Addressing the Participants Prof. Mohammad Masroor said that the idea to introduce e-doctors program had been presented five years ago but it is actually started under the guidance of Prof. Saeed Quraishy. Today, the second stage of this program is in the process of completion, and the third stage is about to start soon. He further said, it has been observed that we have more than 65% of girls registered in medical education out of which, around 80% leaves the profession within one year after the completion of their house job; due to which there remains a vacant space in the healthcare system of the country. Dow University has made a successful effort to fill this void space through e-Doctor Facility. This program continues to train Pakistani lady doctors sitting in any region of the world online.

Prof. Jahan Ara also addressed the audience and stated that a number of lady doctors in USA, Canada, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have benefited from this program and many are still contacting. (PR)
