Dr. Tejaswini Manogna | FULL TRANSCRIPT:

And at the end of our lives, there shouldn’t be any point where you look back and say, I wish I had done that. There should be a point where you have to say that, I chased my passion and I did that.

Good afternoon everyone. Thank you, ma’am, for that generous introduction about me. All the respected dignitaries on the dias and off the dias. I’m extremely happy to be present here today. I’m deeply grateful to be bestowed this opportunity of being the keynote speaker for the 15th Global Health Care Summit, organized by AAPI, American Association of Physicians of Indian origin, who are one of the largest medical ethnic groups and the voice of 80,000 doctors in America of Indian origin, who are constantly in the pursuit and being committed to making quality healthcare accessible and affordable to the people of India.

I am totally bowled over by the extraordinary minds gathered here. And I’ve grown up idolizing and seeing amazing doctors like y’all and wanting to be like y’all someday. And today, I feel humbled to be standing here amongst all of y’all, among such socially responsible doctors who treat medicine, not just as a profession, but as a calling. A calling towards service, service of the nation, service of humanity as a whole. And also to stand amongst these young doctors, young men and women who are gathered here, who will be the torchbearers and who will go on to offer a beacon of hope to the healthcare industry.

Before I begin, I would like to take this opportunity to offer my gratitude and respect to each and every doctor who’s been part of the Covid-19 pandemic, who’s been working day in and day out as warriors and, you know, risking their own lives. Hats off to all of you all, and thank you so much. Patience, acceptance, tolerance, adaptability, compassion, empathy are the qualities which have been engraved in us, right when we choose to become doctors and took the Hippocratic Oath, which binds us, not just to the patients, our colleagues, and our profession, but to the humanity as a whole. I’d like to take a minute to appreciate the noble work done by AAPI during the Covid crisis for the fellow countrymen of India, providing oxygen concentrators, ventilators, high flow oxygen equipment, PPEs, medications and a fund to the PM Relief Fund and tele prescriptions and whatnot. A huge round of applause for AAPI.

It is so welcoming to see all the goals set by AAPI for India. Thank you, AAPI, for your commitment and contributions. And I must say, Indian healthcare industry has crossed many milestones by now. The recent National Family Health survey and of course, the Niti Aayog Health Index are definitely a proof to it; with total fertility rate coming down to 2.0, which is less than the replacement level, with decrease of infant and maternal mortality rate and initiatives taken by government, and of course, the vaccination drives. But there’s a lot for us to do to become the global healthcare leaders.

As a young medical graduate, allow me a minute to take my views on the current ongoings. Number one being the shortage of doctors and the huge demand and supply gap. I guess it’ll take like by 2030, we would need 20 lakh more doctors as all, you know, elderly doctors and senior doctors have been mentioning. And of course, the gap, you know, the postponements, the continuous postponements of NEET PG and UG has created a huge gap with the loss of one academic year for one batch. And of course, another batch being over worked up doing more than hundred hours of Covid duties. You know, either we have to get a top rank or have a reservation, or you know, be born to rich parents or, you know, compromise on your branch. So, this has been happening since a while and despite financial hardships, a lot of youngsters of India, they prefer studying overseas as, you know, not for the sake of money, but for the sake of better expertise and of course, the violence against doctors, which is high right now. And we need more research-oriented programs and fellowships, more of them which, you know, in the US, some of the fellowships which we are not even aware of here. But let me tell you, with necessary changes made, we the youth are ready to, you know, contribute our best to the nation and I’m sure, you know, with amazing doctors like you all, and we youngsters, and AAPI coming forward and the government coming forward, we are sure to see India as the number one healthcare leader in the coming days.
