Sahiwal is an old district of Punjab, whose economy is agricultural and famous for its educational institutions. Realizing the need for a medical college in the area, Sahiwal Medical College was established in 2010. The foundation stone of Sahiwal Medical College was laid in November 2010. The Punjab government has allotted 62 acres of land for the college near Central Jail Sahiwal, where the campus is in the final stages of furniture/completion at a cost of Rs. 1 billion. MBBS classes started at DHQ Hospital Sahiwal Para Medical School but moved to the new campus in December 2014.
Sahiwal Medical College (SLMC) aims to prepare its students to become leaders. The goal is not to become a “doctor” but to become a “medical scholar” who seeks knowledge and service. Studying at Sahiwal Medical College (SLMC) is a great opportunity as it brings its students closer to the current scientific knowledge and motivates them towards the medical profession. At the same time, SLMC helps students progress academically, socially, and professionally.
A new DHQ hospital building is under construction. Upon completion, DHQ Teaching Hospital Sahiwal will be converted into a 1,158-bed hospital. The development of an alternative hospital on the new campus is about to begin.
