For the very first time, Mayo Clinic is coming to India with a Comprehensive Medical Simulation Instructor Development Course which will prove to be an invaluable contribution to the healthcare landscape in India. The DY Patil Deemed to be University, Navi Mumbai, has teamed up with Mayo Clinic to help bring to the fore the importance of Medical Simulation-Based Education.
