Message From Director Medical Education

Shifa International PGME department aims to provide training of the highest quality, to lead to the emergence of a qualified academic professional who comes up to the highest professional standards of his/her chosen specialty and at the same time has developed into a humane, communicative and practical individual. The stress is on the acquisition not only of medical skills and knowledge but equally so on the development of professionalism, a scientifically rigorous mind and the skills of managing one's professional life.
The presence and continuous improvement of the physical infrastructure of the Hospital, translates into the availability of most of the investigative, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment needed for the practice of modern medicine. Shifa International Hospital has state-of-the-art equipment for most of the specialties and indeed, some of the facilities available here are the only ones in the country. The laboratories of the Hospital have become the national benchmark in their field.
There is no doubting the excellence of individual teachers and though individuals make a difference , PGME requires that all programmes meet the same standards. This is only possible if there is a system in place that ensures the desired outcomes.

The PGME department, works to ensure that our system of post-graduate medical education establishes internationally acceptable criteria, meets all the requirements of the PMDC and College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan, establishes clearly stated goals, puts in place plans of teaching with a clearly stated syllabus and regularly monitors itself ensuring transparency in all aspects and continuous professional development.
 It is through the rigorous application of this process that Shifa programmes achieve excellence and continue to improve themselves.

The office of Postgraduate Medical Education and Training is responsible for:
•      Overseeing the administration of all Residency Training Programs at Shifa International Hospital Islamabad.
•     Liaising with other internal groups and external organizations regarding Postgraduate Medical Education.
