About Us


Shalamar Medical & Dental College, Lahore has established a comprehensive set of competencies and institutional objectives to prepare students for practicing medicine in the 21st century. The principles of surgical teaching stand on the general competencies and institutional learning objectives. The general and specific learning objective discussed in this manual associated with each competency and the cognitive domain (knowledge, skill, attitude/behavior) are being continually institutionalized.

The six general clinical competencies for medical students (identical to the general competences of postgraduate training) include


  • Integration of the Basic Sciences in Medicine

  • Integration of Clinical Knowledge and Skills to Patient Care

  • Interpersonal and Communication Skills

  • Professionalism

  • Organization and Systems‐Based Approach to Medicine

  • Life Long Learning and Self‐Improvement

As we progress through the basic science curriculum of medical school, we would periodically review these competencies and educational objectives. These provide valuable guidelines to organization of the knowledge, skills and attitudes we will teach during this phase of professional growth.
