GUWAHATI, Nov 15 - Leading surgeon of the State Dr Subhash Khanna was invited as a faculty to take interviews, assess and select�candidates who wish to pursue the post-doctoral specialised courses Mch and MMed in various surgical disciplines in the United Kingdom under the Wrigtington Weigh and Leigh NHS�Foundation Trust and Edge Hill University of UK.
A press release issued here said these are recent additions to the English teaching curriculum. These 3-year�courses were started two years back where an aspiring non-British origin surgeon can select any of the specialised topics including colorectal, upper gastrointestinal, urology, orthopaedics, cardiothoracic, etc. With the shortage of Mch seats in India, the demand for such courses has increased.
In India the interviews are being conducted in Delhi and Bengaluru. In Delhi over 240 candidates appeared for the interview conducted by 40 experts including five Indian surgeons from various specialities.
