PESHAWAR: The Khyber Medical College (KMC) on Wednesday hosted ‘Under Graduate Research Fare’ where students of different medical institutions were provided with an opportunity to conduct research on various important topics such as clinical, nutritional and epidemiological in the province.
The Social Welfare Society (SWS) in collaboration with Community Medicine Department of KMC had organised the event. The organisers said it was first research fare in 61 years history of KMC, which is considered a mother institution in the field of medical education of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
