We at SAMSA believe that in order to truly help others, it is essential that we ourselves are not only knowledgeable but also are able to correlate all the textual knowledge in our clinical practices.
Thus Classroom to Clinics program was born.
Under the expert guidance of a panel of faculty members, we have high hopes for this program to give rise to skilled doctors in the days to come.
