Hailing from Budhni, a small village 10 km east of Peshawar, Prof. Dr. Muhammad Rehman studied from the famous Islamia College Peshawar and earned an MBBS degree from Khyber Medical College Peshawar in 1967. He did his fellowship in Cardiac Surgery from The Royal College of Edinburg in 1975. He served as Cardiac Surgeon at NICVD, Karachi for 28 years and retired there as Professor.
Dr. Rehman did not feel fulfilled even after serving for 28 years; therefore, he gave in to his urge for serving. It was his lifelong dream to present a gift to the people of KP, the province of his birth.
The gift came along in the shape of Rehman Medical Institute. Its sole purpose was to provide “quality healthcare services” to the people of the region and employment opportunity to hundreds of families. In 1991, during his practice, he laid the foundation of RMI. In early 2002, Dr. Rehman moved back to his hometown Peshawar, to devote the remaining part of his career to serving the ailing through Rehman Medical Institute.
