The University of Health Sciences (UHS) Syndicate has approved a third-party audit of postgraduate academic programs before developing any strategy for the future.

The 70th meeting of UHS Syndicate was held on Friday with Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Ahsan Waheed Rathore in the chair. The meeting approved the transfer of staff between university departments to reorganize the existing management system.

Besides, it was decided to hire consultants to develop a proper documentation and record retrieval system.

UHS VC apprised the members that the PC-1 of the varsity’s Jinnah Campus entailed shifting nine departments to the new campus. The body agreed that the shifting process should be expedited.

It was also agreed that a paucity of staff must not affect the working of the university and, therefore, vacant academic and administrative positions be filled on a priority basis.

On this occasion, the syndicate members expressed full confidence in Vice Chancellor Professor Ahsan Waheed Rathore and gave him a free hand to take necessary administrative decisions as per his statutory powers.

Those who attended the meeting included University of Education (UE) VC Prof Talat Naseer Pasha, UHS Pro-VC Prof Maroof Aziz Khan, Institute of Allied Health Sciences’ head Prof Saqib Mahmood, Registrar Dr Asad Zaheer, and representative of Punjab Finance Department. Renowned pediatrician Prof Sajid Maqbool, De’Montmorency College of Dentistry (DCD) Lahore Principal Prof Waheed-ul- Hameed, Sargodha Medical College Principal Prof Humaira Akram, and representative of the Health Department participated through video link.
