Warm Greetings! And welcome to the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka.
It is my pleasure to greet you all on the occasion of my assuming charge as Vice Chancellor of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka. This occasion also marks the beginning of New Year - 2022. The New Year brings along with it the fading memories of yester year, which were largely the reflections of the fight against uncertainties and anguish.
The persistent bane of COVID has not only decelerated our pace and reach, but also opened new avenues and challenges. The resilience that we have shown in the past two years facing the onslaught of the pandemic is a strength that we have developed and internalized as a defense mechanism.
The new year will challenge us even more and we will be even more bouncy and effervescent in our response. Both the healthcare, and educational domains have benefited from the resistance and perseverance that we have grown. There are so many creative and innovative responses which would be unimaginable, but for the dare that the disruption posed.
I am hopeful and certain that we will rise much further in our determination and efforts to make the world better. We as healthcare professionals have an immense responsibility and obligation that the society has bestowed on us. As healthcare educators, we are looked up as sources of trust and comfort. We take pride in realizing these expectations.
I would like to extend my support to all the teachers of healthcare professions, the unstinted and unlimited support and cooperation in realizing the potential of the range of healthcare professions that we practice. I request your suggestions and inputs for improving the performance of university in the domain of Academics, Research, Admission / Affiliation, Examination, Student Welfare and any related aspect of the university administrator.
The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka will always be a beacon light of hope and fortitude to all the Bravehearts of healthcare services.
Wish you all a Happy 2022 and thank you.
