JIPMER traces its origin to 1823 when a medical school called "Ecole de Medicine de Pondicherry" was established by French government. In November 1956 the Government of India took over the medical college in the wake of the ‘de facto’ transfer of Pondicherry. The college was upgraded as a Regional Centre and named as Jawaharlal Institute of Post-graduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) on 13th July 1964. JIPMER campus is located in the western entrance of Pondicherry on the highway and spread over 195 acres of sloping land that is a hillock, known in vernacular as ‘Gorimedu’. The campus is self sufficient in many ways and contains well laid roads, green trees & plants apart from Post-Office, Bank, Shopping centre, Hostels, and Residential complex.

    The institute is also active in research in various fields of modern medicine & health and medical education. A research council at institute level looks after the research activities and there is a scientific society which provides forum for presentation of the research work. A number of conferences, workshops, seminars and training courses are conducted by the institute every year. Funds for research come from mural and extramural sources like ICMR, UGC, DBT, WHO, etc. A number of research papers are published by residents and faculty staff every year in journals of national and international repute. Also quite frequently a number of awards and fellowships are won by the faculty. Some important national Journals like Biomedicine (an International Journal of Biomedical Sciences) is published from JIPMER. Many text books have been authored by the faculty members.
