                                                   Prof. Tariq Iqbal Bhutta, Chief Guest of the Convocation

“You can enjoy this unique status of nobility and respect as long as you keep yourselves current in knowledge” Prof. Zafar Ullah Chaudhry, President CPSP.

Prof. Tariq Iqbal Bhutta graced the second of the 53rd Convocation series  on 23rd November 2019 at Multan Regional Center of CPSP. He thanked the President and the Council for having him at this august occasion. Prof. Bhutta, after congratulating the graduating Fellows and Members of CPSP, advised them to go forth and serve the poor and wanting masses who have hardly seen the face of a medical specialist dwelling in rural and less fortunate areas of Pakistan.

He added "Getting a postgraduation in medical sciences is not enough; it is rather beginning of your career that  demands  you  to  squarely  meet the requirements of people of the country who are the poorest of the poor and needy, peasants, workers and common persons in the streets. By  fulfilling  this  duty,  you  would  be  returning  the                    

gratitude to this great Alma Mata of yours".

He congratulated CPSP for maintaining high standards of exams whereby the passing Fellows and Members have to acquire best skills during their training.

The Chief Guest informed the audience that Multan has the distinction of having both the two first fellows of CPSP from Multan. He added, “(Late) Prof. Noor Ahmed Noor and (Late) Dr. Shamim Akhter were the first recipients of FCPS by qualification and were awarded fellowship in 1968 convocation. Prof. Noor Ahmed Noor set the bar so high that after the exam Prof. James Cameron the President of the Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh, among one of examiners, told Noor Ahmed Noor that ‘we have failed to fail you’.”
