SRIHER Student Visit to St. John Fisher’s, Rochester, NY-USA
6th year Pharm.D
I have visited Wegman’s school of pharmacy from 3rd January 2020 to 3rd February 2020. Wegman’s school of pharmacy’s clinical experience program for pharmacy students provides an all-round experience in various fields of clinical pharmacy practice such as community, ambulatory & in-patient case. It gave me an in-depth, view on the roles pharmacists take up in the American health care system. I was able to learn a lot about their patient care model which is far more advanced and takes a holistic approach to treatment and management of disease. I had the opportunity to interact with experienced clinical pharmacists in various settings, pharmacy students, physicians and several other members of the health care team. They were all very eager to help and guide me in a path that catered to my interests in the pharmacy field. Overall it was an unforgettable experience and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Hello everybody, my name is Diana and I am studying Medical Information Management in the 7th semester at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts. In my course of studies, I have many different topics like computer science, statistics, medical documentation, epidemiology and a small part of medicine. As part of a student exchange program at the Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education and Research I work on my bachelor thesis. During the first days we were very honored to attend the workshop for Basic Epidemiology, Statistics, SPSS and Critical Appraisal. The workshop has been a great enrichment for me because I can transfer a lot to my project and my studies. Moreover, I am very positively amazed about the classes and lecturers. The lecturers impart the knowledge in a high quality and you still have fun while studying. In Germany statistics was not a favorite subject, but since I am here, I can understand the contexts much better and I really enjoy it. The presentation "Deciphering the connect between Health and Economic Development" of Dr MGR Endowment Oration by Prof. Sanjay Zodpey was a great honor for me. This was an additional suggestion and support for my project, which compares the health care systems in India and Germany. Thereby I described some health indicators as well as the organization and structure of both countries. Of course, the history and development of the health care systems also plays a role in this comparison together with the financing. Also, with my project I was not left alone, whenever I have questions or need help, the members of the community medicine department give me the support I needed for my whole development and to improve my knowledge. Without the great engagement and the support of the university I could not have had this great experience and stay in India. I sincerely thank all stakeholders for all their efforts, the office for international studies and their staff members were very helpful for all necessary issues. I can only report good things about this University and take a lot with me to Germany. I sincerely would like to thank the Vice Chancellor, Deans and Finance Director as well as all their staff members, my thanks to all SRIHER authorities and wish the SRIHER a successful future and the very best.
My name is Fabienne Streisel and I am a student from Germany. My hometown university is the Hochschule Hannover, University of Applied Science and Arts. As part of a student exchange program of the department of Community Medicine and HochschuIe Hannover I am here at SRIHER for a whole semester. My major in Germany is Medical Information Management and this is my last semester before I graduate.
Besides the classes I attend, I am currently working on my bachelor´s thesis. I am very thankful for the support of Dr. P. Ravi Shankar, Dr. Suresh Varadarajan and Dr. Pankaj B. Shah, in this project.
At our university the different departments are located in different places in Hannover, therefore I really enjoy the campus size and the diversity of study subjects at SRIHER. The teaching at SRIHER is at high academic level and I benefit a lot from the lectures.
It´s a whole new experience for me since it´s the first time for me traveling out of Europe. Therefore I am very grateful that I have the opportunity to stay in the hostel on campus, where I feel very comfortable. I am overwhelmed by how friendly all people are and I am already in love with the Indian food. Meanwhile I´ve also got used to the weather, so I enjoy the warm temperatures here before returning to cold Germany.
We were lucky to be part of this year´s cultural program. It was really impressive and great to see how talented and creative the students here are. It has given us much pleasure to take part in it.
I am very grateful to the whole Department of Community Medicine for the different opportunities they offer us and the support we have received since our arrival. We were able to join the workshop on Basic Epidemiology, statistics, SPSS& Critical Appraisal under the guidance of Prof. BWC Sathiysekaran in our first week at the campus. Since then we were allowed to participate in various events organized at the SRIHER. As my project is about the tuberculosis situation in India and Germany, I was really happy to join the CME on TB with the focus on recent updates in RNTCP by Prof (Dr) Forhad Akhtar Zaman.
All parties involved in the organization of our stay, did very well. The Office of international studies and their staff were always helpful and all SRIHER authorities, vice chancellor, director of finance and their office and deans were very approachable at any time. Many thanks also to the Departments of Biotechnology and Genetics for having us and the opportunity to visit them and for the insights into their work.
My name is Daniel. I come from Hannover, in the federal state of Lower Saxony, which is located in the northern part of Germany. As a student there, I attend the Medical Information Management course at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts. My stay here in India resulted from the exchange program of Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education and Research (SRIHER) and the Hochschule Hanover - University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HsH)
Here I regularly attend lectures and events such as the "workshop for Basic Epidemiology, Statistics, SPSS and Critical Appraisal", which gives me a lot of pleasure and will also help me in my professional future. I am also working on my bachelor thesis, which I need to complete my studies in Germany in order to obtain my bachelor degree. With this in mind, I would like to thank everyone in this department of Community Medicine for their support. Especially Dr. P. Ravi Shankar, Dr. Pankaj B. Shah and Dr. Suresh Varadarajan for their support.
I would also like to thank the departments of Biotechnology and Genetics for the opportunity to visit them and gain insights into their work.
What I was most looking forward to in advance, before my departure, were the warm temperatures, which were really intense at the beginning, as it is rather cold in Germany compared to India and the indian food. German food is rather plain, compared with indian. Some personal highlights for me are the trips with the autorickshaws and how friendly the people here are.
Anyway. In Germany we learn a lot about statistics, data management, clinical trials and the basics of medicine. Thus, the topics in the lectures we attend are not foreign to me and even help me to understand facts even better. The teaching and the way we teach at SRIHER is on a high level. The campus is also very impressive. The size makes you think this is a world of its own. Above all the many green excites me, because it seems very paradisical.
I would like to wish the institution a successful and beautiful future, which will hopefully include even more foreign students.
