My name is Dr Saad khan , im 26 and a govt officier BPS 17 working in the largest hospital of asia in lahore . I was number 2 out of 40000 people in the medical college enterance test . I studied in the best medical college of lahore king edward medical college . I graduated in 2010 . I have 16 gold medals in 12 subjects , u can confirm frm my alma mater with my roll number 166 class of 2010.
My grandfather and my father after him are both graduates of king edward medical . The day I graduated my father who is a respectable medical consultant sat me down , he looked me in the eye and said son , there is no future for u here , i asked u to go to lums , u didnt . u wanted to become a doctor , ab leave this country , yahan doctors ka koi haal nai . i wasnt naive . i knew he was right . par along with almost all of my friends i decided to stay . i didnt want to leave my parents . I enroled in a post graduate traing program of surgery and started working . 12 months i worked . My duty hours were 110 hours perweek with and increase to 150 hours every 3rd week ( there are a total of 168 hours in one week . some weeks i barely even saw my mother of whoom im very fond . but no matter . I have worked deligently all my life , when i was green i used to count how many lives i had directly saved . i reached 211 after which it became futile to even count. directly i have saved the lives of more people than most of u know . til last year i was paid an exact ammount of 22340 rs per month . tht is exactally 50 rs for every hour of duty . but it was alright my dad is rich , i dnt want for anything . my pocket money is 4 times my pay . par taking money from your father is humiliating . especially after all the work i put in . i cant marry as i cnt support a wife , i cant even affort my cars petrol going and comming frm my hospital if my father doesent giv me pocket money .
Last year v striked for better pays . It was something tht v were forced to do . every one does not have a consultalnt for a father . some doctors workled 2 jobs . can u imagine working 2 jobs when one of them is 440 hrs a week . u cant . its inhuman . khair . after the govts reaction last year (they fired me along with 4400 other doctors) i had a change of heart . frankly this is wht i thought . to hell with pakistan and its people . i was bitter and i was wrong but the govt wasnt blame less . in the end the pay was incrased by 15000 . as of last month my exact pay after taxes is 41240. around 100 rs per hour . its not enough but its ok . v can live on itv still have no defined duty hours , would u belive that more than 50 percent doctors work for free ? it is called honorary job . v have to complete training years and v work for free v have no promoton system , out of total of 34k doctors of pnjb only 200 can hope to go grm grade 17 to 20 . most never get a promotion . this is called a service structure. this year v have striked again v wore black bands demonstrated peacefully all year , 4 meeting were held and on all 4 govt rep made promises they subsequently broke, after the last and 5th broken promis v striked . according to p.m.dc rules sub section 2 a and b v are not slaves . u dnt have to work if v dnt want to . how can anyone fiorce a human to work , thts only possible in slavery . the govt can go ahead and hire doctors who are willing to work in such conditions , good luck finding em . . but my heart is broken . I applied for training in america . after looking at my achedemic record .nd passing 3 international exams with 99 percentlile i applied for a visa . in 3 days i got my h1b work visa frm the american embassy in isb as i was a doctor . 2 weeks ago i was offered a job at the kingsbrook medical centre newyork. my initaial pay is more than most industrialists make in a month. my flight is in 17 days . i dnt plan to come back . i love pakistan . par pakistan , shehbaz sharifs pakistan doesent deserve me . out of my class of 310 , 159 were ladies and married and did not practaice medicine . 23 lady doctors are working , 90 percent of the male ones have all immigrated
