Stressing that doctor-patient relationship itself becomes part of the therapeutic process, Vice Chancellor of Pondicherry University, Professor Chandra Krishnamurthy said while treating patients, doctors should always be conscious that they are not treating the body alone, but also the concerns and doubts in the minds of the patients.  

Delivering the convocation address at Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College and Hospital (SMVMCH), Krishnamurthy asked doctors to reduce the anxiety of patients by giving them confidence and hope. “Patients should feel that the doctor cares for them because a doctor is like God to patients.”

She said “You have to decide as to what you want to be, your aspiration for the future. You will require the desire from within to perform the task at hand with excellence.  Work with single-mind devoting to achieve your goals.”

As many as 140 students were awarded degrees at the graduation day function.
