Ayub Medical College (AMC) (Urdu, Pashto, Hindko: ایوب میڈیکل کالج) is a leading medical institute and one of several medical colleges affiliated to Khyber Medical University located in Abbottabad, Pakistan.[1] AMC is home to 1500 students in the MBBS and BDS programs, with clinical rotations occurring at Ayub Teaching Hospital. Faculty members hold appointments at basic sciences and clinical departments. There are 212 full-time faculty members consisting of Lecturers, Assistant Professors, Associate Professors, and Professors at AMC.[2] [3]

History[edit]

AMC began functioning on 9 May 1979 at the Education Extension Centre in Abbottabad after a decision by the Government of Pakistan to establish another medical college outside the Peshawar region and to further aid in the development of medical health care in the Hazara and Gilgit-Baltistan region. The first batch of 100 students were accommodated at the Education Extension Centre, while the present AMC campus and teaching hospital were being constructed north of the town. The District Headquarters Hospital, Abbottabad remained affiliated to Ayub Medical College upon the opening of Ayub Teaching Hospital in 1990. On December 30, 1990, the present campus of Ayub Medical College opened its doors to students and faculty. The name of the college was chosen after former President Field Marshal Ayub Khan, who hailed from Haripur. Today AMC hosts one of the largest medical school campuses in Pakistan.[1]

Campus[edit]

At present the AMC campus consists of a medical school building, a teaching hospital, a nursing school, a dental school and a paramedical institute with supporting amenities for all students and staff. The medical school building has four air-conditioned, spacious lecture halls with sophisticated audiovisual teaching aids, well-equipped laboratories, museums and an air-conditioned library. A self-learning resource centre with access to the Digital Library of the Higher Education Commission is also available.[1]

Recognition[edit]

AMC is fully recognized by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), General Medical Council of the United Kingdom and Ireland and the World Health Organization (WHO). The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan has recognized many of its departments for post-graduate training such as Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Pathology.
