Exploring Dental Education, A Paradigm Shift in Pakistan……2014

The Medical Education, as a profession is well established in the developed countries and has recently emerged as a challenging Profession in Pakistan for the aspiring Medical & Dental Graduates with diverse academic backgrounds. Whereas, the Dental Education, unlike its International established status, is nonexistent and presently in Pakistan is at a bud stage of early tooth development & tends to follow the footsteps of Medical Education. Numerous academic activities, conferences and seminars are organized in our country on the platform of Medical Education to promote the academic causes of Education, Training and Research, addressing the Students and the Patient’s Community needs.
The Organizing Committee of this conference from the Institute of Dentistry-LUMHS, Jamshoro, being a Pioneer Dental College of Sindh with over five decades of proud existence, has  made a land mark achievement and taken a major national leap and plans to organize, Pakistan’s 1st ever Conference on Dental Education.  In addition to this conference, LUMHS has also established, a State of the Art, “Dentistry Skill Lab” with the support of our previous and existing Institutional Head, the Project Director, under the umbrella of Hon. Vice Chancellor LUMHS. This lab will offer Hands on Clinical Training to produce competent Clinicians for the dynamic manual & Skill oriented Dental Profession.  
This historical conference with inauguration of our Dentistry Skill Lab is being conducted and organized under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Noshad A Shaikh, Honorable Vice Chancellor Liaquat University of Medical & Health Sciences (LUMHS). Having a vision to promote our dental Profession, respectable Vice Chancellor’s primary objective for this academic activity is, “to deliberate & resolve the existing National Challenges faced by our manual and skill-oriented Oral Health Profession”. The conference theme “Exploring Dental Education, A Paradigm Shift in Pakistan……2014”   is a pure reflection of this vision.
We hope that our humble efforts will find a new horizon and act as Positive Change Agents for our evolving Oral Health / Dental Profession. Dear Participants, the Organizing Committee looks forward to welcome you at this National historical event with our traditional hospitality, backed by the pleasant & windy atmosphere at Jamshoro, which after the largest cosmopolitan Karachi is the 2nd largest educational hub city of Sindh Province.
