As R.L Jalappa Hospital and Research Centre, teaching hospital of Sri Devaraj Urs Medical College, a constituent unit of Sri Devaraj Urs Academy of Higher Education and Research commemorated the National Doctors’ Day, it also underwent a change in its leadership. In a simple ceremony, Dr. Azeem Mohiyuddin, a renowned ENT surgeon handed over the charge of Medical Superintendent to Dr (Ms). Sheela S.R, Head, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is an excellent teacher, astute clinician, seasoned administrator and happens to be the first woman superintendent of RLJH & RC in its history spanning over two and a half decades. The transition has been smooth as she was also doubling up as a Deputy Medical Superintendent in the hospital. She has her role cut out. Apart from providing the routine care and services of this busy tertiary care hospital including COVID Care, she would be committed to making the infrastructure ready to face the onslaught of a possible third wave of COVID.
