Saturday Seminar

Shifa College of Medicine has held the tradition of organizing seminars/workshops for capacity building and faculty development on a regular basis since 2008. During this time, we have had sessions conducted by our own faculty. We have also invited Guest speakers to train our faculty and give their insight into key aspects of medical education. Recently, our activities have also been accredited for CME points.

Saturday Seminar:

Faculty development seminars are held on the last Saturday of every month. It is a two hour session aimed at providing the faculty an opportunity to enhance their teaching skills and to keep them abreast with the latest developments in the field of medical education.


Guest speaker Sessions:

We are privileged to have national and international guest speakers who are experts in their fields. They have conducted interactive sessions in their respective areas of interest.
