As part of the ongoing support provided by Sankara Nethralaya to the Ophthalmology department at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Puttaparthi, Dr. RR Sudhir, senior consultant, Sankara Nethralaya, visited the institute from December 21 to December 26, 2009.
A series of lectures on cornea were held during the period and Dr. Sudhir had the opportunity to have effective interactive sessions with both students and faculty. During his sessions with post graduate students, Dr. Sudhir demonstrated to students how to diagnose, pick and manage the findings of corneal cases. The institute, he said, is well equipped with excellent teaching facilities.
Describing his visit as productive, Dr. Sudhir said the visit also enabled him to share with the institute’s HODs Sankara Nethralaya’s experience of successfully implementing EMR. He was equally impressed to see the level of dedication, diligence and the hard-work put in by the institute’s students; qualities which Sankara Nethralaya students should imbibe.
Dr. Sudhir was also fortunate to have the darshan of Bhagwan Shri Sathya Sai Baba from close quarters and prayed for the entire Nethralaya family.
