Shalamar Hospital and LUMS signed an MOU on Saturday 3rd July 2021 to strengthen their partnership and foster strategic alliance in improving health education and research. Shalamar Hospital will host interns from the M S Healthcare Management & Innovation (MS HMI) at LUMS to complete their six month internship program. The students will be placed in various hospital departments where they will receive practical learning and an exposure to a healthcare system. The students will also get a chance to apply their management and technical skills in a realistic setup.
Both the institutes are also working on a few research studies covering areas that are very important for the health sector of Pakistan. LUMS is also engaged with Shalamar on developing educational cases studies that will be used as course material for the classes at LUMS. The collaboration between both the institutes is expected to increase in future and more projects under this partnership will be realized.
