Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) originated on 1 January 1823 as "Ecole de Medicine de Pondichery," a medical school established by the French imperial government in India to train French citizens in Pondichery. It was one of the earliest institutions of tropical medicine and the teaching staff consisted of surgeons and doctors of the French navy and troupes colones. Students who were trained here were granted a diploma called Medicin Locale that allowed them to practice medicine in the colonial territories. Under the French, the college was located in the heart of the town of Pondicherry in the modified buildings of the high court, opposite Le place de Gaulle, which is now the Legislative Assembly Hall. In 1959, SE Le Comte Stanislas Ostrorog, Ambassadeur de France aux Indes, laid the foundation stone of the new medical college building that was located on the outskirts of the town and, in 1964, the college moved to its new campus at Gorimedu.

With the de jure transfer of Puducherry to India in 1956, the Government of India took over the college and renamed it simply Medical College, Pondicherry. For a short period, it was called the Dhanvantri Medical College and, on July 13, 1964, after Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's death on May 27, 1964, it was again renamed to "Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research" (JIPMER) (on 13 July 1964). Today, the institution is universally known by the acronym JIPMER.

In 2008, JIPMER was declared as an Institution of National Importance by an act of Indian Parliament.

In 2014, JIPMER started jipmer international school for public health (JISPH).
