MBBS First Year students participate in Poster Making Competition at HIMS Jollygrant

Dateline Dehradun: A poster making competition was organized for MBBS students at the Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences (HIMS) Jollygrant. The competition, based on the theme “Recent Advances and Emerging Pathways in Physiology,” saw participation from 150 students.

The Physiology Department of the Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences under Swami Rama Himalayan University (SRHU) organized the poster making competition for first-year MBBS students. Department Head Dr. Abha Srivastava explained that the competition aimed to test the students’ understanding of the human body and educate them that physiology is the study of how the human body functions. It describes the chemistry and physics behind basic bodily functions, how molecules behave in cells, and how organ systems work together. This helps in understanding what happens when the body is healthy and what goes wrong when one falls ill.

Dr. Srivastava mentioned that 15 groups were formed from 150 students, with each group comprising 10 students. Panelist judges Dr. Sanjay Das, Dr. Barnali Kakoti, and Dr. Saurabh Kohli assessed the participants based on content, presentation, and design.

The event was graced by the presence of Dr. Jyoti Dwivedi, Dr. Brijesh Purva, Dr. Yogesh Saxena, Dr. Anupama Nautiyal, Dr. Deepak, and Dr. Ramkumar.
