"The Good Physician Treats The Disease; The Great Physician Treats The Patient Who Has The Disease" - William Osler.

Medical Education places a great onus on anyone pursuing it, because not only does it give one power to save a life, but it may also result in an action which takes a life; It was therefore, correctly observed by Mark Reid that “You study to prepare for the day when you are the only thing between a patient and the grave”. This places on a Medical Institute a moral responsibility that must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of one’s own frailty.

The medical faculty at Adesh Medical College & Hospital has been chosen keeping this in mind and they are repeatedly reminded of this onerous task. It is the aim of the Institute to inculcate among the students who walk down the corridors of Adesh to learn the nuances of the art and science of Medicine. To treat the patients with compassion and empathy and develop bedside manners that reassures and comforts the patients while remaining honest about their diagnosis. Vocal tones, body language, openness, presence, honesty, and concealment of attitude are specially developed to ensure that the patient does not feel unsatisfied, worried, frightened, or alone.

The curriculum is arranged in such a way as to make attending to the sick an interesting, albeit a humbling experience. A great deal of stress is laid on development of a physician who can observe, record, tabulate, communicate and use his faculties to - Learn to see, learn to hear, learn to feel, learn to smell, and know that by practice alone you can become expert.

I wish that our students become not only good doctors but also great and patriotic citizens and serve the society with dedication.
