Advancing paediatric surgery through education and research

Ravi Kishore Barla

Scholarship: 2016 BAPS Travelling Scholarship

Current Position: Consultant, Paediatric Surgery, Christian Medical College, Vellore, India.


Apart from the valuable time I spent at the BAPS conference 2016, Amsterdam, the traveling scholarship was a unique opportunity to get a glimpse of the whole process of reaching out and fostering the upcoming surgeons in the international community.


This experience and the friendships I have taken back will have a permanent effect on me, for my training, my patients and the trainees I will be taking care of in the long run. In my endeavor towards this aim, I’m currently pursuing a clinical fellowship in Paediatric Urology abroad and will be returning to add value to the services at my alma mater.


I really thank the committee members for embracing this set of youngsters and for making sure they have a great time during the conference.
