Dean’s Message

Prof. Dr. Abdul Rauf Memon

Hamdard College of Medicine & Dentistry aims to provide a holistic approach to medical education. We realize that our students are in very important period in their lives, and their stay with us will have very profound repercussions not only in their future lives, also to their families and ever widening spheres of influence as they mature into more and more useful member of our society. During their four or five years of stay with us, we endeavour to impart modern medical teaching with a view to make them elegant yet humble doctors and dentists, ready to face the challenges of serving the underserved population of our country in addition to being able to look after their own immediate families.
From the coming academic year, we plan to initiate a fully integrated curriculum, encouraging our students to consider the whole patient in the settings of their surroundings and communities from the start of their medical education. Our entire faculty emphasizes a team based, patient centered approach. At the moment we are also focusing on improving and modernizing our facilities at all the departments of the College.
We encourage prospective students and their parents/guardians to visit our website and also to physically visit us. Teaching to students is provided at Madinat al-Hikmah and at Hamdard University Hospital, Hamdard University Dental Hospital and two other affiliated hospitals, KVSS S.I.T.E. Hospital and Sindh Rangers Hospital, Karachi. We are also in the process of building another modern and well equipped hospital with a view to providing excellent quality affordable healthcare to our populace and for teaching of our students and help fulfill the dreams of our founding Chancellor, Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said.
