The Medical Sisters of St. Joseph is a Christian congregation dedicated to St. Joseph, started in 1944 by the Servant of God, Rev. Msgr. Joseph. C. Panjikaran. The call of our congregation is to experience the merciful love of the Father, revealed through Jesus Christ, and to reciprocate that love through loving service to the poor, the sick, and the least of the brethren, to share it in our community, and to attain holiness of life.

The founder was a highly qualified person with a divine vision, the vision of the great prophet Isaiah. "The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.".

Presently, the College offers B.Pharm , M.Pharm in three specializations ( Pharmaceutics, Pharmaceutical Chemistry , Pharmacology) and Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm. D - Six Years).
