Introduction:

Khyber Medical College (KMC) is the flagship institution of Khyber Medical University in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. With its rich history of academic excellence and co-curricular as well as extra-curricular achievements, it stands tall as the mother institute of medicine in the province. The many thousands of fortunate students who have graduated from KMC are spread out all across the world, holding prestigious jobs, and are living examples of the grandeur of this institution and its extraordinary standards.

We, at KMC, promote co-curricular activities with great fervor and, acknowledge their important role in character development.
