King Edward Medical University was established in 1860. It is one of the oldest medical
institution in the South Asia, after Medical College Kolkata (1835) in India. Initially
known as Lahore Medical College in 1886. Both the college and the attached hospital
(Lahore Dispensary) were small compared to the current size.
The first academic building was completed in 1883. The university and the
attached hospital was built piece by piece by the funding and efforts of
several dedicated people in the coming years.
In December 21, 1911, Lahore Medical College was rechristened King Edward
Medical College, and was updated to the status of an independent, degree-granting
university on May 12, 2005.
