For this special third episode, Parth and I sat down to discuss his experience of working with a non-profit in the village of Paty, in district Champavat, in Uttarakhand. He intends to work with this group long-term, especially since he has discovered yet another CMC Vellore connection with the physician leading the NGO's work in the region. In a short, free-wheeling chat, we discuss about his experience, reflect on the CMC Vellore program of sending postgraduate trainees to different mission hospitals, and how he thinks this experience will mould his ongoing MD training.
