The history of Jamia Hamdard begins with the establishment of a small Unani clinic in the year 1906 by Hakeem Hafiz Abdul Majeed, one of the well-known practitioners of Unani System of Medicine of his time. He gave the name “Hamdard” to his venture which means “sympathy for all and sharing of pain”.
