Dr. Hafiz Waleed Malik 29 gold medals but no job: 'sifarish' culture exists even for MBBS toppers’

When Dr. Hafiz Waleed Malik completed his MBBS studies late last year, he was awarded 29 gold medals for topping various subjects. Perhaps that is why people are surprised that he has not yet been able to get a job as a doctor in a hospital.

In fact, he wrote in response to a question on Instagram in the past few days that ‘I applied to more than 20 private hospitals but could not get a job anywhere.’

He has claimed that 99% of doctor jobs in private hospitals are on recommendation and one percent on merit. “I could be wrong but that’s what I’ve seen.”

His talk has been circulating on social media for the past few days and it is being said about him that a young doctor is unemployed despite having won 29 gold medals in MBBS.
