TMSS came into existence for the wellbeing of unprivileged, discriminated, neglected, exploited and oppressed people. Medical facility is the most important one among the basic human needs. Access to good medical treatment by the neglected and unprivileged people has become dearth now. TMSS had long felt the need of adding a Medical College to the many educational and social welfare institutions through which, over the years it has served the country. TMSS Medical College (TMC) has been established in the year 2008 as a constituent program of TMSS to build a strong health service provider.
Despite three decade’s continuous endeavors of thousands of renowned NGOs for the country’s grassroots level comprehensive development, the achievement of the NGOs appeared to many of the Economist as truffle and negligible because lack of backward & forward linkage and scope. TMSS is non-profit organization and the philosophy of this organization is philanthropic.
In order to address the problems in achieving the aim of TMSS and to solidify the main philosophy, the noble commitment which TMSS made to contribute its efforts in Health Sector through establishment and operation of three Medical Technology Institutes, one Nursing College, Three Medical Assistant Training School, two Community Paramedic Institutes, One Ayurvedic Unani Medical College & Hospital and TMSS Medical College which are approved by the Government. Because of this we are expressing our gratitude to the Government and thankfulness to the Almighty Allah.
Education is the most important component for the development of the human being-the best among the entire creation. In the present time many have considered Education as business where TMSS is the exception. Keeping the fluency and sustainability of education the all-out encleavours of TMSS is mainly concerned only to the enhancement of quality & standard of education. This will refrain the entrepreneurs from personal economic gains, rather the money could be used for the procurement of educational materials, building-up student and Teachers satisfaction. The satisfaction of service provider ensures achievement of quality and standard of service. Job satisfaction is also favorable for institutional sustainability.
