Lahore Medical & Dental College (LM&DC) is a relatively new college and hasn't had that many classes graduate but the facilities are relatively nice and they have quite a large campus. They're recognized by the PM&DC and the WHO/FAIMER which is the most important thing for someone who is planning on returning to their home country after graduation.
As far as government colleges in Lahore go, there are three: King Edward, Allama Iqbal and Fatima Jinnah. The latter is for girls only. King Edward and Allama Iqbal are top-notch institutions in the public sector and usually the most sought after places to be admitted to out of all of the Punjab government schools.
There has also been a long established concept that Pakistani government colleges are far superior than private medical colleges however I feel that trend has started to change. Some of the private colleges around now are equally comparable or better than some of the government run colleges.
Well, just my two cents...#laughSeptember 22nd, 2006, 04:00 PM #225September 22nd, 2006, 08:08 PM #226
I'm pretty sure that private collges are just as good as govt but its just a concept that pakistanis have that govt colleges are better...lke when I talk to my cousins in Pakistan they always say that attending a private college is lke buying ur degree but i know thats not true its just as hard! My cousin attends Fatima Memorial and she says that its considered one of the best med colleges in pakistan " im pretty sure thats not true" but basically everyone has there own point of view...honestly im willing to go to any med college in LAHORE wether private or govt it really dose not matter to me.September 24th, 2006, 11:32 PM #227

All rite time for some of my "umreekee" boy questions. For the med. colleges in Lahore, do you guys know what the areas are like? I've heard that KE is located in downtown Lahore, and it's comparatively...how should I put this..."less clean" than other areas like where AI and Fatima Memorial are located. I'm just using Lahore as an example, but what would be the priv. and gov. colleges (all over Pak.) you guys would recommend that would be easier to adapt to? Also, I'm expecting a "no" for this, but are there any colleges w/ACs in their classrooms...cuz I can imagine it must get extremely hot durin' the summer, esp. in Pakistan (plz don't laugh at me for askin' that question haha !) ?September 25th, 2006, 05:05 AM #228
I haven't been to many of the other med schools in Pakistan, but as far as Shifa goes, they have AC's everywhere, and Islamabad itself is considered to be one of the cleanest places in Pakistan, if not the cleanest major city by far. It's the city most easily bearable by foreigners.September 27th, 2006, 09:36 PM #229
yes... u'r rite... K.E iz near the Anarkali Bazaar... n the whole area iz like.... impossible for u foreigners to live in.... HEY EVEN IF I MIRACULOUSLY GET MY ENTRY SCORES FUR K.E... I STILL WONT GO THERE.... the hostels r like.... just abt to fall apart... the buildings decades old...a crapped up campus...with no ACs...n the fans too high to blow away the heat....
Allama Iqbal has got a great campus... with large grounds...nice classrooms....the whole place iz really gud located in the mid of lahore....
n then.. therz Lahore Medical College... its a small place...but the building is entirely new... air-conditioned.... n its architechture, awesome! just one big sports ground... n the long campus buidng....but it is located in the north of lahore... one hour drive from central lahore

question about pak. med schools
Hi everyone first of all let me start by telling you about me, I?m currently a freshmen in a U.S. university, I want to transfer to Pakistan after my first year and I was hoping that someone could answer a few questions for me, since the schools themselves are hard to get any answers from. First of all what is the minimum SAT 1 score required to get into Aga Khan? Also I know that Aga Khan is at the top of the list but how do DMC and Baqai compare? I?m sure I will have more questions but these are it for now. Thanks.October 2nd, 2006, 09:39 AM #234
hey I just wanted to know if anyone here is going to aga khan? and how much of a difference it was from schools back in the statesOctober 2nd, 2006, 03:02 PM #235
For Aga Khan, the minimum SAT 1 score is a 1250 (must be less than two years old)
I don't know much about DMC or Baqai, but I have a few friends who went to Baqai and they're now working in the states doing their residency. It won't matter much to the places you apply for a residency which school you graduate from in Pakistan (if you plan on working in the US again). A foreign medical school is a foreign medical school to them.
How different are schools in Pakistan from the US? Completely different.
Ask us a few specific things that you might be interested in as far as the differences so that we'll know where to start.October 2nd, 2006, 07:58 PM #236
SO how about a bit on the social scene in Pakistani medical colleges...how r the typical Pakistani people it Med colleges???? or do you all just try to stick to Foreigners..hmmm when I went to Pakistan this time people were very cool/chilled out which is somthing I really liked...I mean they were as American as me! I don't know I had sooooo much fun when I went to Pakistan this time but everybodys lke its totally diff when u live there and the good thing for me is that I will only have to stay in a hostel for about a year then hopefully my mom is planning on moving to Pakistan too!October 2nd, 2006, 09:22 PM #237
It tends to vary depending on which city you go to med school in. People in Karachi and Lahore are very different than those from Islamabad or Peshawar. People are generally different than what you're probably used to in the US, but if you're born in Pakistan and then raised in the US, you usually have no trouble fitting in. In fact, no one really has any trouble fitting in, because obviously, everyone speaks english.
Foreigners tend to hang out together but also mix well with local Pakistanis. No matter where you go the place and its people are what you make of it. Also, no matter where you go you'll find both good and bad people. Sometimes they'll be foreigners, other times they'll be locals. No real set-in -stone way of distinguishing the two, besides origin I guess.October 4th, 2006, 05:49 AM #238
