The SMS Medical College marks his start with the establishment of a maternity hospital, a dispensary and a medical school in Jaipur in 1855, officially inaugurated in 1861. However, this medical school was closed in 1864. It was only in 1945 that Mirza Ismail, the Diwan(Prime Minister) of the Jaipur State, started working on the project of establishing a medical college in the state, which was to be the 15th centre for medical education in India. The foundation stone was laid down by Lord Wavell, the Governor-General and Viceroy of India, in 13 March 1946 and the Sawai Man Singh Medical College was officially opened in 1947.
The first principal of the college was G.N. Sen which was replaced by Dr. S.C. Mehta shortly afterwards, until 1951 when S.K. Menon took over as principal. In 1952 the college was recognized by the Medical Council of India and postgraduate courses started in 1952.
