Shaikh Zayed Hospital Lahore was founded in 1986. From the beginning it has maintained its reputation as one of the most prestigious postgraduate medical training centres in Pakistan.

Proceedings is the official journal of the institution since its inception and is now in its 30th year of publication. It is a biannual journal and represents research from all departments in the institute. Proceedings is officially endorsed by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council.
In 2015 the journal was placed online in a digital format to make its entire past, current and future issues available freely to everyone. It also represents the first step to make it easier for medical practitioners in other institutions to submit their research.

Message by the Chairman & Chief Editor of Proceedings

Prof. Saadia Shahzad Alam – Chief Editor Proceedings

Bismillah Hir Rehman Nir Raheem.

Alhumdolillah we have achieved a milestone in the 32 years of Proceedings publication. With this Pioneering Fourth Edition for 2019, the October – December Edition, we joyously reflect upon our work. We are pleased to inform our contributors regarding the expanded Editorial and Peer Reviewer Board which began its effort and earlier oversaw the first four editions published between Dec2017 – Dec2018. Maintaining our quarterly publication target through 2019 was our next target. Over 124 articles were submitted for publication during this period and judged on stringent international standards of plagiarism and blind peer reviews. We are one of the 17 journals renewed by the PMDC out of the 72 who applied from all over the country. PMDC renewal was received till Dec 2019 with ongoing efforts for further endorsement. In Sha Allah We have achieved expanded viewership as many researchers in varied medical fields have published their research with Proceedings as our Editions reflect. Addition of the unique CPC data presented by the clinical departments at SZMC has further expanded our research database. We plan to publish this significant amount of research work in the form of Research Work Supplements. Our nexus of undergraduate and postgraduate researchers, supervisors, academicians and reviewers is imperative to achieving rigorous standards of research, writing and evaluation in Proceedings.

Our future goals are HEC and International indexation. We hope creating R&D Department at SZMC in collaboration with The National Health Research Complex (NHRC), developing a new Proceedings website of international standards and building linkages with top journals and researchers both in the country and abroad. In sha Allah.
