The origin of Amala dates way back to 1978, when it was exclusively a cancer hospital, catering to the needs of the terminally ill. It attained the status of a medical college in 2003.

Dermatology has always been an essential part of Amala. After being upgraded to a medical college, the department was revamped in June 2005. The dermatology department at Amala was established in June 20th 2005. Over the years, the growth of the department is worth a mention. From a sole treatment oriented department, it has extended to one providing cosmetology services, dermato surgery, training of junior doctors as well as research activities .
