Demographic imbalance in the industrialized developed countries has resulted into disproportionate number of older population. At the same time, developing countries have been experiencing overpopulation with greater number of young population. Both demographic extremes have posed unprecedented global health challenges.

Furthermore, unexpected rapid climate change and ecological imbalances have elevated the risk of natural disasters, water scarcity, food scarcity and other issues which have further increased the global burden of disease. Hence, both developed and developing countries have to urgently revamp their healthcare systems. As a result, there is a more and more demand of competent healthcare professionals to meet the emerging public health challenges.

University of the Punjab is fully cognizant of global challenges and requirements of health professionals. For this, University of the Punjab plans to establish a state-of-the-art medical college to cater to the health care needs of growing population.

Fortunately, University of the Punjab has the most developed and richest scientific and laboratory infra-structure and highly developed departments such as College of Pharmacy, Institute of Bio-Chemistry and Bio-Technology, Department of Public Health and Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics.

These institutions have decades of experience and are recognized to be the premier institutions in Pakistan. It is high time that University of the Punjab establish its medical college and hospital to assume a leadership role in the medical education in Pakistan. Present University administration has vision and commitment to translate this idea into reality.
