JN Medical College came into existence through the enthusiasm of Dr. Sir Ziauddin Ahmed, who saw the need for a medical college for the poor community at Aligarh. He worked with his colleagues and students (old boys) to work for the establishment of a medical college at the Aligarh Muslim University.[3] He raised the funds for the college.However the dream couldn't fulfil during his lifetime because of the death of Sir Ziauddin Ahmed in London.

The college under the leadership of Prof. Hadi Hasan,[4][5][6] who was a leading force in the fund raising campaign. Neatrly eight million rupees were collected from all corners of the nation. The medical college was declared open on 2 October 1962 (the 93rd birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi) with an intake of 1st Batch of 40 MBBS students and the same strength continued up to 1984. The intake was increased from 40 to 100 students in 1985 and this remained so up to 1995. The academic session of 1996–97 witnessed a further increase in the intake of MBBS students up to 150 as well as beginning of BDS course with intake of 40 students in the first batch by the permission of MCI and DCI respectively.

Colonel S. Bashir Hasan Zaidi (vice chancellor), Major SMH Naqvi (Principal) and Mr MM Siddiqui (Registrar) must be given particular credit for overcoming all difficulties in starting the college.
