Apollo Hospitals selects Medvarsity Online

first_img Medvarsity course to help in improving skills while reducing attritionMedvarsity, a pioneer in online medical training has been chosen by Apollo Hospitals to support the online simulation training for resident doctors. The training aims to augment medical education for healthcare professionals through the utilization of state of art technology with the goal of improving overall clinical outcomes.This simulation environment would allow doctors to learn, practice and repeat procedures as often as necessary in order to correct mistakes, fine-tune their skills, and optimize clinical outcomes.Dr K Hari Prasad, President Apollo Hospitals Division said,“With passing time we are observing critical challenges in healthcare, a dearth in skilled junior doctors and lack of access to simulation tools for training. With Medvarsity’s simulation training program for resident doctors we are looking at bridging the gap in skills and also use the training program as a capacity builder. This will be a great program for young doctors to acquire good clinical skills that will help them in managing their patients better”India, along with the rest of the world is seeing a scarcity of skilled doctors, according to a study by PwC, there are 1.7 doctors to 1,000 population. The state of Indian healthcare is worrisome on the whole and more so because of number of less skilled professionals.Owing to the situation, there is a great demand for upskilled healthcare practitioners who can understand the dynamics of growing challenges that the industry is facing, on the whole. With the outlook to provide better patient care and career opportunities for the doctors, a strategic approach is necessary. Medvarsity, with its varied range of clinical and non clinical courses have been specially designed by doctors, for the doctors.Gerald Jaideep, CEO, Medvarsity Online said,“We are proud to support Apollo Hospitals in the key area of upskilling their residents on critical clinical skills. Apollo’s need to have the best talent is critical to their success and our simulation training tools are best suited to bridge the skill gap.”Even with information overload of today’s times, a busy doctor still struggles to be well versed with the latest developments in the industry and that is where Medvarsity aims to bridge the gap.

Ko, with No. 1 in sight, leads Thompson in S. Korea

first_imgINCHEON, South Korea – Lydia Ko took advantage of Sung Hyun Park’s struggles to take the lead Friday in the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship. The second-ranked Ko made an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 7-under 65 and a one-stroke lead over Lexi Thompson. Park followed her course-record 62 with a 74 to drop two shots behind. “I thought I played really solidly and made a lot of good putts,” Ko said. “When I was in trouble, I got a little fortunate, got a good lie in the rough.” The South Korean-born New Zealander moved into position to regain the No. 1 spot in the world from South Korean star Inbee Park, one of her playing partners Friday. Ko would take the top spot with a victory and also could move up under other scenarios depending on where Inbee Park finishes. Inbee Park replaced Ko atop the list in June with the first of her two major victories this year. “The closer we get or if there is a switch, the media is going to talk about it,” Ko said. “I’m sorry, but I’m going to try and ignore you guys. I think that’s the best way. Because when I’m out there, I’m just trying to hit a good shot and put myself in good position. If I thought about the rankings, the awards, it’s just way too much. It’s hard enough just trying to hit the ball straight out there.” Ko had a 10-under 134 total on Sky 72’s Ocean Course. She tied for second last week in the LPGA Malaysia after winning her previous two starts in Canada and France, where she became the youngest major champion. Inbee Park was tied for 25th at 3 under after a 72. She’s tied with Ko for the tour victory lead with four. Thompson birdied three of the final four holes for a 67 on the course made more difficult by some tough pin positions. “There were a few that were tucked on some ridges and that were just hard to get to,” the American said. “I think there’s going to be even harder ones tomorrow.” Sung Hyun Park took a four-stroke lead into the round and was seven shots ahead of Ko. “I think it would be a lie to say that I didn’t feel any pressure because of the record that I set yesterday,” Sung Hyun Park said. Still four strokes in front after birdies on Nos. 4 and 5, she bogeyed the next three holes to drop into a tie for the lead with Ko. The 22-year-old South Korean player, making her first LPGA start, missed a 3-foot putt on No. 6 for her first bogey of the week, had a 4-footer circle the cup and stay out on No. 7 and missed from 6 feet on No. 8. She birdied the 10th, but bogeyed the 12th and 18th. “It was very difficult to read some of the putting lines,” she said. “I think I missed a couple of putts that I could have made. That’s kind of lingering on my mind at the moment.” South Korea’s Yoon-Ji Cho also was 8 under after a 68. Taiwan’s Yani Tseng, the 2011 winner, and South Korea’s Mirim Lee were 7 under. Tseng shot 67, and Lee had a 69. England’s Charley Hull, playing alongside Sung Hyun Park and U.S. Solheim Cup hero Gerina Piller in the final group, pulled within a stroke of the lead on the seventh hole, but dropped five strokes on the next six holes and finished with a 74 to drop into a tie for 19th at 4 under. Hull four-putted for a double bogey on No. 8, made a bogey on No. 10 and had another double bogey on the par-5 13th after hitting into the water. Piller also was 4 under after a 74. American Jessica Korda, the Malaysia winner, was 1 under along with Michelle Wie and U.S. Solheim Cup captain Juli Inskter, the oldest player in the field at 55. They each shot 72. Ko and Inbee Park attracted a large gallery. “It’s great to play in front of big crowds,” Ko said. “I think they are as excited as us, even a little bit more. … Last year was the first time playing in Korea, and I’ve been noticing even more and more how much they love the LPGA and how much they love golf. I think the numbers are only going to go up. I think it’s going to be pretty crazy on the weekend.”last_img read more

