Head of Department Message

Paediatrics is a subject dealing with health and disease of children. In the near past, it was taught as a subsidiary of medicine and no separate examination was conducted. Now it is taught as separate subject and examined separately, which indicates its importance in Medical education. Children are future builders of a nation, so their health is more important. Almost 50% of population are children. High morbidity and mortality, especially below five years of age is a challenge in third world countries. To meet this challenge we emphasize more on EPI programs, diarrhea management, pneumonia,malnutrition and other commonly prevalent
diseases. Paediatrics is a separate subject, which starts soon after birth till adolescence, deals with nutrition, growth and development, vaccination and mental development and prevention from major killer diseases.

Departments Introduction:
A knowledge of paediatrics for a medical graduate is as important as other subjects, rather more. Our department of Pediatrics is well established at both affiliated hospitals, Dar-ul-Sehat and SESSI. Our target is to train our graduates in a manner that they will have all the basic practical knowledge which will not only help them if they choose paediatrics as their career but also will help them to excel in General Practice and other fields of medicine. To cater their training, LCMD has highly trained teachers at all levels. Affiliated Hospital has separate Paediatric ward, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) with latest equipment and a big supporting library with IT system for teaching and training.
