As a part of the Certificate Course in Hospital Management (CCHM), the participants had an opportunity to meet the Chairman Emeritus of Dr.S.S.Badrinath on Saturday, the 20th of June 2015 and spend cherished moments with the living legend and shared their feelings.
“We had a very meaningful interaction with him as he made some observations on our backgrounds and enquired what we felt about the course and sought suggestions/improvements.
We shared our thought to introducing the hub and spoke method of treatment in eye care across the country and introduction of insurance as a topic in the course. After a patient listening, the Chief told us that it was a challenge in the present day scenario to get good eye care doctors who are willing to work as a team.
He said that the Nethralaya was fortunate to be blessed by Kanchi Paramacharya while the institution was run on the support of the donations from philanthropists and well-wishers across the globe.
He made special mention about the Mobile Eye Surgical Unit, which goes to the villages and conducts surgeries, greatly benefitting the villagers. A mention was also made on the research that is being conducted in the institution with respect to the various areas in eye care. Dr Badrinath also encouraged us to be the ambassadors of the institute.
This session, which was very ably facilitated by Shri A.Mahalingam, Deputy Registrar of the Sankara Nethralaya Academy concluded with exchanging pleasantries amongst one another”.
