71-Year-old Indian Doctor Receives Super Specialty Degree from a Medical University
It's very rare that 71-year-old receives a degree for completing a super-specialty medical course. But septuagenarian M.A. Bose will receive his degree for an M.Ch in neurosurgery from the Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical University in south India on April 30.

He joined the course at Madras Medical College in 2010. "The selection committee interviewed him and after finding that there was no age criteria for the course, decided to admit him. However, he did not receive the stipend that is given to other students as he was not eligible," said Jhansi Charles, registrar of the university.

During this course, he was staying was with his son in Arumbakkam. At the end of 2013, his son passed away. "After this happened, I became very depressed. I could not concentrate at all for a year. It was only in my third attempt that I managed to pass the exam," he said.

Dr. Bose completed the programme in 2014. "I am happy with my practice. Once every few months perhaps, I will get a neurosurgery case. It will be interesting," said this grandfather of eight.

Dr. Bose has practiced as a general surgeon and ENT specialist in Aruppukottai, just over 50 km from Madurai. He had done his MBBS and MS from Madurai Medical College. He owns a 12-bed clinic in Aruppukottai.
