I am a pediatric surgeon by training but have been working most of life with mission hospitals in rural areas.
I became interested in family medicine since I believe that it has the ability to transform the health care of a nation.
I also started India's first distance education and tele-medicine department for a medical college.
Currently I am the CEO of ICMDA or the International Christian Medical and Dental Association. ICMDA brings together Christian doctors and dentists of 70 member countries.
I am married to Shalini, a public health specialist and we have 3 grown up children.
I am based in Vellore, India and am very interested in leadership development of young medical students and doctors.
