Assigned a series of tasks, our interns experience all the aspects of a large trust hospital. They get a chance to work directly with patients from the poor economic conditions and get a first-hand glimpse of the hardships of life, and the trials and tribulations faced every day by the poor in our society. As part of their internship, students are required to visit the rural and peri-urban areas around Lahore where the NUR-community outreach program of FMS caters to the educational, health and vocational needs of grassroots communities. This provides the young leaders of tomorrow an opportunity to interact with the underprivileged communities of Pakistan so they can appreciate the luxuries they are blessed with and feel their responsibility to convert the glaze in the eyes of the poor into hope.
All-year around Internship Opportunities are available for Undergraduate and Graduate Students, while Summer Internship is arranged for Intermediate /O & A-Level/Equivalent Students.
