The QMed Team

From Our CEO

I am very happy to announce that Pfizer gave us an Education Grant in April. With this, we will be delivering workshops and giving access to QMedCourses to ten AIIMS institutions. This major grant has come after 15 years of efforts from QMed and I am proud of our team that has made this happen.

In May, I conducted a workshop (the second after the pandemic) in the Ashok and Rita Patel Institute of Physiotherapy at the CHARUSAT University, Anand. The program went off very well. This institute now has access to QMedCourses and we hope that in the next year the students and faculty go through great learning.

This newsletter issue is a joint one for April and May. We do have months when it is a challenge to bring out all our communications and April-May were such months. We hope to get back on track once more now!
