Principal CIMS Bahawalpur

It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome the M.B.B.S. students to CMH Institute of Medical Sciences (CIMS), Bahawalpur.

The essence of medical education is not mere acquisition of knowledge about human body, its normal functioning, the ailments it undergoes and their alleviation. It is actually much more than that. It engenders human values of morality and ethics which transform medical graduates into highly skilled professionals and honest caring human beings.

CMH Institute of Medical Sciences Bahawalpur has spacious college blocks, thus providing ample space to all the basic departments for lecture halls, tutorial rooms, laboratories, museums, learning resource center and offices. CIMS can boast of its highly qualified, trained and devoted faculty. Experience blended with innovative and motivated youth will be an asset for this institution in contributing to professional development and skillful learning.

Combined Military Hospital (CMH), the affiliate hospital of CIMS, is a 500-bedded, fully-equipped facility located in the Garrison of Bahawalpur. It has a large turn over of patients in both medical and surgical specialties and sub specialties which are headed and manned by exceptionally trained and experienced Specialists. The hospital has a state of the art Burns Unit, Rehabilitation Medicine department and Neonatal ICU, a rarity in the whole southern region. This hospital will not only cater for a large population, but will adequately and efficiently fulfil the training requirements of the medical students.

It is my firm belief and commitment that this Institute will be a landmark and prestigious professional institution lauded for its lofty ideals and winning laurels for the Pakistan Army and our beloved Pakistan
