World Young Rheumatic Day Department - Orthopaedics:

The Department of Orthopaedics celebrated ‘World Young Rheumatic Day’ on 18.03.2024 at SMVMCH, Puducherry. On this day celebration, we conducted Poster presentation and quiz competition. With the auspicious inauguration of the event by our Medical Superintendent, Dr. M. Pragash, the event was spectacularly conducted by Associate Professors Dr. Naveenkumar K. Poster presentation was conducted on topic – Awareness of Rheumatic disease in young people among public for undergraduates, interns, nursing students and postgraduates. Total of 12 posters were displayed in front of public people at hospital ground floor. Dr. K. Karthikeyan, Professor and HOD, Department of Dermatology and Dr. S. Girija, Professor, Department of General Medicine judged all the posters and announced the winners. In the afternoon, Quiz competition was conducted on Rheumatology for undergraduates, interns and postgraduates. Total of 26 teams participated in the preliminary round and final 4 teams were selected based on their performance. Quiz competition was highly informative and useful for both students and interns. The faculties also shared their profound knowledge and rich experience. The programme happened to be an eye opener for the students and also gave them an intrinsic exposure to Orthopaedics, theoretically and clinically. We express our immense gratitude to everyone for making this programme a grand success!
