Dr. Moopen’s Medical College Hospital-formerly known as DMWIMS- was founded by DM Education and Research Foundation, after analyzing the needs and gaps in the health care facilities in the Wayanad area. It is the first Medical College in Kerala established in a backward, hilly & tribal district. It is also the first Medical College Hospital in North Kerala and one among the very few Medical College Hospitals in the country established in a rural area to receive NABH accreditation.

We are dedicated to transforming health through medical education, healthcare and medical research. We offer quality healthcare at an affordable cost. We are committed to providing high-quality medical education and training. We aim to improve the healthcare infrastructure and overall development of Wayanad.


Wayanad, a district in Kerala, was known for being one of the least developed areas in terms of healthcare. The district lacked proper medical facilities and healthcare services, with only a handful of inadequate hospitals. Despite government efforts, the district needed private support to meet the health needs of the local community, which was predominantly made up of tribals living below the poverty line. These people often had to travel long distances to access even basic medical treatment.

To address this issue, Padma Shree Dr. Azad Moopen established a medical college in Wayanad, which was the first of its kind in the district. The college was established with the aim of providing high-quality medical education, training, and healthcare at an affordable cost, thereby improving the healthcare infrastructure and overall development of the region. It is also one of the few medical colleges in the country that has received NABH accreditation.
