine.
