This course covered topics, such as endocrinology, renal function, bone profile, and electrolyte balance. I had humbly reckoned that not many students would be interested in such a challenging course; but in the end, it turned out that 24 extraordinary students successfully completed the course. The enrollment of 24 students was indeed an amazing … Continue reading PGT Biochemistry and Diseases II
