Hello future student at MMC&RI, Mysore.
It is quite possible that you've been searching all around for details of admission procedures and fee structure of Mysore Medical College & Research Institute, Mysore for the year 2014.

First Thinks First - a workshop on first aid

The Academic Society and St John Ambulance gave this workshop on first aid in the Anatomy lecture hall on 6th June.


Behind the scenes
Dr Abeer, Bhavika, Dr Chandrakumar, Dr Gurudatt, and Dr Manjunatha (possibly more or less people) shaped this workshop.
Volunteers (who were present while we were practising the skits at the Lion's waiting shelter) included: Pratibha, Swathi, Shruti, Vivek, Madhu, Nivedha, Noor, Meghna, Terese, Prashasth, and Me.
I made this PowerPoint at CCD with Dr Abeer and Bhavika. The skit would go along with the presentation.--

On the day:

I went searching for printing facility (for this) in different shops in landsdowne building to no avail. And reached the Anatomy Lecture Hall about 15 minutes late (at 9). Connected the laptop. Bhavika had brought her speaker too.

The inauguration was done by the dean.

Dr B Prakash handled all the sessions - including demonstrations.

While I was taking photographs behind the audience, Bhavika called me to the stag…

CME on dissertation and synopsis - a statistical view

The Department of Community Medicine, MMC&RI organized a CME on statistics today in the P&SM lecture hall, which was being renovated all this week for just this occasion.

The first talk was on the importance of statistics in medical research.
I missed the second talk about synopsis.
Then Dr Ganagaboraiah talked about which statistical tests are best for which methodology, the pitfalls in using different tests, the importance of correct sample size, avoiding bias, the importance of confidence interval, significance, power, etc.

This was followed by my favourite session on R by Dr S Ravi. He showed R studio and gave some reasons to use R in a beautiful latex (beamer?) presentation.

And ironically, systat (who was sponsoring the day?) gave a talk about the systat software in the end. The conversation revolved around how systat is at par with SPSS which highlighted the generalized apathy towards R. Makes me wonder if I should quit medicine and build a GUI for R and sell it.
