In Unit III final year MBBS students are treated as lifelong learners and teaching activities are focused by imparting knowledge, skill and attitude among them .They are encouraged to learn obstetrics & Gynaecology on clinical basis. Ward teaching and OPD teaching is done on daily basis by the consultants. Every student is given special attention during their stay in the unit for the enhancement of their academic activities, regular feed backs are being provided to them to make up their deficiencies. All the clinical sessions are designed by keeping in mind the outcome based learning and learning objectives are first discussed with them. We facilitate leaning in the ward and operation theater, and students can see all the major and minor obstetrical and gynecological operations and procedures. After rotation they underwent a formative assessment test to evaluate that learning has occurred effectively.

UNIT III provides excellent opportunities for the postgraduate training in a conducive academic environment. Our aim is to make our trainee a competent consultant in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. Special emphasis is placed on the training in trainee centered approach, self directed learning is promoted and training is supervised on the basis of adult learning principles. Every trainee  is given ample opportunities to enhance their presentation skills by presenting their cases once a month in front of their peers and faculty members, there are two teaching sessions in a week apart from the teaching rounds by the visiting consultants, in these teaching sessions trainees are presenting their cases in a time bound  format  like they will  present in the part 2 FCPS & MS examination which is followed by mock viva by supervisors, which further enhance their presentation skills and abilities.
Special attention is paid to impart PROFESSIONALISM among trainees. They are regularly assessed in formative way, by work placed based assessment (WPBA), they are also evaluated by case based discussion and mini-CEX, according to the new principles of medical education.
There are 24 FCPS, 1 MCPS, 4 MS trainees completing their training in the unit at different stages. Two research scholars Dr Uzma Yaqoob, Associate professor and Dr Tanveer Watoo are doing their PhDs .Dr Nadeem Goraya is doing his MSC in medical education, only research work remained.
