Kabul Medical University  

Posted by Assad Abbas

Kabul Medical University is a governmental and autonomic university which provides an optimum, advanced, comprehensive, timely and free medical education.
Formerly known as (Kabul Medical Faculty), it was established in 1932 and was initially maintained by collaboration with two foreign governments, the Turkish and French sponsors. Both cooperators provided KMF with their own body of professionals and study materials, and a sustainable educational system. The Turkish partnership lasted for about 14 years and was followed by the French. After the French took leave, the administration was passed to Afghans themselves as MD Anwari historically took his seat as the first afghan KMF president. His era was a head start to the concomitant development of KMF as every youth in the country stepped up by having ambitions towards the development of their country.
KMF developed into a single self-autonomic University in 2005. It is currently viewed as the imperative institution in the country graduating professionals in fields of Curative, Pediatric, Stomatology and Nursing.
Kabul Medical University is being enrolled for by at least 2700 students and novices. Due to the fact of the rush by graduates across the country aspiring for medical field, each year; it is bound to accept only 30 to 40 newcomers for each of its four divisions.

Formerly known as (Kabul Medical Faculty), it was established in 1932 and was initially maintained by collaboration with two foreign governments, the Turkish and French sponsors. Both cooperators provided KMF with their own body of professionals and study materials, and a sustainable educational system. The Turkish partnership lasted for about 14 years and was followed by the French. After the French took leave, the administration was passed to Afghans themselves as MD Anwari historically took his seat as the first afghan KMF president. His era was a head start to the concomitant development of KMF as every youth in the country stepped up by having ambitions towards the development of their country. KMF developed into a single self-autonomic University in 2005.
