Take medical edn to masses: Ramdas

28th AOI conference begins; national, international delegates taking part

He was speaking after inaugurating  28th Association of Otolaryngologists of India (AOI) State conference and sixth South Zone Conference organised at Platinum Jubilee hall of Mysore Medical College and Research Institute (MMC and RI) at J K Grounds here.

Substantiating his opinion, Ramdas said medical education is restricted to those in the realm-faculty and the students. Recalling his stint as the Chairman of Medical Education and Health Standing Committee in Legislative Assembly in 2001, Ramdas said he underwent an experience that became a driving force in opting for Medical Education Ministry.

About 150 students of Mauritius had been admitted to a hospital due to some illness. Owing to which their admissions for education got delayed. The then President of Mauritius had issued a statement that though India produces a large number of doctors, still there is a dearth of good doctors. This very statement made me accept the challenge of heading the Ministry. Ramdas said a collective effort would help in producing doctors with finesse and it’s not far from achieving.

President, AOI, India, Dr Anirban Biswas said henceforth the conferences should be opened to doctors across the nation, instead of restricting it to zones.

Chairman, Organising Committee of the conference, Dr P Sathya, secretary, Dr K M Govindegowda, general secretary, South India, Dr Ramakrishnaiah, Dr Dwarakanath Reddy, Dean and Director, MMC and RI, Dr D Venkatesha were present.
