It may seem such a small development, but we believe this is a matter of huge significance for the future.

House surgeons undergoing their one year mandatory rotating internship at the end of their medical education in Government Medical College, Trivandrum will hereafter have a week’s practical exposure to palliative care with Pallium India’s team.

On the 16th of April 2012, two young doctors, Dr. Minu and Dr. Meera became part of history by being the first to join the program. On that day they went out on home visits with Dr. Sunil Kumar and team.

Since then two or three house surgeons  take turns to involve themselves with palliative home visits for a week each.

We look forward to the ripple effect created by this generation of young doctors.
