Introduction

Pakistan Academy of Family Physicians is the sole and true representative organization of  Family Doctors / General Practitioners in Pakistan, with over two thousand dedicated members from all over the country. Our journey commenced in 1989 from a small office in Bashir Medical Centre Lahore and since then we are progressing relentlessly.  Having no political agenda; we concentrate only on Continued Medical Education (CME) and welfare of doctors. We can claim, with all humbleness, that our CME programme is among the best in SAARC countries. We established MRCGP (International) Training Programme and courses at Lahore Pakistan. We are also fully involved with all Government Community Health Programmes and UNICEF, like Population Welfare, EPI, TB Dot and Diarrhea in Children, with soul and body.

Every year in Jan / Feb our Academy organizes an International Conference on Family Medicine, 1st was in Dec. 1989. The Conference - DOCTORSCON aims at sharing of information, experiences and updating knowledge on topics of current medical / health related issues.  Dedicated professionals from all over the globe including UK-USA attend the conference.

Around five thousand (5000) Doctors from all over Pakistan usually attend this conference, mostly Family Physicians who are providing health services to more than 200 millions people of Pakistan
