Fatima Jinnah Medical University’s Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Aamir Zamaan Khan and MS Ganga Ram Hospital Dr Fayyaz Butt were also there. She had a brief discussion in the meeting on research MoU, child and mother hospital and training of healthcare professionals. Dr Yasmin Rashid on this occasion said that the government was trying to make all senior registrars of government hospitals as trainers. Research work plays vital role in boosting the standard of any educational institution. Special research programmes will be started in all medical universities of Punjab, she added.

The minister said that research papers would be appreciated at every forum and help was being taken from Leeds University to boost the scope of research in students of medical universities.
