Obstetrics and Gynaecology (OBGYN) are two surgical specialties dealing with female reproductive organs, and as such are often combined to form a single medical specialty and postgraduate training program. This combined training prepares the practicing OBGYN to be adept at the surgical management of the entire scope of clinical pathology involving female reproductive organs, and to provide care to both pregnant and non-pregnant patients.
The Department of obstetrics & Gynaecology was established at Madina Teaching Hospital in 2006 by founder head of department Prof Dr Saadia khan. Later on the administrative responsibilities were carried out by Prof Dr Mubashra Naz alongside her substantive academic/clinical duties.
