Doctor's Profile

Dr. Farishta Hannah D. Singh


PG resident, Department of Community Medicine

Reg. Number: 71074


I got the opportunity to pursue my MD in Community Medicine at HIMSR after clearing the NEET-PG 2018 entrance exam. As a resident, I got the opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills by engaging in numerous health-care activities undertaken at the peripheral health centres. I could hone my research skills by being a part of various research projects being undertaken by the department with governmental and international organizations such as WHO. The training of the undergraduate students provided an opportunity to develop my teaching skills as well. The multi-faceted exposure provided in this institute has enabled a holistic development in my learning curve.
