Medical education is expensive. According to PMDC rules there has to be highly qualified and experienced teaching staff, other facilities and expensive equipments in different basis and clinical departments of a medical college. On the clinical side teaching hospital facilities are very costly. It is estimated that the cost of training a medical graduate in Govt. Medical college is over Rs. 9 million in five years in Pakistan. The same or similar training abroad costs about Ts. 20 million in the UK and still more in the USA. Whereas at AIMC it may cost about a tenth of international cost and less than about one fourth of the cost that Govt. incurs on training of a doctor in Pakistan.
The fee charged by the college barely covers the cost of teaching training programs. Instruments, equipment’s, material and chemicals and salaries are required in this process. As this college is functioning on self-finance basis, it is imperative that students admitted to the college pay the college dues in time. The college has to make arrangements and organise various teaching and training programs well in advance of the time when these facilities are required by students. These facilities are also inspected by the University students. These facilities are also inspected by the University and the PMDC teams regularly and have to be of the desired standard.
Abbottabad International Medical College is a self-financing institution; therefore, it has to charge a reasonable tuition fee. For those Pakistani students who are capable, have leadership qualities and are keen to pursue the medical profession and they fulfil the requirements of admission and are able to follow the rigorous academic requirements of, a highly scientific course, confessional fee have been fixed which are less than about a quarter of the actual cost of education in a Govt. medical colleges in Pakistan or in any recognized medical school abroad. AIMC fees are less than the fees charged by the Govt. Medical colleges from the paying students.
