The efforts of KREAD FOUNDATION in Medical Education have been recognized by Indian Medical Association (IMA) & Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC). In last one year we have successfully executed:
Looking at the requirements and limitations in the medical fraternity to spread specialized education to fellow doctors or upcoming doctors there was need of a platform through which this all of this could be obtained. MFCME is platform which not only is useful to teach fellow doctors or students but also can be used to diagnose & treat patients without being bothered of the geographical limitations.
Under this initiative we gave 30 Grant installations to different engineering and management campuses, who now act as nodal institutes to their vicinity whenever we deliver lectures or any content. Although colleges such as VJTI, Colleges from the symbiosis group of Institutions, Pune, DY Patil Pune, MIT Pune etc, are a part of this initiative, 80% of the colleges are in rural areas, and now receive the best speakers / teachers of the discipline, delivered at their doorstep through this virtual classroom system.
Speakers like Dr Arun Nigavekar – Ex UGC chairperson and founder member of the STP; Dr Govind Swaroop and Dr Alyque Padamsee, both Padmashrees; Dr Shashi Tharoor and Mr Prahlad Kakkar, both the best in their respective trades; Mr Prashant Ahir, Mr Sharad Gangal, Mr Rajesh Purushottam, Mr Sudhakar Panda all from HR departments of the companies like Tata Motors, Thermax, Sterlite and Fiat; and many such eminent &prolific speakers have delivered their experiences for the benefit of these students.
