Medical Journalism Department being set up at UHS Lahore

LAHORE: All necessary arrangements are being made to formally establish a proper Department of Medical Journalism at University of Health Sciences Lahore at its new campus. The proposal was first initiated while Prof. Javed Akram was the Vice Chancellor but somehow no worthwhile progress could be made. Prof. Ahsan Waheed Rathore the current VC of UHS has assured that necessary posts will be created, budget approved and the department will start functioning in the coming few months.

He made this announcement during the discussion at the formal induction ceremony for CME Batch-6 of Certificate in Medical Editing and Batch-2 of Certificate in Medical Editing and Journalism on February 28th 2024. Earlier Mr. Shaukat Ali Jawaid Advisor for CME at UHS speaking on the occasion had remarked that for internship the candidates of CMEJ have to go to Karachi for four days to see the working at the offices of three Impact Factor journals, Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences, Journal of Pakistan Medial Association and Journal of College of Physicians & Surgeons Pakistan which all have proper infrastructure and set up with essential staff and other facilities. Had UHS provided all these facilities for Biomedica the official journal of University of Health Sciences, they could have availed this internship here at Lahore.

Responding to this Prof. Ahsan Waheed Rathore VC UHS remarked that let us take it a challenge. You provide me the details required staff and facilities, we will put it in the budget and get it approved and let us make available to have the required infrastructure for internship training. PAME had earlier already prepared a working paper with input by Mr. Shaukat Ali Jawaid, Prof. Jamshed Akhtar, Prof. Nadia Nasim and Mr. M. Atif. It was decided that Prof. Nadia Nasim will forward this document for planning and budgeting for approval.
