Vice Chancellor Message
It gives me immense pleasure to welcome to Nishtar Medical University as a Vice Chancellor. Nishtar Medical University is one of the premiers, historical and prestigious institution established in 1951-52. Nishtar Medical University has always occupied a unique position in the public sector universities, being the first and by now only medical university of south Punjab. It serves an excellent interface between health care provisions and medical education. Its allied hospitals are bearing the brunt of south Punjab and adjoining areas of Sindh, Baluchistan and KPK. Nishtar Medical University Hospital, being the constituent hospital, is providing exemplary medical education to undergraduate and post graduate medical and paramedical students. It is imparting community-oriented self directed learning, altruism, professionalism and leadership in its students since long.
My aim is to make it a state of the art medical university, capable of nurturing the undergraduate and post graduate students with quality teaching and training. It should be able to promote the culture of research and ethical orientation. It must inculcate the true sense of education into the students. However this aim challenges both students and faculty members to rise to their potentials, identify their strengths, and direct to acquire much-needed lifelong learning skills for academic and social pursuits. The ever-expanding faculty of Nishtar Medical University consists of scholars, professors and specialists, who are committed to the highest standards of teaching, training, research, and service delivery. All of us can lead this university into an era of innovation and cutting-edge scientific inquiry with a truly scientific, social, and economic impact.
