Société coopérative médicale de Beaulieu scholarship
I am 49 years old Medical practitioner working in district Faisalabad Pakistan. I graduated (MBBS) from Punjab Medical College in 1992. I have done my post graduation in Mother & Child Health and health administration in year 2006 and 2008 respectively.
I am working in an NGO (Humanity Social Welfare Society) as Medical practitioner for the last twelve years. I also work as Family Physician in a Pvt Hospital. I arrange and conduct various medical camps regarding Breast feeding, vaccination, health education and raising awareness in community. I can perform routine abdominal surgery, ultrasound and check outpatient department. I also perform some administrative/office duties.
My areas of interest are sexually transmitted diseases, family planning including bilateral tubal ligation and male sterilization.
I have an opportunity to work as physician in MOH Saudi Arabia for four years from 2010 – 2014. It was a great time to work in multicultural environment. I found discrimination in health seeking behavior and wide spread discrimination in Saudi culture and society. Women are especially deprived of their rights. Family planning is not allowed due to religious reasons.
I hope this course would set great mile stones in our future career. I wish all the best luck to all course participants.
