The Pak Red Crescent Medical College was established in 2012 by the Pakistan Red Crescent Society – Punjab, which is working since time immemorial towards the improvement of health, prevention of disease and mitigation of human suffering by manmade and natural disaster.
The principal aim of establishing the Pak Red Crescent Medical College along with a teaching hospital is to provide healthcare facilities to the underprivileged population of District Kasur and southern part of Lahore. The College has highly qualified and experienced faculty along with all the latest teaching facilities including digital library and computer labs.
It is a matter of great pride for me to extend my felicitations and a warm welcome to the new entrants of first-year MBBS. Our prime objective is to produce not only eminent doctors but also good and God-fearing human beings. The Pakistan Red Crescent Society – Punjab is providing full cooperation and support to the medical college for its efficient functioning and for providing all the facilities to the faculty and the students. I wish and pray that you get the best possible medical education from the faculty of this college and at the culmination of five years MBBS program make a positive contribution to the noble profession of medicine. It is my dream that this medical institution and the students studying therein are respected in society.

The Pak Red Crescent Medical College which was established seven years ago, has passed the stage of infancy and now it has grown-up to a level where it can be compared to any good private medical college in Punjab. The two newly build academic blocks have all the teaching facilities including five lecture theatres, seven state-of-the-art laboratories, five demonstration rooms, a fully equipped dissection hall, four museums, a skill lab, two libraries, a computer lab and common rooms. In addition, we have separate boys’ and girls’ hostels, a cafeteria and an auditorium, all in the same premises.
I strongly believe that the most important single factor which differentiate a good academic institution from the ordinary is its faculty and we at Pak Red Crescent Medical College feel proud to have highly qualified and experienced faculty in all the subjects. We have recently added 48 new faculty members including 12 Professors who have extensive teaching experience in some of the highly reputed medical colleges in Pakistan as well as abroad.
The attached teaching hospital which is situated in the same premises, has 500 beds, five fully equipped operating theatres and all the diagnostic facilities including X-Rays, ultrasound, C.T Scan and a state-of-the-art clinical laboratory. The hospital is situated in a thickly populated area where we get lot of poor patients from the surrounding villages. We have very busy OPD and Accident & Emergency departments since we provide free treatment to all the poor and needy patients. This facility is not only a blessing for an underprivileged population of southern Lahore and district Kasur but at the same time it provides ample opportunities to our students to develop their clinical skills and hands on training, the opportunity which is although available in the Government sector teaching hospitals but is almost nonexistent in most of the hospitals attached to private medical colleges.
We believe in strict discipline; therefore, we expect our students to abide by all the rules and regulations of our college, failing that would make them liable to have strict disciplinary action taken against them which includes expulsion from the college. In addition, we expect our students to be regular in their classes, minimum attendance required being 80% and pass all their class as well as ward tests. Any student who fail to meet these two criteria, will be debarred to appear in the professional examination of the UHS.
Our mission as an institution is to teach with creativity and dedication, to heal with quality and compassion, and to inspire discovery and innovation with integrity and resolve. I along with my faculty are therefore, committed not only to impart the best possible knowledge to our students but at the same time we spend a significant time and energy in their personality building through our well-organized mentorship program and healthy co-curricular activities. The objective is that when they graduate from our institution, they not only become top class doctors but at the same time excellent human beings having qualities like empathy, compassion and tolerance so that they could have a positive impact on the society, regardless wherever they choose to practice medicine in Pakistan or abroad.
