Department of Gynaecology
Gynae department was initially started in 1975 for teaching and training of undergraduate students of Khyber Medical College. With time it has evolved into training and teaching institute for post graduate students of College Of Physician and Surgeon Pakistan. At the moment we have three administrative units led by visionary Professors. Each unit has dedicated faculty, trainees and staff who are striving towards excellence.
Our main focus is to provide compassionate, evidence based care at every stage of woman life. To provide primary preventive care as well as advanced obstetric and gynecological interventions.
Recently we have assigned sub specialties to each unit so that patient care keeps pace with international standard. These include
Pelvic floor disorders
Maternal fetal medicine
General obstetrics and Gynaecology.
We are also responsible for teaching and training of medical students throughout the five years of our undergraduate curriculum and ensure that they not only high-quality education and training, but also learn ethics, empathy, teamwork, professionalism and integrity. We teach while we work to create a new generation of health care providers trained in woman-centered care. Our practice reflects our values of excellence, compassion, community and social justice.
Our post graduate training provides broad range of experience in comprehensive women health and in depth focused concentration in the sub-specialties
In addition to teaching and patient care, department is working hard to improve the research standards.
Department has three Professors, two Associate Professors and eight Assistant Professors.
Department has over all admissions of nearly 60 thousand per year with most of the patient being admitted through emergency. Department deals with the patients ranging from simple normal delivery to most complicated handled cases referred from periphery. It is a time of great change and challenge in our specialty as general Obstetrics and Gynaecology is evolving into subspecialties, open surgeries are evolving into minimally invasive surgeries. In health care the paradigm is shifting towards more patient friendly approach and Medical education is changing from teacher centered to student centered. We need to modify and upgrade our patient care, teaching and surgical skills radically to meet the demands of the new millennium
