Cultivating the culture of Research has always been envisioned as one of the main pillars of Rawalpindi Medical University, as a means to develop healthcare professionals capable of contributing to the development of their country and the world. For the purpose thereof, right from the inception of Rawalpindi Medical University, efforts were concentrated to establish a comprehensive framework for research in Rawalpindi Medical University, as a matter of prime importance. With team efforts of specialists in the field of research, framework was made during the first year of the RMU, for the development and promotion of Research activities in RMU, called the Research Model of RMU, giving  clear scheme and plan  for establishment of required  components for not only promoting, facilitating and monitoring  the research activities but also to promote entrepreneurship  through research for future development of RMU itself.
