Shifa College of Medicine is now 10 years old, six batches of full fledge doctors have passed out. Since its very inception, the SCM has been trying to be true to its avowed aim i-e. My Lord! Bestow knowledge on me and join me with the righteous. and grant me an honorable mention in later generation (ash-shu ara: 83-84).
This has meant that right from its inception, SCM has been looking for ways to turn out better and better doctors. We started out with a review of our current practices and compared them to the medical education practices in scientifically advanced countries. We realized that we need to change the instructional mode from rot-learning to reasoned conceptualization of human maladies. Thus it became paramount that the faculty and student combine to develop the belief of mind and mindset, ideational fluency, synthesizing and analyzing ability and ability to reorganize and redefine. This has been a continuous and demanding process and will get more complex in the foreseeable future.
I therefore, suggest to the would-be student of the SCM to apply to the College only if they feel up to the task of becoming critical creative thinker. We will make the experience rich and rewarding as long as you make the requisite effort.
