Born into a modest family in Roorkee, Uttarakhand, Dr. Aslam Khan, the youngest of three brothers, harbored a strong desire for knowledge from an early age. Tragically, he lost his mother to a chronic illness, igniting within him a passion to create a world free from diseases. Driven by a deep-rooted purpose to serve society, he embarked on a journey to pursue Ayurveda for M.D. (Indo) and MD (Ayur), later realizing that the education sector held the key to upliftment and progress. This realization led him to establish the National Medical Community College (NMC), a testament to his unwavering commitment to education and holistic well-being.

Through his college and various social and spiritual causes, Dr. Aslam Khan strives to create a society where efficient and compassionate healthcare professionals contribute to the betterment of the nation.
