PMC TO PROMOTE MEDICAL EDUCATION: The Peshawar Medical College will continue promoting medical education in the province to ensure better research on diseases and provision of effective healthcare to the people, said Professor Najibul Haq, dean of the college’s medicine faculty, on Wednesday.
Professor Haq told Dawn that his educational institution had the highest pass rate in postgraduate examinations due to excellent practical training by highly-skilled faculty members.
“Around 40 per cent of our students have passed the first step of postgraduate examinations. Of them, 35 per cent passed FCPS-I in various subjects and underwent training in different institutions of the country, including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,” he said.
Professor Haq said the PMC graduates got postgraduate training at the Mercy Hospital, Kuwait Teaching Hospital and other major hospitals of Peshawar under the supervision of senior consultants, enabling them to become specialists, while many pursued specialisation abroad.

“The PMC accords top priority to postgraduate training of doctors. The training enables doctors to pass the FCPS examinations in different medical disciplines,” he said.
Professor Haq said the college was trying its level best to scale up standard of medical education and improve patient care.
