About Nishtar Medical University

The idea of establishing a medical teaching institution in Multan was first forwarded by Dr. Mohammad Jamal Bhutta in 1945. At that time, there was only one medical college in Punjab, that is, the King Edward Medical College in Lahore. The ratio of Muslim students in this college was very low. After the birth of Pakistan on the 14th of August, 1947, the Hindu doctors migrated to India. There was need for more doctors for the health care of people. The government of the Punjab decided to establish a new medical college and hospital at Multan.
On 31st December 1950, at a largely attended public meeting held at Lahnge Khan’s Garden adjoining the Civil Hospital Multan, the Governor of the Punjab Sardar Abdur Rab Nishtar made the announcement of the decision by the government of Punjab to establish a medical college and hospital at Multan.
It was named as Nishtar Medical College and Hospital to honor Sardar Abdur Rab Nishtar.
A donation of 1.815 million rupees was presented to the governor by the people of Multan for the construction of the college. This donation increased to 3.3 million rupees later on.

My vision is to see Nishtar Medical University as a modern, progressive, state of the art Medical institution where educational activities, research and clinical services will develop side by side in an environment of enviable institutional traditions, tolerance and courage to question, centered around a burning passion to ally the pain and sufferings of our people, to produce great scientific minds and to promote a culture of ethical and evidence based practice.

To replace traditional public address type class lectures to problem oriented, student based, small group learning and a gradual shift to modular system., to develop a robust, transparent and reliable system of evaluation, to develop international collaboration with reputable universities , to develop a parallel program of sporting and extracurricular activities, to introduce best practice guidelines and a vigilant periodic surveillance system to meet the Minimum Service Delivery Standards (MDMS), to work towards a paper free hospital, to hire experts in research and medical education and to start a university medical journal.
