We at LNMC regard career building as an important responsibility. In addition to individual counselling this advisory service holds seminars and workshops to increase general awareness of the professional pathways available.

Unless the students possess the awareness and make timely decisions a great deal of time is wasted and the community loses the services of a talented professional.

Student's Health Insurance Scheme

Since April 2006 when LNMC opened its doors to the 1st batch of medical students, there have occurred quite a few incidents (as one would expect) of illness and injuries suffered by our medical students on campus. Most cases required simple first aid or routine OPD treatment, but a few did require hospitalization, consultations by experts, lab tests and proper medication. Liaquat National Hospital being a private hospital, excellent facilities and treatment were provided promptly but at some cost to the parents.

  • As the students are expected to be at LNHMC for 5 years, chances are that many parents will have to pay hefty hospital bills.
  • In order to lessen such burden for the parents, the administration contacted four leading Insurance Companies who specialize in Group Health Insurance Schemes and have negotiated a deal with IGI Insurance Company offering most effective and least costly scheme for our students.
  • The salient features of the Health Insurance scheme are as follows:
    • The students, will be insured for total hospitalization limit of Rs. 350,000 per year (including Rs. 50,000 in patient medical cover. This can be increased up to 350,000 if required).
    • The Insurance cover will be increased by 100% in case of hospitalization due to Accidental injury.
    • Daily room & board charges will be covered up to Rs. 2,000 per day.
    • N.B.
    • OPD treatment / bills (e.g. for conditions such as migraine, headache, fever etc) are not covered under this scheme. However accident & emergency treatment will be covered.
    • Normally treatment will be provided at LNH, but during vacation & holidays the treatment provided by recognized local hospitals will also be covered
