Students need to be prepared to bring new life into the world, regardless of their specialty. The obstetric team handles antenatal and gynecological cases, including normal deliveries and caesarean section. It also handles all obstetric and gynecological emergencies round the clock. Standing alongside a full-fledged team comprising of a duty obstetrician, a junior resident and well-trained staff nurses, students gain flair in taking care of deliveries including caesarean sections and other emergencies.
Faculty members are trained and highly motivated. They specialize in managing high-risk pregnancies, sonology, endoscopic surgeries, laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. They continuously update themselves by participating in national conferences and presenting scientific papers.
The undergraduate program imparts medical students with a base in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. The curriculum has a fine balance of lecture classes, clinical case demonstrations, discussions, tutorials and practical classes.
Regular camps are conducted in surrounding villages along with the Community Medicine Department to provide good antenatal care and to screen for high-risk pregnancies and cancer which is manifesting as a better maternal and fetal outcome. This is highly appreciable considering the maternal mortality rate of Pakistan especially in the rural areas.
Faculty members never miss an opportunity to submit scientific papers, on the research that is being done, at national level conferences.
Students can look forward to new equipment and procedures that the department is incorporating, such as:
- Thermo choice for the treatment of dysfunctional uterine bleeding
- Uterine artery embolization for the treatment of fibroid uterus
- Intra-uterine insemination and in-vitro fertilization for the treatment of infertility
- Resectoscope for operative hysteroscopy
