Hi, this is Sheffali Sharma and I am the batch representative for 3rd year. I believe surgery is a trade of the hand, the most important thing that you can learn is technique. They say practice makes perfect, no better time to learn that than right from the start.The knowledge of some of the basic skills beforehand paves way for a better understanding of the field proper.
My role as a batch representative makes me the link between the committee and the students of my batch, spreading information about the workshops and lectures, ensuring that right information reaches the people at the right time and I plan to do exactly that. This year, we hope to bring more fun and exciting workshops and informative lectures and help streamline the process of making better
