Quaid-a-Azam Postgraduate Medical College to initiate four new programmes

Islamabad: The Quaid-a-Azam Postgraduate Medical College (QPMC) of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) will be initiating four new programmes to produce specialists in various fields including trauma.

These programmes are Masters in Accident and Emergency, and MD in Critical Medicine, Rheumatology and Blood Transfusion Medicine.

"The prevailing situation of terrorism in Pakistan makes it mandatory for more and more doctors who are specialists in the field of trauma to be inducted in public and private hospitals of Pakistan," the Dean of the Quaid-e-Azam Postgraduate Medical College Professor Mumtaz Hassan commented here on Thursday. He said "This is the first time that Masters in Emergency is being introduced in Pakistan."

PIMS receives many disaster victims, most of them requiring emergency surgeries, intensive care and blood transfusions. "The initiation of these new programmes will facilitate better management of disasters," Dr. Mumtaz said. He commented that PIMS has always been in the forefront of disasters. "Our faculty earned recognition nationally and internationally for managing the earthquake disaster in the country's Northern Areas," he recollected. There are seven Intensive Care Units in PIMS.

The Quaid-e-Azam Postgraduate Medical College has many specialties; it has produced 662 specialists to date. Appreciating the role of postgraduate residents in PIMS, Professor Mumtaz said, they are practically running the institution.

"Most of our trained specialists are now serving in different institutions at home and abroad," he mentioned. The News
