FMH College of Medicine and Dentistry (abbreviated as FMHCMD), established in 2001, is a private college of medicine and dentistry located in Shadman, Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. The college is part of the Fatima Memorial System, accredited by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council and registered with the World Health Organization, Avicenna Directories and International Medical Education Directory. It is affiliated with the University of Health Sciences, Lahore.
The neighboring Fatima Memorial Hospital is attached to the college as a teaching and training hospital.
Following hospitals are attached with FMHCMD for clinical training:
- Fatima Memorial Hospital
- Hijaz Hospital
- Khair-Un-Nisa Hospital
The medical school of FMHCMD takes in 150 students every year on the basis of MDCAT scores as well as conducting their own test. The affiliated hospitals provide immense clinical exposure to the medical students as well as giving them the ability to interact with the patients during their pre-clinical years. The Anatomy and Histology department of FMH College of Medicine and Dentistry has two major areas of activity; education and research. Both these activities of the department occur in well-equipped laboratories. Cadaver dissection is a primary teaching method in the subject of gross anatomy, which is accomplished in a well-ventilated dissection hall comprising 10-dissection stations and two mortuary plants, accommodating six bodies each.
FMH has one of the best dental schools in the private sector of Pakistan, giving admission to 75 students per year. It has an outstanding dental faculty and provides immense clinical exposure which gives students the chance to improve their clinical skills. The purpose built departments of medical sciences are well equipped and manned by highly qualified and experienced teachers. Pre-clinical dental practical training is imparted to the students in well-equipped Prosthodontics, Phantom Head, Oral Anatomy and Oral Pathology Laboratories Right from the start efforts are made to develop knowledge based clinical skills so as to achieve integration of the curriculum set by the University of Health Sciences. This helps to improve the practical application of knowledge and improves the recall memory of the students. Unlike in the past, whereby basic and clinical sciences were spaced by a few years, the newly designed curriculum helps to achieve a better transition from basic to the clinical sciences. The transition is greatly facilitated by pre-clinical year demonstrations and introduction to clinical techniques before the actual onset of clinical training.
FMH College of Medicine and Dentistry gives admission to 150 MBBS and 75 BDS students each year, as of 2013. The campus of the college holds near 1000 students. It is equipped with lecture halls, laboratories, museums, an auditorium and a cafeteria. The learning resource center consists of a Library and a state of the art fully air-conditioned Computer lab with one hundred (100)-computer workstations providing all facilities essential for the students, faculty and staff. High speed Internet connectivity as well as online research journals availability is just a few of the facilities available in this computer lab. The Campus has an extremely advanced system of Wi-Fi connectivity and students can access the internet anytime,anywhere.
