ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation Dr Sania Nishtar hailed the advent of first-ever MRCP (UK) PACES exams in Pakistan terming it a matter of "great pride and achievement for Pakistan that our medical training has been recognised at an international level."

Nishtar, who herself is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of London, was invited as a chief guest at a dinner hosted by the British Council in honour of the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians United Kingdom team for bringing first ever MRCP (UK) Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills (PACES) to Pakistan.

"Dr Sania was pleased to see the highly prestigious MRCP (Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography) exam starting in Pakistan," said a press release.

Congratulating the federation team, she said "PACES is the largest international clinical exam for post graduate doctors in the world. It is a matter of great pride and achievement for Pakistan that our medical training has been recognised at an international level."