Broad at peak of powers, says ex-England captain Strauss

first_imgBroad was kept waiting to join Anderson in the six-strong “500 club” after Monday’s fourth-day washout in England’s series finale with the West Indies at Old Trafford left him stranded on 499 Test wickets.The bowler was controversially omitted from England’s four-wicket loss in the first Test at Southampton but starred in the series-levelling win at Old Trafford and has been the standout performer in the third Test, also at the Manchester ground.The 34-year-old has taken eight wickets in the match so far and scored a dashing 62 in England’s first innings to change the course of the game.Strauss, who captained both Broad and Anderson, paid tribute to their longevity.“They’ve been a phenomenal opening partnership, that goes without saying,” he told reporters. “They are two of England’s greatest of all time.“What has really impressed me with both of them is their hunger to continue. For the two of them to be so hungry is extraordinary.”“I honestly don’t believe Stuart Broad has bowled much better than this. There were a couple of years where perhaps he ‘lost’ his wrist a bit and it was hard work for him bowling to right-handers.“This series so far he seems to be equally potent against left and right-handers.”Both Broad and Anderson, who turns 38 this week, are at an age where previous new-ball bowlers would have long since retired, although England would, ideally, like them to keep going until the 2021/22 Ashes in Australia.“For all of us let’s write them off at our peril and let’s not be in a hurry to pension them off because they have both got a lot more to offer England,” said Strauss.The former skipper also acknowledged the benefit of the competition for places provided by fast bowlers Jofra Archer and Mark Wood, giving England enviable resources to call on.– ‘Something to prove’ –Strauss said the key to Broad’s success was his “competitiveness”, with the Nottinghamshire seamer revealing he felt “frustrated, angry and gutted” at being left out of the first Test.Former England captain Andrew Strauss rings the bell before the start of the third Test between England and the West Indies at Old Trafford. POOL/AFP/File/Michael Steele“He is at his best when he has something to prove,” said Strauss. “He’s had the bit between his teeth in these last two Test matches and that has served him particularly well over the course of his career.”While England have been able to count on Broad and Anderson, they have struggled for a pair of reliable Test opening batsmen since Strauss’s retirement in 2012 ended his partnership with Alastair Cook.But Strauss has been encouraged by the form of Rory Burns and Dom Sibley, whose partnership of 114 on Sunday was England’s first century opening stand in a home Test for four years.“I think Sibley and Burns at the top of the order are made of the right stuff temperamentally,” said former Middlesex left-hander Strauss.“They’ve both got quite quirky games, but very effective games. I think that is a big tick.”The ongoing third Test is also supporting the Ruth Strauss Foundation, which the ex-England skipper established after his wife died from a rare form of lung cancer affecting non-smokers in 2018.This year’s #RedForRuth initiative has already raised more than £655,000 ($844,000) compared to last year’s inaugural total of over £550,000 during an Ashes Test at Lord’s, even though there are no fans at Old Trafford.Strauss said everyone involved in the Foundation had been “blown away” by the public support, adding: “For us to have gone sailing past what we raised last year is almost beyond belief.”last_img read more

Youth football and rugby to get together

first_imgPittsburgh Harlequin Youth Rugby action. (Courtesy Photo)PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Football and rugby are getting together to promote player safety.A youth clinic featuring the Heads Up Tackling program will be held on May 31 as part of the final day of the Collegiate Rugby Championship.Former players and NFL executives will help educate coaches and young players on the value of safe tackling at the new Academy Fields located on the grounds of PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. All players and coaches are invited to stay for the day’s final Rugby 7’s championship match.NFL director of football development Matt Birk and former players Hollis Thomas and Ike Reese will participate.“I’m looking forward to learning more about rugby and its techniques, some of which I anticipate being useful and applicable to football,” said Birk, who won a Super Bowl with Baltimore in the 2012 season. “We at the NFL are open to learning and interested in any relationships or discussions that can help make our game safer.”Rhino Heads Up Tackling is a step-by-step protocol to safely teach the core principles of the skill, utilizing five fundamentals through a series of drills. The purpose is to reinforce proper tackling mechanics and teach them with a focus on reducing helmet contacts. It is a technique rugby long has used, significantly reducing head injuries and concussions in both 15’s rugby and 7’s, the game which will be part of the 2016 Olympics.“Both football and rugby have a common core of athleticism and teamwork,” said tournament director Donal Walsh, but most importantly they need to be safe and fun for all involved. We think this clinic will have great value for anyone interested in either football or rugby, and will educate both on how to play correctly.”The clinic will help conclude the two-day Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby Championship festival, the largest gathering of collegiate and high school rugby teams in America. Twenty schools will be competing for the national title.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more
