It is an honor and privilege to be president of Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) which looks after the well-being of the community.
People have huge expectations from doctors and we should try to do our best to fulfill those expectations.
There is a strong need to incorporate medical ethics in the curriculum.
Medical ethics is about virtue, compassion, humanity and goodness of a physician that makes a difference in the recovery of a patient.
We all need to work together to reinvent the age-old bond between the doctors and patients.
This will rebuild the trust that is so essential for patient satisfaction and adherence to treatment.
I have started certain initiatives on health that will help to meet the health needs of underserved and unserved.
Primary health care is still a profound necessity, but unfortunately has been neglected in policy and planning.
I have proposed “mohalla clinics” that would provide better primary care and reduce the burden on tertiary care hospitals.
I pledge that I will do everything to restore the dignity and sacrosanctity of medical profession.
Last but not least, we have a social responsibility and it is an obligation on all of us to raise issues of public concern
