15 Veterans Cherry-Picked, Fellowship To Start In August
Postgraduate doctors will now have an opportunity to get trained under some top supra-specialist doctors practising at different hospitals in the state. The expertise and innovation of these doctors in surgical and medical techniques, which are not part of the regular curriculum, will be made available to post-graduate doctors in the form of a year-long fellowship.
At least15 doctors have agreed to train four to five young doctors annually , and also devise curricula based on their unique skill sets. The fellowship course, an initiative by Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS), will be implemented with help from doctors in the state this year and will be taken to the national level by roping in top doctors from other states too. The move, aimed at creating more specialists in the state, will be spearheaded by the university vice-chancellor Dilip Mhaisekar.
Registrar of MUHS, KD Chavan, said that the state plans to offer up to 15 such specialized fellowship courses.
