History Edit

The construction of the Faculty of Medicine was proposed in 1968 by Prof. Bimala Kalakicha to the council of Khon Kaen University.[1] The proposal was passed on to the governmental cabinet and eventually made it into the 'Third National Economic and Social Development Plan' of 1972-1976.[2] Construction received cabinet approval on 4 August 1972 and the faculty opened on 9 September 1972.The first cohort of medical students were admitted in 1974, selected from students in the Faculties of Science and Arts and consisted of 16 students. In 1973, a proposal was made to the cabinet requesting for assistance from the government of New Zealand in the construction of the university hospital.

The construction of the university hospital was initiated in 1973, designed by the British company Llewelyn-Davies Weeks Forester-Walkers and Bor. and construction by the New Zealand company Kingston Reynolds Thom & Allardice Limited (KRTA).[3] On 19 February 1974, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Queen Sirikit, Princess Sirindhorn and Princess Chulabhorn Walailak laid the foundation for the hospital and the hospital was named Srinagarind Hospital in commemoration of Princess Srinagarindra.The hospital was opened on 15 December 1983.[4]
