Texila Medical Student – Not Just a Proud Moment – But A Vital Role in Supporting a New Entry into the World

Medical Student delivers baby during Guyana Defence Force’s (GDF) Emergency Flight

“We educate ourselves to lead comfortable lives in the future and get jobs to ensure the same. However, each speck of knowledge that we gain is meant for a purpose bigger than ourselves.”

             

A Guyana Defence Force’s aircraft was transformed into a delivery room on May 27th 2017 as a baby girl anxiously made her entrance into the world mid-air. In the statement given by the GDF Forces, the baby was born exactly at 05:48 pm during a scheduled flight out of Fairview; an Amerindian Village in the North Rupununi.

According to the sources, the mother had developed complications as the infant was in the breeched position and so a request was made for her to be air dashed to the city. Fortunately, a medical student from Texila American University was on board, who spearheaded the delivery and transported the mother to the city for emergency care and helped her come out of the complications.

The baby and mother were then transferred into the Georgetown Public Hospital for better treatments and wellbeing. Pilots, Major Mohinder Ramjag and Patrick Nicols were elated by the emergency medical service rendered by the Student of Texila American University and are also happy that both mother and child are safe.

This is the first known mid-air delivery, in recent times, that occurred on a GDF aircraft, the Forces said.

The GDF Forces appreciated the emergency medical service rendered by our Student and concluded that she continues her good work to help save many more lives.

Mr.Saju Bhaskar, the Founder & President of Texila American University quoted that “What we act is a result of what we have learnt. We train our students to give up their best in  dealing with the real-time incidents like this. We are proud of students for their confidence in shining in their chosen field and we wish them all the very best in their journey of becoming healthcare professionals – be it a physician, nurse or a pharmacist to serve their community.”

Doctor is a word, when heard by anyone can immediately develop respect in the heart. Medical profession is considered a noble profession and the doctors have been always compared and equated next to God.

It would be a childhood dream for most of the people to become a doctor but due to non-availability of required funds / Limited Availability of seats and for various other reasons the decisions are changed or postponed.

Message from the Founder & President – 6th Anniversary of Texila

Dear All,

“We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so, we have to know how to act.”

I would like to recall the journey from the inception till this moment, every single moment turned out to be milestones and step stones for us. A journey worth recalling, in 2010 when we decided to start a medical university, we decided Guyana as our campus location for various reasons, we were not sure about the reception and acceptance from global student’s community as it was not the trend.

But, things changed for us – students, especially parent’s community across the globe accepted not only Texila American University but also Guyana as a destination. The growth was eventual and the student count as well as representation from the countries kept increasing which motivated us to deliver beyond the committed levels. I would proudly say “we are offering one of the best medical education than anybody else in Americas”.

As any start up organization across the world, we also had initial problems like infrastructure, facilities, faculties and many more. Now, as we have crossed 6 successful years (as of October) of Commitment and Recognitions, I would like to thank every single student and their parents of our initial batches for the confidence they showed in us and for the patience. I vow our success to every single staff here for having stood with us in our tough times.

We continue to improve our teaching, learning and research facilities so as to create the best environment for our academics and students. “Success is never an accident – it is the outcome of Meticulous Planning, Planned Execution and Executed Monitoring” I strongly believe that Right People in Right Positions can create wonders for us and I am proud of my team today and I am confident that the phase of growth will be multiplied in the upcoming Years.

Let me thank you all for your support and insight as we move forward.

3rd Graduation Ceremony

A Doctor’s Voice

Sleepless Nights
Big Bright Lights
No fixed timings for me
At times I forget that I have a family behind
Just to make sure you are
happy and safe with your family!

Texila American University hosted its 3rd Graduation Ceremony with the Motto “TAU Graduates going beyond the challenges of change through Quality Education” at on 10th December 2016 to roll out the successful batch of Healthcare Professionals. Thirty-Five (35) Students from Guyana, Nigeria, India, South Africa, Uganda, Canada & Syrian Arab Republic were graduated from the University as Doctors and Nurses to serve the community.

It is a privilege and an honour to be hosting the graduation ceremony for our Third Batch of Graduates. We would like to express our gratitude for choosing Texila as a preferred partner for their career.

Since inception in 2010, TAU has witnessed immense growth. Every year “Graduation Day” is the only day for us which signifies the achievement and satisfaction of entire years of effort.

Our Chief guest, The Honourable Prime Minister of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana, Mr. Moses Nagamootoo, who presented the Graduation Message to our Students said “ the student being responsible healthcare professionals, should uphold the humanity and mankind to the society and treat this profession as noble one and should be committed to serve the community”

The Keynote Address was delivered by Mr. S.P. Saju Bhaskar, Founder and President of Texila American University. Speaking on the occasion he thanked all of the families and friends in the audience who are present. Recalling the famous saying by Nelson Mandela “Education is the best weapon you can use to change the world”, which is very true. Being educated does not imply to be a matter of proud unless that education is productive with regard to the necessities of the surrounding people and society. A literate on paper and degrees could not be called an educated person, unless he knows how to implement the learnt knowledge. Mr. Saju Bhaskar advised all the students to take the next steps in their journey towards building their career and future.

The Plaque of Appreciation was presented to the Chief Guest by the President of Texila American University. The Degrees were awarded to the Graduates by Hon’ble Prime minister of Guyana.

The welcome note was delivered by Dr. A. Anand, The Executive Vice-Chancellor of the University. Speaking on the special occasion he quoted “Medicine is never an easy path, but as I have always said, the best things in life never come easy. You all came to this country, far from your home, with dreams and hopes of one day, being called a “Doctor”. Today, your dreams are realized and your journey does not end; rather, it begins.”

