A Beautiful Mind & Butterfly Effect | Ep – 10 | The White Coat & Other Stories

Warm greetings!

Wamique, aka the Grand Old Man of AIIMS, is an unconventional success story. His journey of battling bipolar disorder for more than a decade, emerging as one of the wisest individuals around, is enriching and inspirational. The Literary Secretary of his times, he has immense knowledge of literature, cinema, history, and politics- a conversation with him usually leaves one spellbound. Often seen interacting with juniors and engaging in honest discussions, he has agreed to share his experience and insights about mental health.

Aditya, currently a resident in Paediatrics, is the cheery, ever-beaming fellow, exuding energy and warmth. The academically brilliant Delhiite loves teaching juniors during postings and otherwise. A Quora celebrity, he is a regular in literary circles, with a fierce passion for quizzing. He shall talk about his stint with mental illness, making us realize that good academic performance does not provide immunity against such illnesses (and neither does mental ill health provide immunity against academic performance and success, one can overcome it with grit and perseverance).

The session is moderated by Dr Siddharth Sarkar, Associate Professor at Department of Psychiatry, AIIMS, New Delhi, and Arshit Narang, an undergraduate at AIIMS, New Delhi, both of whom think passionately about improving mental health among students. We hope that these narratives provide some hope to those suffering alone in silence, and ease the pain and mental anguish in these troubling times.

Medical Students’ Wellness: Challenges & Initiatives

Medical Students’ Wellness: Challenges & Initiatives

The Indian Association for Social Psychiatry (IASP) is delighted to organize a half-day CME on “Medical Students’ Wellness: Challenges and Initiatives”, in a virtual mode.

It is our pleasure to invite you for the IASP CME 2021 to be held at AIIMS, New Delhi on 10th July 2021. Medical students are a valuable human resource for our future. Perceptions of stress and distress among medical students/ residents may have serious professional and personal ramifications.

A galaxy of eminent speakers with hands-on experience in handling Students’ Wellness will address the issues related to causes and manifestations of adaptational challenges and suggest individual and systemic solutions for improving health-care scholars’ wellness.

We promise you a highly stimulating scientific program with opportunities of interactions and perspective taking. The CME will address issues related to antecedents, concomitants and consequences of stress on medical students’ wellness from several perspectives and will seek solutions that enhance individual as well as systemic adaptations.

We are planning to organize the CME in a virtual mode to enhance participation from delegates from all around the nation while maintaining physical distancing. Looking forward to see you in the IASP CME 2021.
