Hyderabad: Over 200 MBBS students of the 2014 and 2015 batch were presented degree certificates during the 3rd graduation ceremony of the Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences and Research at Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills, here, on Saturday.
The best outgoing student Dr Keerthana of the 2014 batch and Dr Ganesh Reddy of the 2015 batch received Dr Prathap C Reddy’s Gold medal from Apollo Hospitals Group, Chairman, Dr Prathap C Reddy.
Addressing the graduating students, Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences Vice-Chancellor Prof B Karunakar Reddy said of late the curriculum for MBBS has been revised by incorporating ethics, communication skills and computer language.
“This modified curriculum will enable our young doctors to face the patients and attendants much more confidently. One more important thing is documentation. It is important to document all the details of the patient, as that helps you to study the disease pattern, response to treatment, complications, or publish papers, present in a conference, or in the worst scenario of a case being filed against you, those papers come to your rescue,” Prof. Karunakar said.
Dr. Prathap Reddy said if the government can promote medical tourism, India has the capacity to become the global healthcare destination of the world. “It is you all who will make this difference through which we can give better or best care anywhere in the world,” he said.
Dr Sangitha Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group & Secretary AHERF also spoke on the occasion.
