About RMU

Message of the Vice Chancellor

I, on behalf of the academic council of Rawalpindi Medical University welcome you all to Rawalpindi Medical University & Allied Hospitals, Rawalpindi. It is indeed a great honor and privilege for me to be the Vice Chancellor of this great institution. It was not in my slightest imagination when I joined this college as a first year medical student 33 years ago that I would one day be given the honor of being the Vice Chancellor of this University. For me, RMU is not just a medical University, it is way beyond that. Everything that Allah has given me is because of RMU. Being the graduate of second batch RMC, being the first Rawalian FCPS, first Rawalian Assistant Professor, first Rawalian Professor and now the first Rawalian Vice Chancellor– my love and passion for RMU, its faculty, its staff and above all the wonderful students is not describable by words. The vision of the founder Principal of RMC, Prof. Abdul Lateef (Late) “Enter to learn; leave to serve.” is engraved into every Rawalian. I am also grateful and appreciate the services of all our teachers and past and present faculty members who have given enormous services in the development of this institution.

Infrastructure & Human
Resource Development

One of the important challenges faced with the up-gradation of the Rawalpindi Medical College to the status of the university was the unavailability of the basic infrastructure required for the university including a separate university secretariat hosting the important components of the university life VC office, Registrar office, Examination cell, etc. Ensuring their availability was one of the primary requirements of the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan as per the guidelines published for the recognition of a university. Apart from the development of the basic university infrastructure, we were also required to revamp our human resources to fulfill the new responsibilities as well gear up for future challenges, including ever-increasing patient load in our attached tertiary care teaching hospitals. To meet the requirements of the regulatory bodies and our unshakeable commitment towards patient care required us to take immediate actions on was footings to build the required infrastructure and upgrade the human resource pool.
