The emphasis on training and teaching has been paramount and practiced since the early seventies. In 80’s SIUT initiated research degrees of Master of Surgery (MS) and Doctor of Medical (MD) programme with the collaboration of Karachi University and the first master in surgery was certified in 1984. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan recognized the institute for fellowship training in urology, nephrology, anesthesiology, pathology, radiology, infectious diseases, gastroenterology and paediatric nephrology.
A four year BS programme in intensive care, dialysis, laboratory sciences, radiology, nuclear medicine and operative surgery started in 2005. After internship the students become physician assistants a cadre unique to this country creating an important niche in the training programmes. SIUT established School of Nursing in 2006 in affiliation with the Pakistan Nursing Council to run a nursing diploma and diploma in special renal nursing program.
Similar to the patients who are treated free with compassion there are no tuition fees for any training program and no one has to look to their pockets. Thus far over 1500 doctors, nurses and technical persons have been benefitted from SIUT teaching programme whereas presently 247 are under training in various specialties.
The number of programs and growing students community necessitated a formal degree awarding status which was given to SIUT by the Higher Education Commission in the form of Sind Institute of Medical Sciences (SIMS).
