Dr Surekha Kishore
It is indeed a great honour for me to have been appointed as the Executive Director of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Gorakhpur. Being part of one of the Institutes of National importance (INIs) in India and established by an Act of Parliament along the lines of AIIMS New Delhi, AIIMS Gorakhpur aims to create a center of excellence in medical education, training, health care and research.
At the outset, I would like to thank Prof. Sanjeev Misra, Director and CEO of AIIMS Jodhpur, who had been instrumental in initiating medical services and academics along with monitoring the progress of the institute. His persistent hard work and efforts to bring the institute to its present state are commendable.
As an Executive Director of this institute, my role will be to facilitate students to become one of the best scholar, doctor and researcher. A collaborative and integrated approach towards teaching, learning and research will be emphasized. Regular upgradation of skills of doctors and healthcare providers shall also be part of the above. I also intend to provide comprehensive medical care to the community which will be affordable and acceptable. Implementing patient safety strategies will be ensured. Community services and outreach efforts to meet the health needs of people will be given priority. Participation of local leaders and various healthcare providers will be encouraged to optimize the health care services. Providing best of services at levels of primary, secondary and tertiary medical care, will be pivotal in building the institution. I also wish to take initiatives for organizing wellness programs for all members of AIIMS Gorakhpur. With all the limitations and constraints posed by COVID-19,I strongly believe that the team of AIIMS Gorakhpur shall put in all the best possible efforts for delivering the services. I believe that consistent support of the faculty, staff, students and the government will certainly make all the desired goals attainable. I wish and hope that with Almighty’s grace and hardwork of our team we would succeed to achieve the best possible in all spheres.
