Under his dynamic leadership, EMW is ready to set a new trajectory of excellence and a novel precedent of success. With great efforts of worthy Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Faisal Masud and Prof. Irshad Hussain Qureshi (the Chairman of Medical Floor) EMW is fully renovated centrally Air-Conditioned ward with fully equipped ICU and provision of central oxygen supply on each and every bed of the ward.
