Delivering his address on the occasion of the 32nd convocation of the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here, Azad called upon the medical faculty to intensify their research efforts.

The health minister observed that in clinical skills Indian doctors are acclaimed internationally but medical research in the country needs attention.

He pointed out that health indicators in south India were better than that in north, eastern and central India. He urged doctors to put more service in rural areas to enable health services to reach out to maximum people.

"I assure you that such a stint will provide immense value addition to your clinical experience apart from the sense of satisfaction derived from fulfilling a social obligation," he said.

While awarding degrees to 382 medical students who passed out from the PGIMER, Azad said the institute had fulfilled the role allotted to it.

"Over the years PGIMER has been able to fulfil the role allotted to it, particularly in providing high quality patient care to the poor people living in difficult to access hilly states and other states of the northern region of the country."
