JNMC came into existence through the vision of Dr. Sir Ziauddin Ahmed, who saw the need of a medical college for the poor community at Aligarh. He worked with colleagues and students to establish a medical college at the university.[3] He raised funds for the college. He died before the institution opened. Colonel S. Bashir Hasan Zaidi (vice chancellor), Major SMH Naqvi (Principal) and Mr MM Siddiqui (Registrar) were instrumental in starting the college.

The college grew under the leadership of Khan Bahadur Islam Nabi Khan and Prof. Hadi Hasan,[4][5][6] who drove the fundraising campaign. Nearly eight million rupees were collected from across India. The medical college opened on 2 October 1962 (the 93rd birthday of Mahatma Gandhi) with an intake of 40 MBBS students. Enrollment of 40 students annually continued up to 1985 when it increased to 100 students, which continued until 1996, when enrollment grew to 150 That year a BDS course debuted with an intake of 40 students.
