Shortage of clinical faculty at JPMC and NICH to be met soon

Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre and the National Institute of Child Health will soon have more clinical faculty to meet the shortage in their ranks.

In a meeting with the Minister for Universities and Boards Ismail Rahu, the Acting Vice Chancellor Jinnah Sindh Medical University and Executive Director JPMC Professor Shahid Rasul and Executive Director NICH Professor Nasir Saleem Saddal discussed the problem of the lack of qualified clinical human resource in the hospitals. The Minister appraised the situation and issued orders to meet the shortfall of clinical faculty on priority.

The shortage of clinical faculty at both JPMC and the NICH, which are also JSMU’s teaching hospitals, has been a long standing problem disrupting healthcare delivery to the masses who visit these hospitals from all over the country.
