To this the visiting Harvard doctor Dr. Daniel S Talmor added: "I am amazed to see the wonderful work, both in Medicine and Medical Research, being done at Amrita Hospital. It is evident that the doctors here are very good and absolutely committed to Amma's vision of using medical science as a tool of social welfare."

The whole of faculty, staff, and students from Amrita School of Medicine were addressed by physicians from Harvard as they shared key insights about problems such as Operating Room efficiency, the Medical Research framework and Post-Operative Monitoring.

The interactions also yielded an opportunity to collaborate in research, advanced training, and joint CME programs. The very first project both the institutions will be focusing on is going to be sepsis.

The Harvard team of doctors have proposed to start five-day certificate courses for PG students of Amrita School of Medicine in ICU Management, Quality Assurance, and Acute Medicine.
