PSP holds first international conference on medicine


December 12, 2019

The Pakistan Society of Physicians (PSP) held its 1st international conference of medicine under the theme of “Current Insight and Future Prospects in Internal Medicine.” The conference continued from December 6 to 8 with several pre-conference workshops as well. It was formally inaugurated by Governor Shah Farman on Friday. He assured the PSP Executive Committee to provide the best environment to this platform so that they can focus on patient care appropriately. It was a comprehensive gathering led by experts of the field and attended by delegates from across the world. The conference aimed to provide a platform for all the physicians where they can discuss up-to-date research and all the new advances going on in the field of medicine as well as to see and use all the available sources in our country for physicians’ improvement in the patient care.

Research topics, telemedicine, conventional medicine, the status of life-ending patients and a variety of different diseases were thoroughly highlighted to increase the knowledge of physicians and find a probable way to these scenarios.

The PSP also discussed the positive image of Peshawar and made it possible to attract all the medicos to the historical city for learning, educating and leading the field of medicine. KP Chief Secretary Kazim Niaz also attended the conference and distributed shields to all the organisers and a cultural memorandum to foreign delegates.

PSP President Prof Dr M Usman said: “We were feeling that for physicians, there was no such platform in Pakistan where they can interact and devise guidelines and perform research for the diseases that burden is high in the country and experts’ panel is needed to find a way out for their prevention and cure. In the shape of PSP, now we have an environment conducive for improvement in healthcare.”
