Introduction of Department of E.N.T
Fazaia Medical College has a state of the art ENT department, which has no parallel in Islamabad. We are fully equipped with modern surgical and diagnostic tools up-to-date with current technology. In the OPD, rigid nasoendoscopes and fiberoptic endoscopes are available along with multimedia and LCDs to facilitate the students in learning as they aid in better visualization of anatomical structures and increased understanding of disease. Our operation theatres possess all the latest surgical instruments used in advanced surgical techniques including ossiculoplasty, endoscopic sinus surgery, bronchoscopy, mastoidectomy, rhinoplasty and other head and neck surgeries. Emergency services are available round the clock. Latest equipment for hearing assessment is also present to assess hearing of children as well as adults.
Numerous studies and researches are being carried out with proper data collection to promote research activities among the students. The Head of department conducts clinical classes in wards on a daily basis for improved and effective education of the students. The junior doctors also take part in this process by assisting the students in examining patients. House officers and post graduate trainees are being guided in different fields in collaboration with radiologists and pathologists. The department has been recognized for post-graduate training by CPSP and PMDC. The students are being trained under direct supervision of the head of department and get a chance to present cases in clinicopathological and national/ international ENT conferences. Well organized journal club meetings are being held with input from other departments like radiology, pathology and neurosurgery.
A Cochlear implant center will be introduced soon in collaboration with British otologists. An Allergy center will be set up in the near future, keeping in mind the needs of our patients as allergic rhinitis is one of the most common health issue in Islamabad.
