“ 1st Punjab Medical College Spring Festival …… An Unmatched Success”

It was idea of Prof Zahid Yasin Hashmie, Principal Punjab Medical College Faisalabad. In a meeting with Dr Khurram Raja & Dr Mohammad Irfan, in September 2012, he said, “I wish that our students can have a dress exhibition in the college. Why our children should go out to see dresses & to have entertainment outside?? We can provide them healthy entertainment here”.

And when the EVENT CALENDER for the year 2013 was prepared by the Student Affairs Committee of the institution, Dr Khurram Raja recalled the words by the Principal & proposed a Spring Festival, for the 1st time in the college. And during the selection of the events by various student organizations, Dr Humaira Arshad chose Spring Festival on behalf of Emed.

The Executive Council of Emed had an uphill task when they started planning for the occasion. They had no experience of such event what so ever. Never in its 10 years, had Emed ever organized such event. They had no penetration in the business circles & no team of organizers skilled in that.

But they started gradually with hit & trial method. Guidelines from Agriculture University people & certain other quarters showed the pathway & a small event in the start became the biggest event in the history of Punjab Medical College.

Emed showed best team spirit while preparing for the occasion & all the doctors, students, nurses, paramedics & public members worked day & night for the successful event that proved to be the turning point in the history of Punjab Medical College Faisalabad.

1st Punjab Medical College Spring Festival (8th – 9th March 2013) had a colorful & wonderful inauguration session. Director Liver Centre Faisalabad, Dr Shaheena Zahid was the Chief Guest & Principal Punjab Medical College; Prof Zahid Yasin Hashmie was the Guest of Honor.
