1st Dec. 2020, 09:30-11:00 am GMT / 14:30-16:00 pm PST

Pakistan's health care workforce needs to be able to meet the needs of diverse populations. Thus, an appropriately prepared and skilled healthcare workforce is essential. As the world is now a global village, there is frequent movement of healthcare professionals within and between nations; this requires graduates to be able to not only work in their own country, but also work globally.

This interactive session explored the opportunities and challenges associated with upskilling Pakistan's future healthcare workforce.
