A number of CPD workshops shall be arranged with the Professional Development Center DUHS and other Institutes of DUHS to provide hands-on training as enhancement and application of knowledge to GP skills. Workshops though an integral part of this e-CME course may or may not be entirely free.

This shall be the Physician Level I activity and considered mandatory for all grades of practitioners. This e-learning programme shall be run Pakistan College of General Practitioners e-Center free of cost by DUHS. Family Physicians, the professionals whose recognition of symptoms, diagnosis and

intervention counts toward better management of health problems and their subsequent outcome at referral centers has been hitherto unrecognized and unheeded. In due course the PCGP shall conduct special trainings to develop interest groups for managed care and research and planning. Through collaborations and complementary roles PCGP expects to introduce the philosophy behind Family Practice and Primary Care and bring about positive changes in the health of the people. The College plans to produce trained and qualified General Practitioners to run the affairs of a strong-backed health delivery system for taking care of the health of the people and the future of our new generation of practitioners.
