The only payment for his lectures, as said by him, is “An act of charity for every lecture you take!”
He has a total of 88 students right now, and he takes their classes twice a day. Moreover, he has urged all his students to do charitable work in one of the following ways:
- Give food to someone in need.
- Donate money for the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment for Doctors.
- Smile at someone and brighten up their day – he believes it would have a good impact psychologically during the lock-down.
- Donate blood for thalassemia stricken children; who are suffering a shortage of blood donations due to the lock-down right now
As a result, he puts a lot of effort every single day.
Right now society does not understand at what loss medical students are. We are losing the precious, that too in the most crucial year (only 10 months away from dealing with life and death.) and even amidst this, Dr Sheharyar has stepped in to save the future of the field.
When the lockdown started, we were confused and worried because we have a huge syllabus to cover and finish at a given time; as rotations in hospitals start on fixed times. While we were all left helpless and unable to decide how to deal with the stress, Dr Sheharyar was there to save us. Not only is he a great teacher but he has also truly been an all-rounder all his career.
Here’s a little bit about our hero!
Dr Muhammad Sheharyar Khan, when in his 2nd year of MBBS went to the USA on 100% scholarship. He earned the honour of Global Business Institute Scholar from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, USA; currently the 4th best business school in the world.
When he was in his final year, he was given a chance to represent Pakistan at the International Students’ Festival in Trondheim, Norway on scholarship. Along with his MBBS degree, he also has a Bachelors in Science from Punjab University. Furthermore, he was also awarded an outstanding alumni award by the British Council, Pakistan and Cambridge International Examinations.
In his university life, he was the President of the Debating Society and also the Trainee Editor of our University’s Research Journal. Right now, he’s studying Artificial Intelligence at the Prime Minister Artificial Intelligence program. As a result, he would be the first MBBS graduate in the history of Pakistan who will have skills in Business and Artificial Intelligence along with a Bachelors in Medicine and Surgery.
He is a source of pride and inspiration for all his juniors and deserves appreciation for the contributions he makes to the society and to those who are around him.
