Dr Nuzhat Faruqui
It is a
matter of great pride and honour for me to be elected as the
president of an academic and versatile society like PAUS.
From its humble beginnings, PAUS has grown in leaps and
bounds to become the nation’s premier platform for
innovative brain storming and center for excellence in the
field of urology. With our 11 local chapters, and a U.K.
branch, we shall pool our formidable manpower and resources,
and with the help of modern technology, we shall utilize our
potential to attain and maintain our vision to the fullest
extent. To this end, I would welcome any new comments,
ideas, and suggestions for improving the website and the
association in general.
Our country today is at a crossroads. We are a great nation.
But we need to correct our international image. We currently
require dedicated professionals and ardent pupils: people
who would show the world that Pakistan is certainly not all
about violence, but about learned, hard working and talented
individuals who do their best to serve ailing humanity in
the field of urology just like people anywhere else in the
civilized and developed world.
I look forward to helping and exhorting PAUS do its bit
regarding that. The vision that I have for the website of
PAUS encompasses improvements in various aspects of training
both at postgraduate as well as consultant level. I plan,
with the help of all the members, to have increased
interactive communication amongst all the members
internally, to find new ways to improve on the existing
educational and professional facilities that we have. We
shall also fulfill our external obligations to make PAUS a
strong advisory body to CPSP, PMDC, and the ministry of
With the youthful exuberance, heightened interest and
ecstatic zeal, I foresee a bright future for our association
and all its members, Insha’Allah.
Centuries ago admiral nelson, on his flagship said, “England
expects that everyman will do his duty”. He won that battle.
Today we expect no less from our countrymen.
