50 doctors to get degrees at first convocation of SZAB Medical University
Islamabad: Fifty doctors will be awarded terminal medical degrees by the Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto (SZAB) Medical University at its first convocation scheduled at the Pak-China Friendship Centre on August 13.

Talking to the media at the National Press Club here on Wednesday, the university's Vice Chancellor Professor Javed Akram said, gold medals will be awarded to postgraduate medical students in the specialties of basic medical sciences, gynaecology and obstetrics, surgery and allied paediatrics. The Chancellor's Gold Medal and the Vice Chancellor's Gold Medal will also be awarded on the occasion.

"SZAB Medical University is already holding talks with international universities in the UK, the US, Europe, Turkey, Japan and the Middle East for joint collaboration in the field of medicine and research to strengthen the base of medical education and elevate the standards of medical research in Pakistan," maintained Professor Akram.

The vice chancellor said that university is primarily focused on improving the healthcare system at PIMS, and with an internationally recognised medical faculty and best team of doctors in Pakistan, PIMS is performing a far better job in the public health sector if compared to any other hospital in Pakistan.

Responding to a query about the assistance being extended to the IDPs of Bannu, Professor Akram said, a medical mission of over 70 employees is still working at the Bannu field medical hospital established by SZAB Medical University and is actively participating in the army-led relief operation. He also shared a letter of appreciation of the services of SZAB Medical University, PIMS, written by the Pakistan Army unit currently stationed at Bannu.

The VC informed that Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industries President Dr. Shamail handed over a truckload of medicines and disposable hospital supplies to Minister of State for CAD Barrister Usman Ibrahim at a ceremony held at PIMS earlier in the day.

Professor Akram announced that SZAB Medical University, PIMS, will establish a dispensary for journalists at the National Press Club. It will be stocked with medicines within a month, he told the club's president. He also announced Health Journalists Award for health reporters of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

RMC to establish infectious diseases department
Rawalpindi: The Rawalpindi Medical College (RMC) administration claimed to have made all arrangements to establish a full-fledged infectious diseases-cum-dengue fever department during the current fiscal year.

At present, the allied hospitals are operating wards to cater to the needs of patients with infectious diseases, including dengue fever. None of the medical colleges, including RMC, is operating a full-fledged infectious diseases department, said RMC Principal Professor Dr. Muhammad Umar on Sunday.

He said the planned infectious diseases-cum-dengue fever department at RMC would be the first of its kind in the province and would be a model department.

Giving details of the scheme, he said the RMC proposed to the provincial government to establish a fully-equipped department for treatment of patients with infectious diseases which has been approved. "The provincial government has approved a budget of Rs70 million for the purpose."

The RMC principal said the proposed department would be established at Holy Family Hospital and the building being utilised for running dengue fever ward at present would be used for developing infectious diseases-cum-dengue fever department.

To a query, he said, the residents of Rawalpindi district faced a severe outbreak of dengue fever last year and during the spike the allied hospitals received well over 15,000 patients at the dengue fever counters.

Keeping the load of patients of infectious diseases last year in mind, "we proposed the government to establish a separate department so that the routine working of the allied hospitals would remain unaffected in case of an outbreak of any infectious disease, including dengue fever, he added.

He said the planned department at the HFH would operate diagnostic and treatment facilities on its own for the infectious diseases and would help in minimising the extraordinary burden of patients that the medicine departments at the allied hospitals face in case of outbreak of infectious diseases.

The planned department would have an 80-bed ward and operate its outpatient department like that of other departments at the RMC and allied hospitals, said Dr. Muhammad Umar.

To a query, he said, hopefully, the provincial government would release the allocated funds for the planned department till September this year enabling the RMC to start work on establishment of the infectious diseases department in October.

He said if the budget is released in September this year, work on the planned department would take six months or so. "We hope that the planned department would be operational till March next year," said the RMC principal.

He said the RMC and allied hospitals have already established a system for screening of patients for dengue fever and the same system would be adopted by the planned department in a more systematic way. The news
