About Vice Chancellor

It is with a sense of solemn responsibility that I address you at the dawn of a new era in the academic history of Khyber Medical University. We witnessed substantial horizontal growth initiated by the valorous efforts and inclusive vision of the pioneers of this beacon of knowledge in the region. Within a short span of 13 years since inception 2007 to 2020, eight constituent and 93 affiliated institutes were added to the university, and a faculty of 220 eminent scholars was enlisted, including 52 doctors of philosophy, an unprecedented achievement and a matter of pride for any institution. The keen reception of various programs and courses offered by the university among scholars from a wide range of health disciplines is an ever-strengthening evidence of the verity of that vision.

Appreciating our pioneers’ accomplishments, let us now initiate the much-needed paradigm shift in the academic stance of the institution; let us take education from being to becoming. We need to bring our structures, processes and outcomes at par with the best international institutions, with the aim of empowering our scholars to actualize their potentials, bringing them to their rightful place in the forefront of scientific discovery and innovation as per Global demands.
