Dr M. R. Rajagopal, Chairman of Pallium India, writes:

Meet Dr Catherine and Dr Athul.

Dr Catherine, a senior medical teacher, is attending a six week course in palliative care at Government General Hospital, Ernakulam. On 29th of June 2018, I had the absolute pleasure of interacting with the participants of that course as well as a hall full of students in pharmacy, medical social work and nursing. And also, 18 nurses from National Health mission, Tamil Nadu.

At the conclusion of the half day, Dr Catherine spoke: “I have spent a lifetime teaching medical science. But during the last one month here, I have learnt more real medicine than I ever did in my life before.”

And she complimented her former student Dr Athul Joseph, now palliative care physician and her teacher!
