It provides training to future leaders in patient care and provides modern health care facilities to the people of Peshawar. College buildings added during 1960 to 1980 were designed by Pakistani Architect A. R. Hye.The college was founded in 1954 by Mr. Ghulam Muhammad, Governor General of Pakistan, with the vision to create a center of excellence in medical training, health care and biomedical research. Since then it has expanded steadily to meet the growing health care needs of the ever expanding Peshawar city. To provide dental health facilities to the people of Peshawar, a dentistry department was founded in 1964 which is now called Khyber College of Dentistry. The college has a distinguished faculty of more than 1200 full-time teachers and researchers in 26 research-oriented basic and clinical academic departments. More than 8000 graduates call Khyber Medical College their alma mater. Around 1000 medical students are enrolled in the college in any given year.
