Anant ,30 January 2020

       The “Global Future Physician Program” at VIIS for the University of Minnesota stole the limelight in January as the new year 2020 was ushered-in. The two week program for 25 pre-med students hosted from Jan 3rd to Jan 16th 2020 was led by Dr. Marcia Weimerskirch and Dr. Phillip Plager, Faculty members at the University of Minnesota. The Pre Health Student Resource Centre of University of Minnesota has been partnering with VIIS for the last 9 years through this program with the objective of understanding the social influences on public health & medicine while providing a platform to compare both general and public health perspectives of India and the United states. Apart from the academic sessions on the health care in India, NGO’s role in health care delivery, Bioethics & research and others, the students took up field visits to public and private hospitals besides visiting some heritage sites for the “India Experience”.
