Government Medical Colleges in Pakistan


The position of doctor or dentist is greatly respected in Pakistan. To cater to the demand for medical training there, the Pakistani government maintains many medical colleges and encourages the establishment of quality private institutions. There are over 60 public and privately accredited medical colleges in Pakistan, and it is the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council who oversees their accreditation and standards.

Ayub Medical College

  • Established in 1978, Ayub Medical College comprises a 1,000-bed teaching hospital, nuclear medical training facility and schools of nursing, dentistry and paramedical. The Pakistani government's North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) established Ayub, now affiliated with the University of Peshawar, and recognized by the General Medical Council of the UK and the World Health Organization (WHO). The college publishes the peer-reviewed "Journal of Ayub Medical College," one of Pakistan’s few recognized medical journals.
