Vice Chancellors Message

Vice Chancellor
Vice Chancellor
I have joined Khyber Medical University (KMU) at an exciting and indeed a challenging time, where the university finds itself at the cross roads of its embryonic development and being a driver of societal change. Leading a university is an intellectually rewarding venture, but one that is far from easy. It requires a certain equipoise between efficient management and the recognition and enhancement of intellectual freedom and creativity. KMU was brought into existence with the very idea that it will assume a stewardship role for health education and research in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and through the work of my predecessors, KMU has been able to launch multiple academic programs to fulfill that role.[4]  Vice Chancellor's Message
