Quest for excellence in the field of medicine and research
PREFACEKeeping in view the enhanced specialized health care needs of the province and the severe shortage of specialists to meet those needs, the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa decided to establish a separate and independent postgraduate Medical institute at Lady Reading Hospital. Peshawar in 1984 with the following objectives:- A. To prepare and train postgraduate doctors towards attaining higher postgraduate qualifications enabling them to provide high quality specialist care to the people of the province at district and sub district level. B. To establish a provincial center of excellence which could offer the highest quality tertiary health care services to the people of the province. C. To promote research in all fields of health in the province. The staff of Postgraduate Medical Institute accepted this challenging task with firm determination and total commitment. Despite major obstacles including lack of adequate infrastructure, manpower and equipment, the staff and students of Postgraduate Medical Institute worked extremely hard and converted the dream of Postgraduate Medical Institute in the province into a reality. The institute now stands recognized as a premier teaching and training institute by P.M.D.C, College of Physicians & Surgeon of Pakistan, Khyber Medical University, Peshawar and the Royal Colleges of UK and Ireland. The institute celebrated its 25 year of existence in 2009. Chief Executive Officer and staff of Postgraduate Medical Institute can rightly claim that Postgraduate Medical Institute has not only served the health needs of the province as major human resource development (HRD) center. PGMI has also succeeded in introducing a culture of research among the faculty as well as the postgraduate students. Such research is now regularly published in a respectable Journal of Postgraduate Medical Institute (JPMI) and in many other national and international medical journals. PGMI is the only institute of its kind in the country which inducts, monitors, pay and certifies every single postgraduate trainee in the entire province in recognized Postgraduate training institutes. We hope and pray that the next ten years will witness further major successful strides towards achieving the goals of postgraduate medical education. The revision and updating of this important document was made possible because of the long hours and dedicated work by the prospectus committee which comprised of Professor Liaqat Ali,Dr. Shaheen Afridi (HRD) and Dr. Abid Jameel (Secretary). On behalf of the teaching staff and students, I would like to thank them all for their time and devotion.
