Mysuru: JSS India International Initiative offers a bridge course to Ukraine returned Medical students at its JSS Medical College in the city.

Suttur Seer Sri Shivaratri Deshikendra Swamiji addressed media persons on the premises of the Mutt and explained about JSS India International Initiative.

“The idea sprouted after visiting north Karnataka where I came across students are facing trouble to get proper education. Most of them were preferring online classes, but there was a lack of laboratory facility”, said Swamiji.

Foloowing this we planned to organise phase wise medical bridge course to enhance their skills. However it is neither a recognised course nor we cannot give any certificate or degree regarding bridge course. We are preparing to start bridge course from May 6, said Suttur seer.

Ukraine and Russia returned students and some other students who are affected due to lockdown in China can also applied for the bridge course. Within 48 hours of announcement we have received 511 applications. We have well equipped lab which helps them to learn better. But we won’t allow them to treat patients as government won’t permit non-registered doctors to treat any person, Suttur seer clarified.

Pro chancellor of JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research (JSS AHER) Dr Suresh said “we have taken a global challenge and it is a new experiment. It’s a beginning of the new phase. We are taking risk as the world is facing war situation, natural calamities and we are checking the possibilities to respond to the world”.

We first conducted course mapping and designed the bridge course to give education for first, second, third and fourth year students along with internship students, Dr Suresh added.

Sunil Kumar who has been deputed as the nodal officer for the initiative said “We have also frameed Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and it will be soon released in official portal”.
