Three-day 46th annual medical symposium of Jinnah Post-Graduate Medical Centre Karachi

Karachi:The three-day 46th annual medical symposium of the Jinnah Post-Graduate Medical Centre (JPMC) concluded on Wednesday recommending the budget of JPMC to be brought at par with that of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Islamabad.

The symposium committee and academic council observed that PIMS was taking care of only a third of the patients that the JPMC was where about a million patients attended the out-patient clinic while 55000 patients were admitted for treatment annually.

The JPMC being a pioneer Post-Graduate Medical Centre, had facilities not less than those of a university and had been accredited by the Higher Education Commission for

upgradation as the Jinnah University of Health Sciences. Given this the committee recommended to maintain the status of M. Phil degree issued by basic medical sciences institution like in the past, avoiding any kind of downgrading of the institution.

The committee also recommended upgrading the existing positions of staff and creating new posts of medical and paramedical staff as the trained permanent human resource was the major problem of every unit of the JPMC.

It was also recommended that the practice of public-private partnership be encouraged but there was, the symposium stressed, a need to make it more transparent, structured, and organised with a defined uniform framework.

Earlier, Prof Tariq Rafi thanked the Honorable Federal Minister of Health for increasing the budget for the symposium from 200,000 to 500,000 and requested the Ministry to enhance the minimum budget to Rs800,000 for next years symposium. More than 200 papers were presented on the concluding day of the symposium.

Professor Shiasta Khan, Dr Subeen Mujeeb, Dr Khalid Rashid, Dr Nausheen Ahmed and Dr Shahina Qayyum also spoke.
