It is the fact that no institution or department can work efficiently and optimally until and unless its superiors and managers directly take an active and avid interest in its proper administration. Obviously, Bacha Khan Medical & Dental College is no exception to this rule. We are indeed fortunate to have the supervision of the present principal & Project Director Bacha Khan Medical & dental College Mardan, Prof. Dr. Zia ul Islam, just such administrator. He is also an educationist and academician to the core and has taken upon his shoulders the daunting task of improving the Bacha Khan Medical and Dental College and bringing them up to par with the requirements and standard of modern day in this age of information technology.
Bacha Khan Medical & Dental College Library was established in November 2009, when the college started functioning. The college spends a lot of money on provision of latest medical books and journals. Therefore, a very well stocked, spacious and fully air conditioned library exists in the College. The collection includes over 8000 books, 500 CDs and 11 regularly subscribed Medical Journals.
In addition there are books on Islamic literature. Latest foreign editions of commonly used books’ are available in sufficient numbers; the reference section of the library is most up-to-date. Special collections included the medical books, a good number of books of General `Knowledge, Religion and Medical Journals.
There is a large student’s study area, where at a time 50 students can sit and study reference materials in the library. A separate enclave is provided for the teaching staff. It is run under the supervision of Principal of the college. The experience and hard working of Syed Muhammad Yousaf made this library very impressive.
