Jinnah Medical and Dental College admitted its first batch of MBBS students in 1998 and its first batch of BDS students in 1999. Our first batch of doctors and dentists graduated in June 2003. The College is affiliated with JINNAH SINDH MEDICAL UNIVERSITY(JSMU) and recognized by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council. Graduates from JMDC are eligible to sit for foreign qualifying examinations such as USMLE (ECFMG) and PLAB.
The decision taken by the Trust to establish a new medical college was based on its desire to raise the standards of medical education in Pakistan. Conscious that a high level of professional competence has to be attained by medical students, the Trust planned a system of instruction in which the emphasis is on interactive, small group tutorials, problem-based and community-based learning, relevant to our particular culture.
As the world is shrinking rapidly, Jinnah Medical and Dental College students are encouraged to keep abreast of the latest developments in the medical sciences. Other vital aspects of education, too often ignored by medical educationists are emphasized to include communication skills, language skills and courses in humanities. As part of the curriculum, students will also be trained to write and speak effectively, giving them the confidence to pursue graduate studies and participate effectively in seminars and conferences at national and international levels. The College desires its’ students to develop leadership qualities and a team spirit.
Admission procedure is stringent. The aim is to ensure that students who graduate from Jinnah Medical and Dental College are competent, contributing members of society. They must acquire necessary health care and management skills and be effective communicators and decision makers. Jinnah Medical and Dental College focuses on developing values and sensitivities of a good practitioner producing graduates who are distinguishable from the rest.
The strategy for fulfilling this Mission is based on student-teacher interaction, community-based instruction, and further support in the form of a good library, audio-visual aids, skills laboratory, computer-assisted learning and an active humanities department.
