PSG and Son’s Charities after establishing PSG Institute of Medical Sciences and Research and PSG Hospitals realized in view of their Mission statement the importance of paramedical sciences to supplement the health care activities. As a result, in the year 1994, PSG College of Nursing was established with an intake of 50 students. The students of nursing in addition to their excellent coaching facilities have PSG hospitals as their training ground.


In 1998, PSG and Son’s Charities started PSG College of Paramedical Sciences offering Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Students can avail the ample opportunities at PSG hospitals for an excellent training. Physiotherapists contribute significantly to health promotion by helping at the rehabilitative process of the patients.


PSG and Son’s Charities by starting PSG College of Pharmacy have provided enough facilities for training students in Bachelor of Pharmacy. The students of pharmacy would involve themselves in diverse fields of drug characterization, isolation and developing newer strategies of drug delivery. Exposure to patients at PSG Hospitals would help them hone their skills in clinical pharmacy


On the 25th of January 1926, the Trust under the name and style of “PS Govindasamy Naidu & Sons Charities” came into being, to cater to the growing needs of education and industry by the four sons of
Sri P.S. Govindaswamy Naidu, the Founder of the Trust.

The trust felt that illiteracy caused stagnation, insults to the people from the progressive change taking place all around and left them poor and uninformed and hence it was at the root of all the ills of the society. They struck back at illiteracy with a missionary zeal and made education as their primary thrust area. The generous and leadership qualities of the Founder and his four sons surged ahead, to the force. The zeal of enthusiasm continued and many institutions were born in succession in various disciplines.
