How to Join Army Medical College
To Join Army Medical College And CMH Lahore Medical College
1. Medical Cadet Course
1 A. For Boys
The most famous way for boys to join Army Medical College and CMH Lahore Medical College is through Medical Cadet Course. This is a Regular Commission for boys in the Pakistan army. This course is for F.Sc Pre-medical boys, not for girls.
The selection procedure for Medical Cadet Course is same as that of the PMA Long Course. There will be preliminary tests including Written/Intelligence/Personality. After clearing this first test, there will be physical tests and initial medical test. The shortlisted candidates will receive an ISSB interview letter.
The selection procedure for getting admission in AM College’s MBBS and BDS will be
Preliminary Tests+Physical Tests+Initial Medical Tests+ISSB Interview = Selection
But the selection procedure for CMH Lahore Medical College’s MBBS (BDS is not included) will be slightly different
Preliminary Tests+Physical Tests+Initial Medical Tests+ISSB Interview+UHS Test = Selection
Yes, If you want to do MBBS and BDS from CMH Lahore Medical College, then you have to take UHS test but for AM College there is no need of UHS test.
On becoming successful, GHQ will issue you the call letter which you will receive at your home. You will be paid 30000 PKR per month by GHQ throughout your 5 years of MBBS or 4 years of BDS. During your stay in college, you will wear Khaki uniform and will be called as Cadet. After this, there will be 6-month training at PMA Kakul. On successful completion of training, you will be awarded the rank of Captain and you will serve in Army Medical Corps for at least 13 years. This period of 13-year is your bond with the army.
For 2016, its online registration was from 20 June to 13 July.
The girls are not admitted in the army through the above method. Up to 2012, the girls used to join AMC and CMH through Medical Cadet Course.This method used to require the 13 year bond for girls with Pak army. As Pakistani girls have large family responsibilities on their shoulders besides this army doctor job, so army decided to stop girls’ enrollment through this method. The girls were paid 30000 PKR per month by GHQ from this method of enrollment.

2. Through NUMS Test
Up to 2015, the civilian girls and boys (including army brat) were inducted into both AMC Rawalpindi and CMH Lahore Medical College through NUST entrance test. But at the end of 2015, both of these colleges released themselves from NUST and now they come under the National University of Medical Sciences (NUMS). From 2016 onward, the admissions will be held in both these colleges through the NUMS entry test. The NUMS test will be conducted twice in the year. NUMS will conduct this test through NTS. Once in August and other will be in September. You can apply for both tests. Best score will be considered for merit.
There is also no height criteria for boys and girls for getting admission in AM College through NUMS entrance test.
Now, Don’t write Army Medical College NUST. Write NUMS instead of NUST. The Army Medical College Rawalpindi website is no longer activated and it is taken down from NUST website. If you want to visit, then go to the NUMS official website. The Pak army medical college is located in Rawalpindi on Abid Majeed road. Remember, there are no branches of Army Medical College in Pakistan. A lot of people write army medical college Multan/Quetta/ Wah Cantt/Lahore. These are not the real names of these colleges. The real names are
1. CMH Multan Institute of Medical Sciences, Multan
2. Quetta Institute of Medical Sciences, Quetta
3. WAH Medical College, Wah Cantt
4. CMH Lahore Medical College, Lahore
Remember, NUMS test is valid for all these 5 colleges.
