Belgaum based, Karnataka Lingayat Education (KLE) University Vice-Chancellor Chandrakant Kokate advised young MBBS degree holders to serve in rural areas. He was speaking after inaugurating the first Graduation Day of Shamanur Shivashankarappa Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre (SSIMS and RC) in Davangere recently. Mr. Kokate said; that doctors should love their country, their motherland, language and culture, must develop an attitude to serve the poor and marginal class people. People are losing faith in medical service as those in the profession seem to be looking only at the economic perspective instead of being service minded. The outgoing fresh MBBS graduates must dispel the notion that medical profession has become a business.
There are hundreds of doctors who have brought reputation to the medical profession by providing services to tribal’s and villagers. They have settled in hilly regions, terrains, slums and dalit colonies. “The younger generation must take a cue and provide good serviced to the people and uphold the dignity of the medical profession”, he said. He said that “medical service is rapidly extending its activities to every nook and corner of the world”. “In India alone, there are more than 335 medical colleges producing 40,000 MBBS holders every year. But shockingly, crores of people are deprived of standard health services in remote and rural pockets due to poor basic facilities and other reasons. The passing out medical students should contribute their mite to the society,” he said. Shamanur Shivashankarappa, Principal Nagaraj, Vice-principal Shashikala Krishnamurthy and others are seen.
