Message from Dr Sanjay Desai, Director – Ramaiah Advanced Learning Center
Dr Sanjay Desai (Director)
Greetings from Ramaiah Advanced Learning Centre !
All of us have learnt many new dimensions in the last couple of years , Covid 19 has taught us all well.
We here by inform all our industry partners and surgeons coming to our centre to arrange or attend hands-on workshops that all necessary precautions against the COVID 19 infection–where ever mandated by Government, have been taken.
All our staff have received 3 doses of the vaccine arranged by the Ramaiah Medical College & hospital. The cadaver undergoes RT-PCR testing in addition to the previous routine testing of HIV, HbsAg and HCV and accepted only after the results come in as negative.
With the ease and now familiar Online learning we are also ready to host training via demonstration of procedures by faculty and enable telecast of the entire session to outside venues, both as complete Online or Hybrid sessions.
We also arrange for people to utilize Single station labs involving “one to one training” especially in Orthopedic procedures (Arthroscopy, trauma, tendon repair, arthroplasty, PAF fixation, Spine instrumentation) throughout the week.
Let us make use of the time and resources which is now made available to learn, teach and benefit ourselves to be better positioned in the times to come.
Wishing you all safe times and encourage you to reach out to us for any assistance.
Best Wishes and Happy Learning.
Dr Sanjay Desai
