The Collins dictionary defines “Academics” as things that relate to the work done in schools, colleges, and universities especially work which involves studying and reasoning and “fest” as a festival or gathering devoted to a particular activity or interest.Would be pretty boring if we combined the two, right? Well, this year prepare to see academics become fun from the 4th to 9thAugust when The Academic and Research Council of Grant Medical College present to you AUXESIS 2018, the Annual Academic Fest that aims to expand the scope of learning outside the lecture halls.
Auxesis provides a platform for medical students of undergraduate as well as postgraduate courses to interact with doctors like Dr. M. B. Agarwal, Dr. Harish Shetty, Dr. M. Lele, Dr. Suchitra Dalvie, Dr. Col.
