SIUT organized its annual volunteer program in July which was aimed to provide training to the students in the field of community services, patient care and civic education. Three hundred students representing various schools and colleges of the city attended the week long program.
Speaking at the concluding ceremony, Prof Adib Rizvi Director of SIUT said that the program has always been designed in such a manner that students learn and develop understanding as to how to mitigate the sufferings of the people. This, he said, makes them good citizen and also brings a positive change in their outlook in life.
Prof Adib pointed out that the program is very popular ever since it was launched ten years ago. He informed that during the training program volunteers received training about the basic guidelines of patient care in the field of Laboratory, Radiology, Urology, Dialysis, and Transplantation, medical and surgical sciences. Those who attended the program received certificates which was part of the concluding ceremony. So far around six thousand students have attended the program. Also present at the concluding ceremony were members of SIUT faculty, parents of the participating students and teachers who imparted training.
