Dr Anup Kumar, Professor and Head of Department of Urology and Renal Transplant, Safdarjung Hospital (SJH) and Vardhman Mahavir Medical College (VMMC), said, "We will shortly start a national online integration course in view of the huge response we got to the live telecast of surgeries conducted by the Department of Urology from across the globe."
Through national integration programme, VMMC and SJH will involve as many as 51 medical colleges across India for online education. The course will include the international live 3-D laparoscopic advanced surgeries of urological cancers and complex reconstructive procedures.

Most importantly, all medical colleges can take benefits from this unique online education programme. This course will be especially helpful for budding doctors, who can see the real-time unedited video and learn the process minutely."
