It happened! The MD course in Palliative Medicine started in Tata Cancer Hospital, Mumbai.

Dr Arunangshu Ghoshal (right) is the first doctor to join the three year course.

It was a pleasure to talk to him and to share his enthusiasm:

“No one knows about palliative care. Medical students must learn it.”, he said.

You have a heavy responsibility on your young shoulders, Dr Arunangshu!

Best wishes to Dr Arunangshu, and a hearty congratulations to Professor Maryann Muckaden and team, on this achievement!
