'Integrate medical branches to offer best to patients'

Mangalore, Oct 8, DHNS

Fr Muller College hosts Homeopathic conference-2011

Though thousands of doctors pass out from the medical colleges every year, there is acute shortage of medical practitioners to serve in the Primary Health Centres (PHCs) located in the villages.

Udupi Deputy Commissioner Dr M T Reju speaking at the inaugural programme of 	Homeopathic Conference-2011 held at Father Muller Homeopathic Medical College in 		Deralakatte on Saturday. DH PHOTOThe doctors should be service oriented and serve the needy in nook and corner of the society, said Udupi Deputy Commissioner Dr M T Reju.

He was speaking after inaugurating the two-day Homeopathic Conference-2011, organised by Father Muller Homeopathic  Medical College at the College premises in Deralakatte on Saturday. Dr Reju, who himself is a Homeopathy graduate, said that he being an administrator was critical about the doctors who are unwilling to work in the PHCs. “The government finds it hard to find doctors who are willing to work in PHCs located in the naxal affected areas. The money should not over rule the service aspect,” he insisted.

Criticising the medical practitioners and just passed out medical graduates, he said that many medicos are completely blind of what they are doing. With communicable diseases increasing day by day, the doctors should fold their sleeves and get set to address the major health anomalies. The doctors should be like the great visionary Steve Jobs who knew what he was doing, said the DC.


Responding to the problem addressed by the Deputy Commissioner, Nitte University Vice-Chancellor and wellknown orthopaedic surgeon Dr M Shantaram Shetty said that medical practitioners will be more than willing to work in the PHCs provided there is good basic infrastructure facility in the rural areas. “The lapse is not on the part of doctors, but it is the government which should create a congenial atmosphere for the doctors to go to rural areas and work.”

If a doctor is put up for duty in a rural area which lacks a good school for his/her child’s education, he said it would be wrong to expect the doctor to work in such an atmosphere.

Calling Homeopathy as a fantastic branch, he said that the time has come to integrate all the medical branches and offer the best to patients. “Homeopaths should provide evidences as we are living in the world of evidences and innovations have to be done in the branch,” Dr Shetty stressed.

Resource person of the day, Dr Praful Vijayakar, the founder of Mumbai based School of Predictive Homeopathy said that Homeopathy will be a success if the practitioners know how to use it in a right way.

“Homeopathy has never matched the results of Allopathy, because Homeopaths do not know the proper method of using it,” he said.

Father Muller Charitable Institution Director Fr Patrick Rodrigus presided over the function.
