The Department of Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy previously known as skin & VD used to be a separate Department from very inceptation of Medical College, Shimla. In earlier years only one or two faculty members were there in the department and they were assisted by non PG Registrars as per the prevailing conditions those days the faculty staff was deputed on contract basis from Central Health services. Dr. R.C. Sharma was the first regular faculty member who joined as Asstt. Prof. in 1973 and later become Prof. & Head subsequently Principal IGMC Shimla and retired in 2001. Dr. N.L. Sharma was second regular faculty member who joined as Asstt. Prof. in 1980 and became Prof. in 2000 and retired in October 2008. Starting Post Graduate Degree was always on top priority of the then faculty but it got materialized in year 2002 when permission was granted by MCI to start PG degree in this department. The first batch of PG degree was started in May 2003 and since then two PG students were admitted every year till 2009. In 2010 one additional seat of PG degree was started so we have now three PG students every year. Till date 11 students have passed their MD degree from the department.
