The department of general
medicine was established in 1986 atPiMS, when the
hospital was in its preliminary stages.For almost the
last 8 years the department of medicine has been
functionally divided into two separate units,Unit 1.
Headed by Professor Drjamal Zafar and unit 2, Headed
by Professor Dr. Rauf Niazi.
Unit 2 has also recently been
recognized by the CPSP for training in Endocrinology
and aims to evolve into a state of the art endocrine
department over the next 2 yrs.The department of
medicine unit 2 has 22 beds including a 4 bedded high
dependency area. We have a busy OPD (Thrice weekly),
catering to 250-350 patients daily , for the catchment
area including Islamabad and its vicinity ,KPK,
KASHMIR,and areas till southern Punjab. We also
provide emergency services to patients from all these
areas and have around 10-15 admissions in the ward on
a daily basis.
The department can boast of
having one of the best faculties which is devoted and
committed to providing patient care and simultaneously
imparting quality postgraduate training. There is a
structured teaching program which revolves around
lectures,presentations, journal clubs, mortality
meetings, research and regular evaluation of trainees.
The department offers training
for FCPS Medicine,MD Medicine, MRCP (UK), and has thus
far produced more than 150 post graduates who continue
to offer their sound services both overseas and to
homeland itself. In addition we also train
subspecialists for the first 18 months before they
pursue CARDIOLOGY,NEUROLOGY, GASTROENTEROLOGY,
PULMONOLOGY, DERMATOLOGY and other specialties.
The department has been
recognized by CPSP for the training of ENDOCRINOLOGY
and has already gone ahead with the selection of
trainees for the FCPS Endocrinology program. We are
hoping to evolve into a separate department of
endocrinology within the next 2 years offering both
FCPS and MD programs.
Over the last 8 years the
department has contributed towards health care, health
professional training and providing social services
and support to our patients and inshallah will
continue to do so.
