Metropolis launched the very first edition of the “MedEngage Scholarship Summit 2018” on the 9th of December in Mumbai. The event was a huge success with the presence of industry experts and student winners from around the country. The stupendous response from, students have been a motivation for us & we plan to hold these summits every year with the same enthusiasm.
We had the presence of 200 esteemed guests from the industry and students from across the country to witness the grand inaugural edition of the summit.
While addressing at the award ceremony, Dr Sushil Shah, Founder & Chairman, Metropolis Healthcare, said, “In my personal experience during my student years, I have observed that many bright students couldn't pursue medical science due to financial difficulties. And I feel industry deprived these bright students from becoming specialist doctors. Students who don't have money but want to do something constructive, needs funding for research or thesis. Also students who are pursuing undergraduate or graduation programs in medical science needs to be exposed to modern technology as the current syllabus I feel is outdated. We believe through MEDENGAGE we are able to support the aspiring medical students to some extent which will benefit them financially through our scholarship program.
MEDENGAGE is an effort by Metropolis to engage and partner with medical students who essentially form the future way-forward supporting the world class laboratory assistance to raise the bar of academic research in the country. This is a part of the company’s social initiatives to bring changes and improve the healthcare research and academic landscape in India.
