Bahria University Karachi launches medical and dental college

Karachi: The Bahria University has launched a medical and dental college in affiliation with PNS Shifa.

Initially, the college, recognized by Pakistan Medical and Dental College and approved by the government, will have 100 seats and the selection criteria will be based on an open merit.

The inaugural ceremony of the college was held at the university's campus on Thursday and it was inaugurated by Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Noman Bashir, who is also the Pro-Chancellor of the university. Addressing the ceremony, Bashir extended his gratitude to Dr Altamash of Altamash Dental Institute and Dr H A Khan for their cooperation and efforts in establishing the college in such a short span of time.

"At present, the country has only 79 medical colleges and universities out of which 50 are working in the private sector," said Dr Tipu Sultan, who has been appointed as the principal of the college. He added that seeing the dearth of medical institutions in the country, the Pakistan Navy decided to establish the college.

On the occasion, Bahria University Rector Vice Admiral (Retd) Farooq Rashid briefed the gathering about the future plans of the university. Daily Times
