Karachi: Under Prof.Dr Navid Rashid Qureshi’s prestigious leadership, the Department of Health Professions Education (DHPE) introduced a short course on Research Methodology. The course aimed to promote evidence-based dentistry and equipped faculty with the knowledge of research.
The course spanned for two-months that would conclude with all participants’ synopsis presentation to the college Institutional Review Board (IRB). A small group was selected on a first-come basis for effective learning. Prof. Dr Athar Majeed Khan, Prof. Dr Tahera Ayub were the main facilitators followed by Dr Hiba Hamid and Dr Beenish Shah.

Meanwhile, a series of webinars were also arranged to address faculty concerns regarding COVID-19 and safely practice dentistry.
