Shifa stu­dents con­tinue tra­di­tion of ex­cel­lence

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

MIAN AR­SHAD ISLAMABAD—The grad­u­ates of Shifa Col­lege of Medicine have up­held the stan­dards of ex­cel­lence in their un­der grad­u­ate trai­ing by scor­ing higher than av­er­age scores in USMLE Step-I and II ex­am­i­na­tions.

The credit for this goes to col­lege fac­ulty the ef­fort of the stu­dents and lead­er­ship of prin­ci­pal Dr. Syed Shoaib Hus­sain Shah.

In 2014, Shifa grad­u­ates sur­passed their coun­ter­part international med­i­cal grad­u­ates (IMGs) by a sig­nif­i­cant mar­gin. This trend con­tin­ues this year too, as shown in the ECFMG re­port. The USMLE mean score of Shifa grad­u­ates was 225.1 as com­pared to 210.7 for other IMGs. This past per­cent­age of stu­dents in this ex­am­i­na­tion was 93.8% for Shifa and 77.6% for other IMGs.

Stu­dents from Shifa achieved a mean score of 226.6 in the stepII clin­i­cal knowl­edge ex­am­i­na­tion while other IMGs scored 223.7. The pass per­cent­age of stu­dents in step-II was 80.6% for Shifa while for other IMGs the pass rate was 77.9%. In step-II clin­i­cal skills ex­am­i­na­tion the pass per­cent­age of Shifa grad­u­ates was 91.3% while for other IMGs this was 81.9%.
