Unfortunately, after completion of their medical course, most of the female medical graduates never work.
Prof Masood Hameed said that admission ratio of female medical students in medical colleges on general merit seats is high as compared to male in the country; thus there was an urgent need of introducing online family physicians’ courses to bring this pool of medical fraternity back in profession.
He said that government and families had spent millions of rupees on medical education, training and skill development of lady doctors annually but quitting medical profession was having a terrible impact on national healthcare system.
He said DUHS management has designed a special online family physician course for such female doctors to pull that pool of doctors back in profession.
