The 180th meeting of the University of Health Sciences ( UHS) Advanced Studies and Research Board (ASRB) was held

Lahore, August 04: The 180th meeting of the University of Health Sciences ( UHS) Advanced Studies and Research Board (ASRB) was held on Thursday under the chairmanship of Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ahsan Waheed Rathore, in which time frame for submission of research synopsis in postgraduate clinical programs of MD, MS and MDS was approved to facilitate the trainees.

According to the time frame, it will be mandatory for the trainees to complete the training workshops within the first six months of induction. These mandatory workshops on research methodology, information technology, and communication skills will be conducted by the university. After these workshops, it will be mandatory for the candidate to submit his research synopsis within the next three months. The UHS Specialty Review Committee will be bound to approve the synopsis within three months of its submission. Whereas, within the next three months of the approval of the review committee, the ASRB will give its nod on the synopsis, after which the candidate will be able to complete his research.

Senior faculty members including Pro-VC Professor Maroof Aziz were present at the meeting. On this occasion, Prof. Ahsan Waheed Rathore said that he didn’t want the post-graduate students pushed from pillar to post for their trivial issues. He added that a lot of time of the postgraduate student was wasted because of the lack of a time frame for research synopsis submission and approval. UHS VC resolved that the medical education departments in all affiliated colleges would also be activated to facilitate their trainees. Prof. Rathore emphasized the need to strengthen the faculty development programs in medical and dental colleges.

The board members agreed that the synopsis review process should be made structured. A 7-member committee was constituted to suggest reforms in MS, MD, and MDS programs in line with international standards. In the meeting, thesis evaluation reports and panels of examiners for various programs including Ph.D. were approved. Moreover, 82 research synopsis were also approved for registration to various courses.
