The Department of Community Health Sciences at Peshawar Medical College was established in 2005, with a vision that diverges somewhat from its conventional role that is traditionally accepted and applied in various medical colleges around Pakistan. The department strives to combine theory with practice by adopting a three pronged approach: Education, Research and Community Service through development projects.
Provide enabling environment for creativity and innovation where the undergraduates can become lifelong learners and find out evidence based solutions for existing health issues through creativity and research to improve the physical, mental, spiritual, social and economic wellbeing of the communities.
Produce physicians with competence to provide holistic health care based on equity and justice in line with the religious, social and cultural norms of the society.
While there are many values that we cherish, our department particularly focuses on producing behavior that speaks of professionalism with Islamic ethical values. Our daily decision making shall be consultative and participatory, and we will extend this decision making to the students where feasible. We shall strive to create an environment of responsibility, honesty and integrity. We value candor and openness in our work environment because we believe that candor increases trust and eliminates red-tape behavior. Above all, we consider ourselves a learning organization, which builds on its experience and is constantly improving itself.
