J S Āyurveda Mahāvidyālaya (JSAM) was established in 1938, by the Vaidya Sundarlal Joshi with the patriotic feeling and by the inspiration of Shri Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The institute was a grant-in-aid institute earlier. In 2007, our managing organization the Mahagujarat Medical Society (MMS) realized the potential of the institute and to get a free hand in developmental decisions and became self-financed. This enabled the institute to work independently toward one goal in unison and that is to develop professionally and to progress in the field of Āyurveda education, research and health care system. Since then the college and hospital have made significant progress in education and patient care.
