The idea of establishing a medical teaching institution in Multan was first forwarded by Dr. M. J. Bhutta in 1945. At that time, there was only one medical college in Punjab, that is, the King Edward Medical College in Lahore.The Muslim students ratio in the college was very low. After the formation of Pakistan on the 14th of August, 1947, Muslim doctors migrated to Pakistan, but their number was very little. This created a vacuum in the availability of medical doctors in the newly formed Muslim state. On this background, Dr. Mohammed Jamaal Bhutta and Dr. Col. Mallick were of the view that Punjab would require a second medical college on priority basis to meet the needs of the province in near future. So, Government of the Punjab took this situation very seriously. And soon,Sardar Abdul Rab Nishtar, the then Governor Punjab, made a historical announcement of establishing a modern medical college and hospital in Multan. [1] NIshtar Hospital History
