“We are happy that participants rated 4.6/5 to our workshop. We believe that workshops are just information sharing and knowledge comes through experience when information is applied practically. We made sure that the contents of the workshop are according to the needs of residents. Even after the workshop, we continue to help participants in their practical queries. We hope to continue this educational series over the years which would help residents save more lives”, said Dr Sumedh Jajoo, Associate Professor of Medicine.
