Level of Job Security for Medical Students at AMC

By -

I overhear two aunties discussing AMC in these words: “Oh so your child is a MC Cadet; so he must be getting a salary from the start…That’s a nice thing”.

“My neighbor daughter is a PC cadet, she tells that she has to serve in the army for 3 years at least after she pass out… Isn’t that secure enough for a girl to do a job of a doctor and still be respected and duly paid?”

So what comes in our minds when we first talk of AMC…obviously how hard to get admission after competing thousands of students for few seats…..? Second that how much job security and study security we get from the institution…. Along with the fame, we can easily complete our 5 year study of MBBS or 4 years BDS in exact time…not a month more or less…. Next the MC Cadets gets to serve in the army directly which are almost the 40% of every class…… Leaving behind the 60% which can obviously get into army any time after completing their studies…whenever they wish…..

The PCs are now mandatory to serve in army for 3 years after which if they want to they can always quit….. But after 3 years you get so used to the norms of the army thing that you won’t be, in most cases, leaving army at all…. So again job secured there for the PCs lot….

If somehow you are not so fascinated by the charms of army uniform and its salutes, respect etc…. You get a degree with two most prestigious stamps on it: NUST and ARMY MEDICAL COLLEGE

You show that to any hospital in Pakistan and you are sure to get a dignified job……When nothing works your own parent institution comes to rescue and you can always get inducted into army as an army doctor…..

That’s the kind of job security every parent and every individual aspiring for AMC look towards by the end of their study span at AMC……