We are proud of every single professional who graduated from our University and we are confident that our students will become “Responsible Citizens” “Responsible Healthcare Professionals” & “Responsible Life Savers” for their community, country and world.

Think Healthcare Education - Think Texila American University

“Texila Raises Bar in Education Provision in Zambia”

Texila American University (TAU) Group has pledged, through TAU Zambia, to push beyond the next level the quality of excellence in education provided in Zambia.

In so doing, over the last couple of weeks, TAU Zambia had been finalizing and consolidating its in-country operations prior to the January, 2017, inauguration of the newly acquired 25,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art campus in one of the Capital City’s most exclusive suburbs.

This consolidation has seen the finalization of the acquisition of TAU Zambia’s new property and the recruitment of highly qualified academic and support staff to run the university when it opens in March, 2017.

TAU’s Founder and President, Saju Bhaskar S.P, made it emphatically evident that TAU’s desire for educational excellence that supersedes what currently is the standard in Zambian Education could only be achieved through the expanding and maximising of Zambia’s educational capacity.

zambia-meet

The President made this clear when he paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Health, Honourable Chitalu Chilufya M.D., at his offices on Tuesday, 25th October, 2016.

In plainly outlining how TAU, through TAU Zambia, would expand and maximize Zambia’s educational capacity, the President assured the Minister that TAU Zambia would bring together both local and international expats that would provide unparalleled and experience-drenched services, which, coupled with the quality education and infrastructure for which the TAU Group is synonymous, would maximize the aforementioned capacity.

“The high quality infrastructure that TAU Zambia’s facilities will provide in the form of state-of-the-art laboratories, classroom and libraries, and the Educational Tourism that will be generated by Zambia through the university’s aim of not only catering to Zambia but the rest of the region as well, will generate revenue for the country,” he said.

The President further unquestionably elaborated to the Honorable Minister that TAU Zambia was more than capable of not only exceeding the requirement standards set by the Health Professions Council of Zambia (HPCZ), but in setting a benchmark at which all other medical institutions in the country will be judged.

Admissions Open for March 2017 Intake – Apply Now

And speaking at the same occasion, Dr.Chilufya stated that the Ministry would facilitate partnerships between TAU Zambia and local hospitals for the successful training of medical doctors who graduate from the university.

The President acknowledged that the Ministry of Health’s facilitation of partnerships with local hospitals on behalf of TAU Zambia and, more so, his pledged personal capacity facilitation, would allow for a much larger partnership for TAU Zambia beyond the more than the five (5) hospitals that are already keen to partner with the university.

The School of Medicine, Department of Nursing, Department of Pharmacy, Department of Public Health, School of Business, Information & Technology, and Education, are among the inaugural schools for which the university is currently enrolling and that will commence in March, 2017.

Furthermore, the President acknowledged that pushing educational excellence in Zambia would require a two-pronged approach that is anchored on one end with the provision of quality education, and on the other end with the generation of revenue for the country to, thus, bolster and encourage more investment in the sector by the Government.

meeting

It is for this reason that when the President paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Higher Education, Honourable Nkandu Luo Ph.D., on Wednesday, 19th October, 2016, the main talking point was Educational Tourism and how TAU will capitalise on this revenue generating venture for the betterment of the Zambian republic.

Educational Tourism, which is one of the fastest growing areas of the travel that is part of the, as of 2014, US$7.6 trillion global tourism industry, refers to any programme in which participants travel to a location as a group with the primary purpose of engaging in a learning experience directly related to the location (Rodger, 1998: 28).

The main idea behind this concept is that travel is as much about self-improvement as it is about relaxation. Therefore, as students come to Zambia to study, they not only travel within their destination country of choice but throughout that county and even to neighbouring lands.

The goal here is to widen the educational experience so that university students do not only know their own culture but also that of at least one other nation.

MCI Recognition: A crucial Factor for Medical Studies Abroad

Choosing your studies or the university to do your Medical Studies is not as easy as you think and it takes longer than you expected in the first place. If you already have an idea or actually know what you want to do in the future and want to build a career on it later, the decision is not that difficult. As far as Medical Studies are concerned, the students normally select universities from Philippines, Ukraine, China and Russia for the reason being cheaper and American for-mat of teaching. Out of which Philippines has 63% of people speaking English, 5.48% in Russia, 8% in China & 2.9% in Ukraine.

Cheaper course fees, no constraints for eligibility and Assuming the certificate of Global Recognition are some of the facts that attract the students to choose University in these countries. But the ground reality is that Only less than 5% of them clear their local medical council exams – the rest 95% of students and their future will be a big issue.

But there are several crucial factors you should consider when selecting to study in a University abroad.

How to select a university?

  • A university which has registered in the local country of presence
  • A university with good infrastructure and lab facilities
  • A university with highest level of reputation and student satisfaction
  • A university with in-house hospital facility or at least tie-up with good hospital for clinical rotation
  • A university which has history of students clearing local council medical when the students graduate and head back home
  • A university which has good hostel facilities and food cuisine of various countries
  • A safe and secured environment for peaceful learning
  • A country with good chill-out places for weekend outing from routine studies

mci-blog

The most crucial factor is the Local Medical Council Registration of the University. Texila American University is listed in Medical Council of India (MCI) which allows the students to practice as a Doctor in the Home country upon completion of the course and clearing the Screening Test conducted by MCI.
