  1. A Student Council in any Educational Institution is very important. In a Medical Institution a Student Council can be very instrumental in generating new ideas and suggestions that can attribute so many short term and long term benefits not only for the students but also for the patients that utilize the services of the Institution.

    Any matters relating to health are vital to the community that depends on the effectiveness of the Medical Institution. The students have so many bright ideas to express and share with the authorities. Many of these ideas can be difficult to compromise due to financial or administrative constraints, but the ideas should not be ignored at any cost. The ideas should be nurtured at all levels and effective measures have to be taken into consideration so that the patients get the ultimate benefit from these ideas.

    We wish best of success to the Student Council in all their deliberations on future improvements of the Medical Institution. Let the patients get the best possible satisfaction, and let the Medical Institution make their ideas become a reality sooner or later, depending on various circumstances.
