KMU Institute of Paramedical Sciences, IPMS


In the present healthcare system the healthcare delivery revolves around the doctors, nurses and health technicians. The technicians are diploma holders having very limited skills and knowledge and par below the requirement to influence the healthcare delivery effectively. The need was felt by the authorities concerned that a cadre of professionals be produced having enhanced knowledge, skills and behaviors who should be able to add to healthcare delivery effectively and improve the services provision in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province (KP). The idea was conceived to have an institute producing technologists to meet the requirement. As a result Institute of Paramedical Sciences (IPMS, DURANPUR, PESHAWAR) of Khyber Medical University was established in 2012 to materialize the perceived idea and offered BS eight semesters (4 years) program to students. The IPMS is the public sector institute in KP where BS programs are offered in paramedical sciences. For the first batch, admissions were offered in six disciplines (Cardiology, Radiology, Anesthesia, Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT), Surgical Technology and Dental Technology) and a total of 120 students were given admission. For the second batch the Bs program was extended to 10 disciplines adding 4 four more (Cardiac Perfusion, Intensive Care, Dialysis, and Emergency Technology) to the already existing six disciplines.

The institute has special emphasis on character building, and awareness on medical ethics so that a cadre of empathetic professionals be produced and could be able to adopt ethical approaches in healthcare provision.
