LUCKNOW: Deputy Chief Minister Brijesh Pathak on Friday said that the King George’s Medical University (KGMU) has a glorious history and has given many prominent doctors who have made the institution proud not only in the country but in overseas as well.
“Recently I got an opportunity to go abroad and met many doctors who were alumni of KGMU. Besides, foreigners also showed great hospitality when they were told I am from Lucknow where KGMU is situated,” said Pathak, while speaking as the guest of honour at the 18th convocation ceremony of the KGMU.
He said it is a matter of great pride that 10 out of 23 of the top 2% scientist list of Stanford University, the United States, are from Lucknow.
The Dy CM also promised help to KGMU in its efforts to secure a good rank in NAAC assessment.
Meanwhile, special guest state minister for health and family welfare Mayankeshwar Saran Singh advised students to converse more with patients in order to treat them effectively.
“Nowadays, doctors have adopted the culture of prescribing a list of tests when patients visit them. This practice should be reduced,” said Singh.
On the occasion, vice chancellor Lt Gen (retd) prof Bipin Puri presented an annual report of the institute and said: “In the 118 years of existence, KGMU has produced over 30,000 healthcare professionals who are serving across the globe.”
