Army Medical College (Urdu: فوجي طبی کالج azeem‎, also known as AMC or AM College) is a military institute which was established in 1977 as a residential institution for imparting undergraduate medical education to selected cadets. The college also allows civilian admission of students who do not want to join Pakistan Army. Degree awarded by AMC is accredited by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC). Major General Saleem Ahmed Khan is the current serving principal.

The college was initially affiliated with Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) for MBBS degree. From 1998 to 2015, the college was affiliated with National University of Sciences and Technology (Pakistan) (NUST). The college is now a constituent campus of National University of Medical Sciences (NUMS).

The induction of students in Army Medical College is done by two methods, one is through Medical Cadet Course and the other is through NUMS entrance test. NUMS seats are for civilians while only medical cadets can join Pakistan Army. Foreign students can apply on the basis of SAT Subject Tests results in lieu of the NUMS test like other medical colleges in Pakistan.
