Calling for a collaborative approach, medical knowledge and empathy towards patients, vice-president of Public Health Foundation of India and executive director of the Centre for Chronic Disease Control (CCDC) Prabhakaran Dorairaj, advised medical graduates to listen to patients for better results.

Addressing graduates at the PSG Institute of Medical Sciences and Research on Friday, he also urged them to keep learning till the end. “When we start adding an additional dose of empathy and listen to them, it helps in the treatment and increases the chances of immediate cure,” he said. Such practises would also help them an extra mile in their career as doctors.

Emphasising on the importance of research in the field of medicine, Dorairaj suggested that the students should have healthy collaborations with other students and mentors so as to succeed in research.

While 155 received graduation degrees and 66 received Post Graduation degrees. Twenty academic awards were also given to graduates from the Tamil Nadu Dr MGR Medical University Examinations. Twenty-three students received gold medals.
