MUHS to start 15 Fellowships courses by super specialists fr
Postgraduate doctors will now have an opportunity to get trained under some top supra-specialist doctors practising at different hospitals in Maharashtra. The expertise and innovation of these doctors in surgical and medical techniques, which are not part of the regular curriculum, will be made available to post-graduate doctors in the form of a year-long fellowship.

The fellowship programme will be offered to post-graduate students at reasonable fees from August 1 this year. Students are likely to be selected on the basis of an entrance test conducted by MUHS. Colleges affiliated to MUHS, keen to offer these courses independently, can apply by February 20.

At least 15 doctors have agreed to train four to five young doctors annually, and also devise curriculum based on their unique skill sets. The move, aimed at creating more specialists in the state, will be spearheaded by the university vice-chancellor Dilip Mhaisekar. Registrar of MUHS, KD Chavan, said that the state plans to offer up to 15 such specialized fellowship courses.
