At the call of our National Leaders many students left Institutions that had even the remotest links with the erstwhile British Government. During the Non Cooperation movement Medical Education in Calcutta was imparted in 3 Institutions, namely: Medical College of Bengal; Campbell Medical School (Later known as NRS Medical College) and Carmichael Medical College (Later known as R G Kar Medical College). The first two were Government Institutions and the last, though not a full fledged Government Institution had some links with the British. At a meeting of eminent Students of Medical College at Hellide Park, the idea of a Swadeshi Medical College was first mooted upon. This meeting was presided over by DeshbandhuChittaranjan Das and one of the speakers was Dr. Sundari Mohan Das. The students were assured that such a College would be established.
