Bolan Medical Complex Hospital Quetta

After partition the country was deficient in trained manpower, especially in the medical field. To filled the gap in the short period of time the Government of Pakistan decided to start condensed medical courses & for that a series of medical schools were established in the country. Thus in 1952 Amin-ud-din medical school was started in Balochistan. It worked for seven years & was closed as a matter of policy when it was felt that this category of doctors were no more required & instead it was decided that more medical colleges would be opened to train fully qualified doctors in the country at the level of MBBS & beyond . Earlier on the students from Balochistan would seek admission in the other colleges of the country & were facing great difficulty. After Balochistan got the status of separate province in 1970 the people of Balochistan started demanding a medical college of their own. In March 1971 it was agreed in principal that a medical college will be opened in Balochistan at Quetta.In 1972 , the Government of Pakistan acceding to the demand of the people of the province formally decided to set up a medical college at Quetta & agreed to run it as a federally funded project .Pending the construction of a new full-fledged hospital & college building , the classes were started in Sandeman Provincial Hospital Quetta & the building of a para-medical school was acquired for the college . The main building of the college & hospital (BMCH) have been completed & are fully functional . The laboratories of the basic department have been equipped with most modern equipment .Four hostels two for boys & two for girls & residence of teaching & ministerial staff, in reasonable number have been completed . At the moment there is accommodation for all the students .Twenty four batches of students numbering 2900 (approximately) have already qualified from here & the 25th batch is due to pass out. BDS classes were started in 1985 & now fully Function College is working & till date more than 100 BDS doctors have qualified. For updating the knowledge of the teachers & furtherance of medical science a research cell, as a branch of Pakistan Medical Research Council , is functioning since 1979 with the principal as its director . To make the medical education more meaning full community oriented medical education has been introduced in the college from last year . Plans are under way to introduce computer literacy classes , open a medical education department , establish a resource centre , a skills laboratory & upgrading the library to meet the new challenges of the time .
