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.

As the COVID 19 Pandemic rages on, we steadfastly publish a diverse April to June 2020 Proceedings with added international and indigenous short communications on varied aspects of this developing catastrophe. Our target is to consolidate the gains made in 2019. All articles submitted for publication have been 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 further renewal under process

As Our Editions reflect we have achieved expanded viewership, with researchers in wide ranging medical fields from different institutions publishing their research in Proceedings. Addition of the unique CPC data presented by the clinical departments at SZMC has further expanded our research database. Publication of this significant amount of research work in the form of Supplements is in the offing. Our nexus of undergraduate and postgraduate researchers, supervisors, academicians and reviewers remains imperative to achieving rigorous standards of research, writing and evaluation in Proceedings.

HEC and International indexation procedure is ongoing. We have reached the final round of review by Scopus. Our vision is to create an R&D Department at SZMC in collaboration with The National Health Research Complex (NHRC), develop a new Proceedings website of international standards and build linkages with top journals and researchers both in the country and abroad In Sha Allah.

Our Motto “We Venture Forth”
