Hello Doctors, Doctors-To-Be!
Starting in August 2020, we commence the first batch of the Patient Safety Management Certification Programin collaboration with the Public Health Foundation of India. We wish all students who are participating in the program all the very best and great learning.
Now, let’s go through what we’ve been up to this month and kickstart August with a positive thought:
#1 Work In The Present: Greetings from Vice-Chancellor.
As you all already know, the number of COVID-19 cases is only rising, the entire system is working to combat the pandemic situation, and people are anxious because the future looks unpredictable more than ever.
To stay calm during such unpredictable times, more than physical strength; what we need is mental strength and a growth mindset.
Gautam Buddha once said, “The past is already gone, the future is not yet here. There’s only one moment for you to live.”
The moment we are living into, i.e., the present, is always the best moment to live, no matter what. At present, we must stop thinking about the past and predicting the future and act upon our immediate responsibilities using the resources we have got.
Now, when you are practicing social distancing and when you are not allowed to visit places, you have got a big bunch of time in your hands. Never will you ever be going to have such a massive pile of time with you again. Use this time to learn new things, invest more time in education and research, and strengthen the foundation for the “Future You.”
The future is not made of predictions. It is made of what you do today, your present moment. So, stop predicting or worrying about the future. Live in the present. Work in the present. Once you do this, your future is all taken care of.

#7 Watch: “Quintin Quarantine Quartet” from Guyana’s Health Ministry.
