Originating from Budhni, a village located 10 kilometers east of Peshawar, Professor Dr. Muhammad Rehman received his education at the renowned Islamia College Peshawar. In 1967, he obtained his MBBS degree from Khyber Medical College in Peshawar. In 1975, he completed his fellowship in Cardiac Surgery at The Royal College of Edinburgh.

He served as a Cardiac Surgeon at the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) in Karachi for 28 years, ultimately retiring as a Professor.

Despite his long tenure of 28 years, Dr. Rehman felt unfulfilled and driven to continue serving others. In fulfilling this desire, he was able to realize a lifelong dream of giving back to the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, his place of birth.

The manifestation of Dr. Rehman's desire to give back took the form of the Rehman Medical Institute (RMI), which was established with the goal of providing high-quality healthcare services to the region, as well as creating employment opportunities for numerous families.

The foundation of RMI was laid during Dr. Rehman's professional practice in 1991. In early 2002, Dr. Rehman returned to his hometown of Peshawar to devote the remainder of his career to serving those in need through the establishment of RMI.
