Dr. Vishwa Mohan Katoch, NASI-ICMR Chair on Public Health Research Rajasthan University of Health Sciences (RUHS), Jaipur, highlighting the broader purpose of higher education, said, “COVID-19 is a challenging situation. Students graduating must work to improve the situation in their respective domains. It is not the knowledge, but the application of it, that shall help every single individual passing out of IIHMR University to set benchmarks in their domains. The University has been galvanising society so that you students can achieve their goals. This institute looked at health in a more composite manner. As the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi are relevant even today, the teachings learnt at IIHMR University will be relevant for the rest of the lives of students graduating from this University. IIHMR University holds a legacy where students passing out can bring in transformations in even the farthest regions of the country. Unlike the other degrees existent, IIHMR University has introduced programs that carve a niche. The students must offer solutions in the areas chosen by them which will also help the Governments to move around these areas.”
Dr. Ashok Agarwal, Founder and Trustee of, IIHMR said, “IIHMR was built on the needs and contemporary requirements across the health and allied sectors. The Government and Private Sector and Hospitals have contributed tremendously and IIHMR has given a helping hand in this. Everyone should look for a consistent goal with changing requirements based on opportunities that are available and must be contributing for a larger benefit i.e towards the society. Students must be focused, consistent and must achieve goals.”
