It is also recognized for a number of training programs by the College of Physicians & Surgeons Pakistan in various Clinical Disciplines. What is unique about our programs is that we have strived to be innovative in our approach through its curricular implementation, its curricular delivery strategies and assessment systems. Problem based learning is for example one of the lynchpins of our teaching and learning strategy.
We take pride in the fact that Ziauddin Medical College was one of the pioneers in the region to implement this strategy. Our quest for quality has taken us through a variety of steps and improvisions and we now have an integrated program both horizontally and vertically. This allows the students contextual learning right from the beginning in a conducive environment which helps them not only to retain knowledge better but also be able to apply it critically in their clinical years. The training sites are spread over three major tertiary care hospitals; this provides exposure to students to different social strata of the population and gives them the varied experience of patients and diseases that they require in real life.
