NUMS Post Graduate Certificate in Palliative Care


Dear Participants!

We welcome you all in this 26-week online certificate program.

National University of Medical Sciences has developed this online program in collaboration with Shaheen Palliative Care Project (UK) to facilitate and continue the process of learning in the ongoing Covid pandemic that has caused an unprecedented disruption in medical education.

This program offers a wonderful opportunity to study palliative care with international facilitators. Those who complete the Palliative Care Certificate will possess knowledge, skills and attitude to serve patients living with serious illness across the trajectory of life, in a variety of general practice environments including oncology, critical care, emergency medicine, geriatrics and cardiology by involving clinicians, psychologists, social workers and spiritual healers.

This program has been developed with great efforts and we pray it serves the purpose.

I wish you the best of luck!
