March has been a great month for all of us. From celebrating Womenâ€™s Day to expanding university facilities to having fun on Holi and everything in between, we did a lot in a month.
Here is a quick look back and look forward. Letâ€™s dive in:
#1 Vice Chancellor on Recent Developments and Future Plans of LAU
Hello, all students and LAU members!
Hope that March was as great for you as it was for the entire University!
Last month we celebrated Holi together, and it indeed filled our University with colors of happiness, success and new milestones in our journey of becoming a leading medical institution in the world.
In the previous month, some of our significant plans have come to life, and the major one is the expansion of clinical rotations in Nepal. We have tied up with Manmohan Memorial Teaching Hospital, Nepal to offer our students clinical rotations in the country of shrines.
Thatâ€™s not all; we are in the process of land acquisition in Guyana to develop a fully equipped University campus that will advance the existing infrastructure for medical education as well as to enhance the overall experience for our students.
On that note, I, on behalf of all the LAU members, reaffirm that we will keep our endeavor going on to expand the ground of opportunities for all our students and that your future at LAU is in safe hands. We need the continuous support of all the stakeholders including the parents to make LAU a renowned global destination for quality medical education.
By working together on this exciting journey, we can travel miles towards a glorious medical future, and we will!
