Initially it was named after Lt. Governor Sir James Thomson, who was the founder of this school, and was started for the benefit of military personnel in Agra. The plans of the school were first made by East India Company and maintenance cost was also borne by them.

Presently it is the time of globalization of health and is overlaid by ever-developing information technology. No attempt to improve the quality of health services would be successful if appropriate use of information technology is negated. Achieving national and global health objectives requires new resources and unprecedented levels of cooperation among multilateral agencies, state and national authorities, communities, private sector and other stake holders. This website is a venture in the direction of walking hand in hand with the global health, of reaching the goals, increasing resource commitment and intensifying collaboration among partners, by dissemination of information throughout the globe.
