Dr. Amarinder Singh Malhi has become the second Asian and Indian and the first from Punjab to receive a Doctorate of Medicine degree in Cardiovascular Radiology and Endovascular Interventions from the AII India Institute of Medical Sciences in Delhi.
After completing his MBBS, he took MD Radiodiagnosis from Dayanand Medical College, Ludhiana, and eventually went on to be accepted as DM in the department of cardiovascular radiology and endovascular interventions at AIIMS.
This DM course began in 2016 at AIIMS and Malhi was only the second student to get enrolled.
Currently, assistant professor at AIIMS Delhi in the department of radiodiagnosis and intervention radiology, Malhi advocates strengthening of the medical academic structures at home to prevent the ongoing brain drain.
“I stayed back in India because I was conscious of my duty to the nation. But many students leave. For that to stop, medical and health educational infrastructure must be strengthened,” Malhi said.
