Department of Emergency Medicine
The Department of Emergency Medicine was established in 2008 by Dr Junaid Razzak as the founding Chair. Since then, the department has continued to grow under the leadership of Dr Fazal H Khan and Dr Asad Mian as the second and third Chairs, respectively. The move towards an academic entity from a purely service-based unit reflected the growth in the size and importance of Emergency Medicine as a specialty in Pakistan and the region.
The department currently has 17 full-time faculty at Senior Instructor (SI) level or higher for adult and pediatric emergency medicine. The department is home to forty residents at various levels of training in their 5-year FCPS-certified residency programme. We also offer a 2-year Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship.
In addition to a clinically active emergency service, our department has a robust research team actively involved in training and supervising residents and research fellows; it also facilitates the faculty in capacity building for interdisciplinary research through intramural and extramural grants.
