Professor Dr. Zia-Ul-Islam was the founder Principal of Khyber Girls Medical College Peshawar. He managed the academic and administrative problems related to this new born institution with extreme dedication and excellence. He was followed by a person equally worthy for his abilities named Prof Dr. Muhammad Zubair Khan who carried the success story of KGMC to further heights and was instrumental in the procurement of land and subsequent building of Auditorium, Cafeteria, Postgraduate Medical Department and the hostels for girls students of KGMC. The present day Principal and Dean of the college is dynamic Professor Dr. Abid Hussain since 13th January 2013 and is crowned with holding the first ever successful convocation encompassing the four graduate batches of KGMC on February 20th 2014. Moreover, there has been an extensive administrative and academic re-shuffle which has put the KGMC in the list of one of the most successful medical colleges in Public Sector Medical Education in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in a short span of ten years. It is pertinent to note that KGMC is the only public sector medical college in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which has also been recognized by PM&DC for the Postgraduate studies in the Basic Medical Sciences.
