Sharif Trust came into existence in 1995. Its founder Chairman Late Mian Muhammed Sharif, a great philanthropist and a luminous industrialist, had a vision of establishing a Medical City for the provision of quality healthcare and educational facilities to the under privileged class of the country at par with international standards. The first step in this direction had already been taken in 1986 through the establishment of Ittefaq Hospital.
Henceforth, Sharif Medical City Hospital was established. The hospital functions with a mission of delivering highest standards of patients care by way of providing a wide range of high quality value added medical services to the patients with the commitment to carefully monitor affordable quality healthcare.
In continuation of this vision, Sharif Medical & Dental College was established in 2007. The college has been successfully imparting standardised medical education to meritorious medical students at par with the international standards under the able guidance of highly qualified medical educationists. During the undergraduate training, in addition to preparing the students to achieve academic excellence, due emphasis is laid on inculcating values of ethics, empathy, professionalism and discipline in them.
Under the academic umbrella of the Trust, various courses pertaining to paramedics are being run by Sharif College of Nursing (SCN) and Sharif Institute of Allied Health Sciences (SIAHS).
Sharif Postgraduate Medical Institute (SPGMI) is successfully imparting training to post graduate doctors in various basic and clinical medical specialties. Sharif Medical Research Centre (SMRC) provides research opportunities to aspiring researchers in medical field.
Sharif Institute of Urology and Renal Transplant (SIURT), Sharif Centre for Cleft Lip and Palate (SCCLAP), Sharif Center for Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery (SCALS), Sharif Specialized Surgery Center for Obesity and Diabetes, Sharif Orthopedic & Joint Replacement Center of Excellence, Sharif Center of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, and The Heart Centre and The Heart Centre are Hospital based specialised centres functioning on multidisciplinary approach under one roof, providing quality medical services to the ailing.
Establishment of Sharif International University is underway and would become a reality soon.
May Allah guide us and bless us with success in our future academic and philanthropic endeavours. Ameen.
