LAHORE:The University of Health Sciences (UHS) Syndicate Friday approved a third-party audit of postgraduate academic programmes before developing any strategy for the future.

Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Ahsan Waheed Rathore chaired the 70th meeting of the UHS Syndicate and approved the transfer of staff between university departments to reorganise the existing management system. Besides, it was decided to hire consultants for developing a proper documentation and record retrieval system. The UHS VC apprised the members that the PC-1 of the varsity's Jinnah Campus entailed shifting nine departments to the new campus. The body agreed that the shifting process should be expedited. It was also agreed that paucity of staff must not affect the working of the university and, therefore, vacant academic and administrative positions be filled on a priority basis. The syndicate members expressed full confidence in the VC and gave him a free hand to take necessary administrative decisions as per his statutory powers.
