Cardiology observership at JNMC


Aligarh : It looks incredible that a student of a prestigious international school medicine of the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom (UK) underwent a month-long hands-on training at the Department of Cardiology, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).

UK Citizen, Dr Prakhar Gupta (Student at the School of Medicine, University of Sheffield) was trained to deal with an array of medical conditions and situations in a month-long cardiology observership programme at JNMC.

He observed procedures and surgeries; attended patient rounds and teaching conferences; enhanced history taking, assessment and diagnostic skills; explored areas of interest in the ongoing research and initiatives; performed physical exams under the supervision of faculty members—who shared clinical knowledge with him and provided him with a strong clinical overview of specialties and interacted with renowned senior doctors.

AMU Vice Chancellor, Prof Tariq Mansoor expressed happiness on JNMC’s international recognition.

“This observership programme bears testimony to our world-wide recognition”, he added.

Prof M U Rabbani (Chairman, Department of Cardiology) pointed out: “This observership programme connects health care trainees around the globe to cardiology services at JNMC”.

Prof Janine Kirby (Director for postgraduate studies, University of Sheffield) extended gratitude to the JNMC authorities and the University administration for providing Dr Prakhar with invaluable hands-on cardiology clinical experience.
