Ascension-A Step Above-2022

Theme – Blending Ideas with experience 

Ascension- A Step Above” is an annual meet  organised under the aegis of Dr. Manu V.L. Kothari the  honorable chair of Medical Humanities and the division of Medical Humanities in association with the student body of Seth GS Medical College.
Medicine is a humanitarian service. It focuses on the study of understanding the ailments of human and their treatment. However, down the course, we might  have lost touch of the emotions of people who form the core of our practice. At the Division of Medical Humanities  of Seth GSMC and KEMH, we believe it’s important for medical professionals to completely understand a human not only from its physical aspects but also social, emotional, cultural and mental aspects through fine arts, theater, music,  philosophy, comparative literature, etc.
Thus, these conferences are dedicated to compiling multiple people’s perspectives on sensitive issues so as to answer the difficult questions one may come across in life or create new questions on existing practices thus promoting imaginative nonconformist qualities and practices.
The motive of these Conferences is to offer different ways of thinking about human history, culture, behavior and experience which can be used to dissect, critique and influence healthcare practices and priorities.
At Ascension, we try to achieve our motive through workshops which enhance curricular as well as extracurricular intelligence of students.
Events like Quizzes and Symposium are conducted to evaluate the importance of understanding History of Medicine in our present career.
Debate and Panel Discussions help the audience to ponder over the contrasting aspects of complicated topics in relation to medical profession.
Online Competitions inculcate  art and development of literature among students.
Thus we aim at an overall understanding, development and growth of the mind not limited by books.
