    5/5, 5 out of 5, reviewed Dec 31, 2015
    Class Size:
    251 - 300 Students
    Quality of life:
    Clinical Experience:
    • + The College and the Hospital are huge. A lot of planning went into making it. There is a lot of green. It's one of the most beautiful college in Pakistan. Most of the professors are friendly in the basic sciences department. The clinical side, everyone is an excellent doctor. Particularly, their theoretical knowledge is great. Students are very friendly. The college is famous for its Medicine specialty.
    • - The biggest drawback of the college is its location. Multan is one of the hottest places in Pakistan. ACs are not allowed in the student hostels. Students are allowed Water Air Coolers, which will get you through the summer but no as good as an AC. The heat outside is unbearable. Administration are helpful but can be quiet a headache dealing with them. Professors on clinical side are great but, have huge egos. Dealing with them is also going to be a headache.
    Foreign students come from, Somalia, Palestine, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Eithopia, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan.

    The class size is huge, but doesn't affect learning if you are keen to learn. In clinical years (3rd, 4th, and Final Year) the class is split into batches. Each batch has 20-30 students.

    Overall, Nishtar is a great college. Pakistan first medical college that the Pakistani government commissioned. A lot of planning went into making the college and the hospital. The hospital is huge, capacity of 1800 beds. Medicine and Surgical wards are always over capacity. There are tremendous learning opportunities as a student and as an intern. The hospital is famous for its Medicine specialty. Surgery is in my opinion not that great.
