Dean’s Message Prof. Dr. Syed Shoaib Hussain Shah MBBS,DMJ,M.Phil,PhD,DABFM,FACFEI,CFC Dean Health Sciences Health care is no longer an isolated domain of a nation. It has taken on a global dynamic. Medical tourism is on the rise and health care professionals now have to cater to their requirements. Patient care is no longer the sole prerogative of a physician but that of a health care delivery team including doctors, paramedics, nurses and public health experts among others. I see our graduates as a part of this team, catering not only to the health of the nation, but the health of people all over the world. If you see yourself fit to take on the challenge to be a “Global health provider” and be an agent of change then I welcome you to the IMDC community. 04

IMDC Creed The creed is a complement to the college's conduct code. It explains why we regulate and restrict what we do. It forms the basis for and serves as “a summary of what is expected by the institution.” It can be called our “summary of values”, “a statement of principles” and “a statement of standards we hope will govern relationships in the community.” Some people like to call it a “Social Honor Code” or “a code of Ethics”, we like to call it a “teaching tool” in the hope that faculty and staff will use it to help students claim the rights and respect they deserve and to understand the obligations and assumptions that come with being a member of the IMDC community. If you remember when you were young and wanted to do something your parents did not want you to do, you may also remember how it felt when you asked “Why not?”, and they answered,“because we are your parents and we say so.” Part of the reason we have the IMDC creed is because we do not want members of our community to feel that way. We feel we have an obligation to respect students and to respond to their legitimate questions– “Why?” or “Why not?” introducing students to the creed is a way we affirm or express our recognition of the worth, dignity and ability of any individual student. Core Values Community of scholars at Islamabad Medical and Dental College is dedicated to personal and academic excellence. Choosing to join this community obligates each member to a code of civilized behaviour. As a member of Islamabad Medical and Dental College Community: Ÿ I will practice personal and academic integrity § I will respect the dignity of all persons § I will respect the rights and property of others § I will discourage bigotry, while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas and opinions § I will demonstrate concern for others, their feelings, and their need for conditions which support their work and development Allegiance to these ideals requires each IMDC community member to refrain from and discourage behaviours which threaten the freedom and respect that every individual deserves. 09 Yasir Niazi Managing Director
