My Journey at Susrut

Hello, I am Dr Priyansha Chatterjee and this is the story of my journey in Susrut Eye Foundation and Research Centre. I had just completed my PG and was completely at a loss as to which path my career is going to take. I believe its a moment of lull in every Doctor’s career path when we realise that now we have to make a transition from being students observing our teachers and mentors to actually being the Doctor who is solely responsible for her patients. There is a mixture of fear and uncertainty, wether we are equipped enough to face the real world. And with this uncertainty I joined Susrut as a Cataract fellow and trainee. However, my training period was nothing short of a life changing experience. From handling patients in the OPD, to performing simple to complex cases in the OR , from learning new things in Ophthalmology everyday to getting the opportunity to present in various state and national conferences, my journey was beautiful. Under the unmatched guidance of my mentor and guru Dr R.C. Paul I became mindful and extremely confident of the job I was meant to do. Today as I work as a Consultant in the Cataract Services of this esteemed institute, I can proudly say that I am fully able to undertake every challenge that comes my way. This institute is a gem to further one’s career and continues to give me endless opportunities to grow as an Ophthalmologist and a Cataract Surgeon. I am thankful to be a part of this family.

Hello I am Dr. Arnab Pal. I did my 2 year post-DO secondary DNB from this hospital between 2016 to 2018 and passed it in my first attempt. With all the latest ophthalmic equipment’s and infrastructure in place along with the up-to-date treatment protocols, this organization proves to be the perfect grooming ground for any budding ophthalmologist .Unmatched exposure to cataract surgeries and other ocular surgeries/procedures coupled with academically rich teachers make it one of the best DNB programs in the whole country .Regular academic sessions of almost daily frequency helps in covering up the lacunas of one’s academic knowledge .They are aptly supplemented by quarterly theoretical and practical assessment exams to go hand in hand with FAT exams of DNB curriculum .So if one aims to fulfil their dream of acquiring the coveted DNB degree along with one of the very best surgical hands-on exposure ,this is definitely the place.

I successfully completed my long term Paediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus fellowship from this organization under Dr.Anuradha Chandra, MS,FAICO. It was an enriching experience under Dr.Chandra both academically and surgically. Not only did I gain adequate clinical exposure in Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, I became confident in my abilities to diagnose and treat any neuro-ophthalmological emergency and disorders. I also became adept at medical management of glaucoma under the able guidance of Dr.Chandra.Surgical exposure during the fellowship was adequate with abundant supervised and independent paediatric cataract surgeries and squint surgeries. It also gave me the opportunity to observe the nit bits of paediatric glaucoma management from close quarters. The fellowship also provides it’s fellows enough opportunities to pursue active clinical research and encourages them for publications and presentations in national and international forums. Overall it is one of the best paediatric ophthalmology fellowship in the country at this moment.

My Journey at Susrut

I am Dr. Fariha Tahsin. I have done my fellowship in Cornea and Cataract from Susrut Eye Foundation and Research Centre under the guidance of Dr. Sayan Das. Opting for this fellowship has proved to be the best decision and the most important landmark of my life. I will always be indebted to this institution.

The working environment, hands-on exposure, and support of all the consultants during training at Susrut Eye Foundation is unmatched.

The fellowship comes along with a career planning program which is very helpful.

I’ll forever be most indebted to Dr. Sayan Das for the training I received from him, for all the opportunities he gave. I am very grateful for the patience he had during my training, and for the continuous support I receive from him even in my practice. He is undoubtedly the Mentor of my life.

To people who get very less surgical exposure during their post-graduation, I will highly recommend Susrut Eye foundation and Research Centre for fellowship cum career planning program.

My experience at Susrut is the greatest blessing of this life. And I am very proud and grateful to be a part of the Susrut family.

My Journey at Susrut

Hello, I am Dr.Sagnik Surya Das, currently working as a Consultant in Cornea and Cataract services at Susrut Eye Foundation and Research Centre, Kolkata

I completed my MBBS from Kasturba Medical College, Manipal and my Post-graduation in Ophthalmology (M.S) from Chennai, after which I did not know where to go. I was just starting out as a surgeon and I had so much to learn. Since Kolkata was my hometown, so I decided to come back here and completed my Fellowship in Cornea, Cataract and Anterior Segment surgery under the guidance of Dr.Sayan Das and Dr.Hari Shankar Nag at Susrut.
It was amazing how much I learnt from them and I still get inspired by them each and everyday.
We young doctors are given adequate clinical exposure and taught to handle all types of challenging surgical cases. Susrut has state of the art infrastructure and latest equipment and adequate patient exposure as a teaching hospital. It can be rightly said that Susrut Eye Foundation and Research Centre has one of the best fellowship programmes in the country in terms of surgical hands-on training.
I am very blessed and grateful to be a part of the Susrut Family.
