Vision of the Chancellor to develop human resources in Allied Health disciplines transformed into reality in April 2005 with the inception of Dow Institute of Medical Technology (DIMT) in 2006 under the auspicious and dynamic guidance of Late Dr. Syed Sarwat Hassan. The Institute is one of its kinds where Bachelor of Science in four different technologies namely: Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Respiratory and Critical Care Technology, Surgical Technology and Clinical Ophthalmology Technology were started simultaneously. Later on programs for Occupational Therapy, Dental Hygiene and Dental Care Professional were introduced; which was followed by a B.S program in Perfusion Sciences. The latter three are being offered by their respective Institutes whereas, Perfusion Sciences along with the previous four is still being offered by Institute of Medical Technology.
