Ganga Hospital has been in forefront of medical practice and training since 1989 when it was started by Professor M. V. Daniel. Training is aimed at making residents capable of shouldering not only the practical responsiblities of running an orthopedic service but also the theoretical basis of orthopedics. To this end a structured Residency programme is followed which includes:
Daily ward rounds and teaching in the unit in which the resident is posted.
Daily clinical presentation of cases in wards and presentations on grand rounds.
Daily discussion of cases and individual topic as per the programme.
Seminars and review of literature in journal clubs.
Seminar/Presentation on topics of interest and controversies in management held once in a week.
