Chennai, July 2019: On the occasion of National Doctor’s Day, Fortis Malar Hospital organized a unique activity by reaching out to 50 students of Biological Sciences belonging to class XI and XII of Avvai Girls Higher Secondary School, Besant Nagar. In order to gain insights as well as have more clarity on the roles, significances, challenges and responsibilities of the doctors, each doctor was assigned a set of students which allowed them to interact and learn the basics with regard to the daily duties and responsibilities followed by doctors. Apart from donning the medical coat along with stethoscopes, the students also received firsthand experience of a day in the life of a doctor.
The major objective of the event was to create awareness for the students to have a strong understanding of the commitment required for this noble job of saving lives. The school children were enlightened on the essential qualities required to be physician, the guidelines to be followed for a doctor-patient relationship and how to deal with complicated and challenging cases.
Saluting his notable contributions and dynamic excellence as a doyen in the field medical service, National Doctors Day is commemorated every year across India on the 1st of July in remembrance of the distinguished legendary physician of India – Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy (Dr. B C Roy).
