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

DGO, FCPS, MPHE.
It gives me immense pleasure and pride to write for the gynecology department, where I received my undergraduate and post graduate training. I am working in this department since the last three decades in different capacities.
My aim and goal is to encourage my department to provide latest evidence based care to the patient and implement recent guidelines. My special interest in patient care is to implement protocols and innovative heath care solutions especially developed for low resource countries. Health is holistic we cannot separate the patient from the disease, especially in case of the underprivileged female gender of this part of the world, for which we need a very empathetic approach to their medical and social problems.
I also endeavor to develop comprehensive training of next generation of health care providers.
As a medical educationist my interest is student teaching and patient care in the unique cultural context of our geographical area. The impact of our culture on students learning and cultural border crossing needed to assimilate western medical education in eastern context, and western medical treatment approach for sub-continental females.
