Dr BC Roy National Awards for the years 2008-2010 have been announced. We will be presenting conversations with the winners of the Dr BC Roy National Awards regularly in eMedinewS.
Today, the first of these conversations features Dr Neelam Mohan, a pioneering and dynamic Pediatric Gastroenterologist in the country in conversation with Dr KK Aggarwal.
How does it feel to be conferred with one of the most prestigious awards in the medical field?
It’s like asking an actor getting an Oscar award or Filmfare award … it’s really a lovely feeling. You feel good that all hard work and efforts are appreciated.
What motivated you to choose an unconventional specialty like Liver transplant, Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology in the 90s?
I was keen to pursue a career in medicine that was new, different and unique. After completing my Postgraduation in Pediatrics, I had shortlisted three choices - Cardiology, Gastroenterology and Genetics.
