IAPC’s Celebration of National Doctors’ Day

The IAPC extends its heartiest warm wishes to all the Palliative Care Doctors on the occasion of National Doctors Day. 

On this occasion, we present to you a short compilation of our MD and DNB doctors of Palliative Medicine to recognise, encourage, motivate and introduce these young professionals to the larger palliative care community via the IAPC’s national platform. 

We sincerely hope that this project motivates our young professionals to develop and spread palliative care throughout the country and also inspire them to take on new challenges and improve the delivery of quality palliative care in the country. 

The IAPC once again acknowledges and appreciates all our pioneers and every other doctor practicing palliative medicine in India. Palliative care / medicine in the country would not be what it is today, if not for the efforts of each of you! 

Happy Doctors’ Day!
