Tibb ed­u­ca­tion in PU

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - PROF DR US­MAN GHANI

Univer­sity of Pun­jab planned to ini­ti­ate the es­tab­lish­ment of De­part­ment of East­ern Medicine in Septem­ber-Oc­to­ber 2005, which is still pro­jected on its web­site. The Univer­sity, there­fore, ad­ver­tised the ad­mis­sion in 2005 and ad­mit­ted 30 stu­dents in this pro­gramme. But the Phar­macy School, on pres­sure from in­flu­en­tial known quar­ters, closed the pro­gramme.

The stu­dents were forced to leave the pro­gramme of East­ern Medicine and were not only shunted out, but were de­nied to de­posit the req­ui­site fee. So this pro­gramme is still held in abeyance. The peo­ple and the stu­dents are con­tin­u­ously de­mand­ing that this pro­gramme be again re­opened for ben­e­fits of cu­ra­tive, pre­ven­tive and pro­mo­tive health­care de­sign with her­bal medicine to cover health­care for all. — Karachi
