King George's Medical University, for a while known as Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University, is a medical school located in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. It came into being after the upgrade of King George's Medical College (established in 1911) into a university by an act passed by government of Uttar Pradesh on 16 September 2002.

The University has capacity for 1250 undergraduates students (including 280 dental students) and 450 postgraduate students.[1]

The MBBS course takes four and a half years to complete and has an intake of 250 students each year.[2]

Naming controversy[edit]

The name of the University has become a political issue between Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party, with both of them changing the name when they are voted to power. When the Samajwadi Party won the Uttar Pradesh state elections in 2012, the name of King George's Medical University was restored.[3]
