Success Story of the Course

National Intensive Interactive Preparatory Dermatology Courses for MCPS & FCPS candidates were initiated at PNS SHIFA Karachi in April 2005. Their main objective was to apprise the candidates of their shortcomings and guide them accordingly for preparation of examination. The idea was cherished by the dermatology community as being a unique, much demanded and required activity for post graduate trainees of Dermatology at National level.

The first course was conducted at PNS SHIFA in collaboration with CPSP from 25th to 30th April 2005. Twelve candidates (preparing for FCPS and DCPS examination in Dermatology) from Lahore, Islamabad, Faisalabad and Karachi attended. Since then it is regularly conducted twice a years and so far 25 courses have successfully been held. The Chart below shows the growing interest of Dermatology Candidates about the course
