Army Medical College was established in 1977 as a residential institution for selected cadets to obtain undergraduate medical education. The Pakistani army had previously commissioned graduates of civilian medical colleges; these medical personnel were usually conscripted on an emergency basis and did not remain in the army.

In 1976, the Government of Pakistan decided to establish the Army Medical College (AMC). The College accepted students into the first MBBS course in 1977.
