Challenges and Issues in Medical Education in Pakistan

Faisal Ghani Siddiqui, Noshad A. Shaikh.

Abstract
Doctors and healthcare providers are looked upon by the society as highly respectable members of the society. Dealing with the lives of the patients is no small task! This respect, however, has a price tag. With esteem comes responsibility. Medical profession is very sensitive and one error, no matter how minor or trivial, can bring disaster. To avoid serious repercussions, it is imperative that medical graduates should have the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitude to deal head-on with the challenges that real life brings to them. The methods by which our students are converted from raw recruits into medical graduates need to be revisited. In simple terms, medical education needs to be constantly updated in response to our social needs and requirements of the medical practice.

Key words: Medical Education, Curriculum.
