   Muhammad Medical College
Welcome to Muhammad Medical College
                    I am very pleased to learn that Muhammad Medical College is all geared up to
                    induct fresh batch of aspiring would-be medical graduates, for whom this
                    prospectus is being brought out.

                    Muhammad Medical College Mirpurkhas, the only Medical Institute in lower Sindh, although
                    still in its 10th year of foundation, has earned recognition as thoroughly professional
                    institute committed to dissemination of quality medical education.

The six batches of medical graduates passed out to date from this college have been well received and
absorbed in the professional organizations and health care system of the country. This is in fact a tribute to the
devotion & dedication of its faculty & management who have set up well equipped labs and museums etc. with
most modern facilities. The University of Sindh takes pride in having such prestigious institutions in its fold.

                    As the world is turning into a global village, our future doctors face a gigantic task of
                    mastering Community Oriented Health Sciences on one hand and developing skills and
                    competence required at international level on other. Medical Education is changing very
                    rapidly and "Modernizing Medical Education" by NHS in UK is a glaring example.

                     A thorough understanding of modern aspects of Medical Education is most vital for our
                     students and doctors. At the same time full comprehension of concepts like Medical Ethics,
                     Evidence Based Medicine and Better Communication Skills should be provided to our
students. I intend to make full use of my experience of being a Fellow of two Royal Colleges and more recently,
an examiner of all four Royal Colleges of Surgeons of UK, for the benefit of our students. A close liaison is also
being developed with some UK institutes that will further help our future doctors.

 Message by
 Dr. Syed Ali Muhammad
 Life is a strange phenomenon.Whether you do good things or bad things
 or nothing, it moves on. Time flies. Children become boys & girls, then
 young adults, then middle aged and then old people. (Shakespeare will
 count 7 stages, others less or more), but nevertheless, before you know,
 you are heading towards eternity, leaving all your loved ones and houses
 and land and earnings behind.That is because you never owned them.As
 Mir has said "Yeh hi jana keh kuch na jana haL.So bhi ik umr mein hua maloom.

 However one thing is certain. If you do what you have been asked to do and refrain from what you have been
 forbidden with, Someone ensures that your beloved are properly taken care of, your name stays prestigious
 and your deeds carry on.

 I do not know if I would be able to see the seeds of my institutions of knowledge and treatment turning into
 full fledged trees, but I am sure that God almighty never lets any sincere effort go wasted. So I am sure that
 my and your children and all the future children of Mirpurkhas, Sindh and Pakistan will witness Muhammad
 Colleges, Institutes and Hospitals turning into centres of excellence and will be fully benefited by these
 institutions.And perhaps I will also witness from somewhere high up, my and your children smiling in these

 May God grant MMC, MMCH and MIST all the recognition and success that these institutes truly deserve.
