Dow Medical College Inauguration 1945

Sohail Ansari There was a long standing medical school in Hyderabad. In 1930’s reforms were brought in to health and medical education. The school in Hyderabad gave a diploma level licensure; those taking course needed only matriculation for the course. There was a need of properly educated/trained doctors. The Indian Medical Council asked for an upgrade. That saw the school being upgraded and bought to Karachi. The medical college was initially housed in the NJV School. Hugh Dow happened to be the Governor at that time and thus the college was named after him
