It is indeed a matter of pride that Wah Medical College (WMC) which embarked on training of medical undergraduates in the year 2004 with a mission to be ranked among the top medical colleges in Pakistan, has now become a symbol of quality medical education in the country. It stands tall as an emblem of excellence in medical education. The success of every dynamic organization lies in its vision, teamwork and perseverance. I am delighted to see that the faculty members and administration of Wah Medical College has these professional qualities. They all deserve great appreciation for their commitment and accomplishment.
As one of the top subsidiaries of the POF Board / POF Welfare Trust, WMC is significantly contributing in training of medical undergraduate as well as postgraduate students and is actively involved in innovative learning, research and information sharing with national and international academic institutions. Though the students of the College have secured top positions in the University Professional examinations among all the affiliated Medical Colleges, yet we have miles to go. It is very satisfying to note that WMC faculty and students being aware of their social responsibility are actively involved in educating the general public on preventive health in Wah Cantt and adjoining areas. I am sure WMC faculty will also give due importance to inculcate the values taught by our religion in our budding doctors.
POF Hospital is the teaching hospital for WMC. Since the inception of WMC, the hospital has gradually evolved from a secondary care hospital to a proper tertiary care teaching hospital. This would go a long way in providing the necessary teaching environment for students and young doctors of the College. It is a matter of great satisfaction that induction of WMC clinical faculty has improved the standard of care at POF Hospital. Many new specialties have been added and POF employees and their dependants can get quality healthcare at Wah for which they had to be referred to Rawalpindi.
I take this opportunity to welcome 18th batch of medical students who will be admitted to WMC. I expect WMC to continue to set and uphold superior standards for educational excellence in the future and assure you of continuous support of the top management of POF in achievement of your goals. May ALLAH bless you with success and help you in your endeavors.
