Alumni Events

In the nineties, when our nascent Institute was beginning to acquire some freshly minted Alumni as pass outs, SGPGI Alumni day used to be celebrated on the eve of the Convocation. Three such events had been organised during the tenure of Dr. Mahendra Bhandari, the then Director. Customarily, a luminary would be invited to give a talk and this would be followed by an alumni dinner in the guest house lawns. After a long hiatus our Director Prof. RK Dhiman and Dean Prof. SK Mishra, re initiated and revived the idea, and an Alumni Cell Committee was formed. As one the first activities they organised the Alumni Day on 13th December,2020. The event was conducted primarily in an online manner, and was chaired by the Director along with the Dean and it was moderated by Prof. V K Kapoor. 227 Alumni joined in via zoom link and 176 via live you tube account. There were invited talks by some of our noted Alumni of SGPGI i.e. Dr. Amarender Puri, Gasteroenterology, Dr. Ashutosh Tiwari, Urology, Dr. M Naveed, Medical Genetics and Dr. K Nagaraju, Immunology. All the invited speakers were formally introduced by their respective department chairs i.e. by Prof. VA Saraswat, Prof. Aneesh Shrivastava, Prof. Shubha Phadke and Prof. Amita Agarwal.

The speakers spoke about their professional journey, which began at SGPGI, their achievements and their memorable moments. The illustrious speakers ended on a promising note expressing the desire to remain in touch and to help out the younger generations of Alumni in any manner that they can. These talks were followed by a Heritage walk - a video presentation and a very nostalgic interactive session. Trees were also planted in the name of some senior alumni including the Director.An Alumni park is also planned in the Campus in the coming years.
