President's Message

Assalamu-alaikum and greetings PPS community:


I am extremely humbled and honored to serve as your President for 2024. Thank you for your confidence in me to lead a team of executive members to continue the good work happening in PPS. PPS is a vibrant medical society and has done outstanding work in their service to the Illinois and Pakistani American community, mentoring of students, healthcare advocacy and raising funds for worthy causes.

In my role as the president, I will continue to help the local Pakistani American physicians and community. I will open the corridors of collaboration and knowledge between American and Pakistani medical institutions.

I believe in teamwork and transparency as pillars for success, that I have abided as president of Chicago Medical Society and will continue to do as your PPS president.

As one of my key goals for 2024, our team will ensure regular meetings to discuss core issues and objectives with the council, ensure PPS house is fully operational, strengthen the APPNA clinic, offer Ramadan fundraiser and picnics. We will plan the extraordinary international trip and our wonderful annual meeting. We will restore our International Medical Graduate advising and provide periodic and timely updates of our activities on our website.

I am thankful to the Board of Trustees and the Executive Council for their support and look forward to a productive 2024.

If you have any ideas or projects you would like to see happening in PPS please share them with me and my team.

Pakistan Zindabad, Long Live USA

Dr. Tariq Butt, President PPS
