By Pervaiz Imam

RIYADH, Sept. 25, 2000 – Expansion programs of medical colleges were discussed at a meeting of the Pakistani doctors here recently, in order to help in the admission of talented overseas Pakistani students to various medical and dental faculties during the current academic year.
Member of the Board of Trustees of Margalla Institute of Health Sciences (MIHS), Islamabad, Pakistan – Dr. Habibullah Khan, addressing the doctors and parents, said: "MIHS provides excellent environments, which are conducive for the medical studies, peaceful living, personality development and acquisition of knowledge and Pakistani culture."
He said that the institute is the leading institution of Pakistan, offering courses in MBBS, BDS, BSc (Physiotherapy) and BSc (Medical Technology). The college campus is well established with modern infrastructure, internationally reputed faculty members and its own teaching hospital.
He said he had himself donated a large part of land for the college and hospital, which have their own buildings.
Presently, MIHS is affiliated with the Isra University (Pakistan) and the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council has recommended the recognition of both MBBS and BDS courses at the MIHS. About 150 students from Pakistan and children of overseas Pakistanis from all over the world are studying there. The courses are well designed to meet the modern medical sciences.
The institute also offers health services to the community and medical training facilities to the students. New college campus on an estimated area of 150,000 sq. yards is being built to cater to the growing needs of medical students; many of them are foreign from the Gulf countries.
Habibullah Khan said that some Saudi students have also been admitted and they are being encouraged to join this growing modern institute to provide education to diversified areas.
Dr. Khalid Almas, associate professor of the College of Dentistry, King Saud University, who hosted the reception in honor of the veteran doctor, said that the institute is faced with the challenge of providing the latest knowledge in medicine, dentistry and other health sciences. .
