Introduction


Aim / Objective
University of Health Sciences Lahore offers Postgraduate courses in Basic Medical Sciences leading to M.Phil and Ph.D degrees. The curriculum in Anatomy is designed to train the participants to meet with the major goals of the courses.

At the end of the courses its participants;

  • are confident and independent researchers.
  • have developed sufficient communication skills and other attributes needed for being a good teacher.
  • are able to provide a strong leadership in the fields of Research and Medical Education.
It is hoped that this will go a long way to foster Medical Education of relatively high quality, with strong hand-on experience and necessary skills to initiate and carry out research of internationally acceptable standard. In this respect, UHS is establishing contacts with renowned foreign Universities (such as the University of Texas, USA and Universities of Manchester, Middlesex and University of Liverpool in U.K) for mutually beneficial cooperation in terms of faculty/ students exchange for Teaching and Research activities.

Programs
The Department of Anatomy Is offering M. Phil and PhD Programs in Anatomy. Anatomy Department is currently running full time courses of MPhil and PhD in Anatomy; the course work of MPhil covers all segments of the subject i.e.,
  • Gross Anatomy
  • Microscopic Anatomy (Histology)
  • Neuroanatomy
  • Embryology (Developmental Anatomy)

General Description

  • The subject is taught by interactive Lectures with full participation of the students.
  • The course in Microscopic Anatomy is designed to impart an in depth information to the students on general and systemic Histology with emphasis on fine structure of tissues and organs and their relationship to the functions.
  • The course in Embryology deals with general and special Embryology with particular emphasis on growth and differentiation of blastomeres in different lineage and directions of development. It also deals with detailed study of normal process of organogenesis and its deviation which results in producing different types of congenital abnormalities. The details of the factors, genetic and environmental, which conduce development of congenital abnormalities, are also studied in details. A conceptual understanding of regulating gene is also given.
  • The course in Gross, Systemic and Regional Anatomy , is studied in depth with conceptual understanding, particular emphasis is laid on its relevant application in clinical fields.
  • Neuroanatomy covers the detailed morphological characteristics of Forebrain, Midbrain, Hind brain and Spinal Cord; these are studied in different sectional profiles. Recognition of different components and their functions are also streamlined in detail, including Autonomic Nervous System. Mechanism of control of different functional modalities through Neurotransmitter is also studied.
  • The course work on Major subjects of anatomy is reinforced by students opting for relevant Learning/ Teaching Modules from among the list of the elective Minors; the choice of their selection shall be directly related to the Research Work.
  • Theoretical courses are reinforced by practical classes relevant to the lectures which precede these; the lectures are interactive with the aim that the students learned the subject with active participation and develop proficiency of oral communication and expertise in preparing lecture presentation. To ensure full and active participation of the students, they are given the assignment of preparing lecture presentation and task is assigned at the last moment with the aim to foster the Trainees into competent teachers of all segments of the program.
  • During the 1st five or six month of the program, the students are directed to intensively undertake literature search in order to discover their research interests and complete writing their synopses; this is then submitted for usual approval from Advance Studies & Research Board.
  • It is desired that the research design is doable within the stipulated period of time given to them; the students may be required to run the pilot project to identify the problem areas of their research projects in order to run the main work smoothly.
  • The Thesis is completed before the end of 2nd year of the courses and is submitted for evaluation to assessors, one from outside Pakistan and two from within the country. Upon approval of the work by the assessors, the student is required to correct the Thesis to comply with the observation of the evaluators before it is submitted to the panel of examiners. The date of defense of the Thesis before public and panel of examiners comprising two internal examiners.
  • The students are regularly subjected to formative in House test in all segments of the courses and upon receiving the results the students are counseled by their respective teacher so that they can identify the gaps of information and bridge these in light of the instructions given by their respective teachers; this also applies to both the minor subjects taught in different years.
  • At the end of the M.Phil program, the bright and deserving candidate may later opt to join the Ph.D. program after following the usual procedure prescribed for admission to the course by the Higher Education Commission. After qualifying GRE examination the candidates shall undergo or shall complete 18 credit hours course work and clear it. The Ph.D students will also undertake extensive literature search to select the topic of research which should, prima facie, be worth equal to the standard of the program. The work shall be evaluated after its completion by a team of highly qualified and reputed teachers/researchers in the field; these will include at least two examiners from technically advanced countries and a comparable number from with in Pakistan; the candidate shall be considered to be successful only on successfully defending the work before a panel of examiners and subsequent approval by the Senate of the University of Health Sciences.
  • The M.Phil program will be full time, in house training course with Lectures, Tutorials, Demonstrations, Journal Club Meetings, Presentations and participation in Seminars. The candidate will be subjected to continuous formative evaluation and their progress and attendance will be regularly monitored. The services of National and International examiners will be utilized for final evaluation of the candidates and their research works.
  • Future Plans

    • We plan to admit 2 to 4 suitable candidates each year for the Ph.D and admissible number of candidates for M.Phil programs (5 to 8). Human resource development is given a top priority both in the fields of Research and Teaching expertise. It is also planned to build up the departmental library and acquire more teaching models and other supporting educational materials and research equipment.
    • Some of the Ph.D/M.Phil courses are taught in collaboration with other departments and subject experts available in UHS some are invited as visiting faculty from other institutions as well.
    • The faculty will also participate in teaching of M.Sc/ M.Phil students in Medical Technology and B.Sc Nursing programs. It is proposed to produce not only well qualified, experienced and research oriented teachers in Basic Medical Sciences but also competent professionals in the Technical and Nursing fields.

    Research Activities

    Department of Anatomy offers research for the doctoral and masters level studies in anatomy. In order to facilitate research activities department holds well equipped scientific laboratory, specimen gallery, prosection room and microscopy room etc.

    The current status of research students enrolled in PhD and M.Phil program is as following;

    Ph. D Program

    • Four Ph.D students have successfully cleared their course work and defended their Thesis.
    • There are eleven Ph.D students who have passed their course work and have started or in the process of starting their research work.

    M .Phil Program

    • Fifty M.Phil students have successfully cleared their course work and defended their Thesis.
    • One student have submitted their Thesis.
    • Nineteen M.Phil students are in the process of either writing up synopsis/Thesis or conducting research.
