India’s Manipal Hospitals has partnered with the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO) and the British Training Academy (BTA) to launch the Indo-UK Paediatric Training Program.

This programme aims to provide quality training in the paediatric super speciality to young paediatricians in India.

The one-year post-graduation and super speciality training will take place at Manipal Hospitals, followed by a three-year opportunity for further skill refinement in various UK hospitals.

This programme involves Indo-UK faculty from Manipal Hospitals and BAPIO, led by Manipal Hospitals chairman Dr. H. Sudarshan Ballal, and BAPIO director Parag Singhal.

Dr. H. Sudarshan said: “This collaboration will provide an unprecedented opportunity for Paediatricians and Neonatologists in India to learn from global experts and enhance their skills in diagnosis and patient care.

“We are confident that this partnership and one-year training program will benefit many young doctors aspiring to hon their clinical skills.”
