It has been a wonderful experience in being a part of the MGM School of Biomedical Sciences. The two year course of Biostatistics has not only enhanced my theoretical knowledge but also expanded my practical approach. It gave me an opportunity to practically apply the statistical skills in the actual scenario. Dealing with and helping the students and experts in the statistical approach in their respective research has helped me understand the subject more thoroughly. Getting hands on experience in teaching and making the students understand my subject as well as the Statistical Software has not only deepened my knowledge in my area of expertise but have also groomed up my teaching skills. Special thanks to professor and Head of the department of Biostatistics Dr. Rita Abbi. She has being my inspiration throughout my journey in MGM. Also, I am very thankful to the Director Dr. Mansee Thakur and all the professors who have taught me. They have not only helped me grow academically but also as an individual. I am happy that I took the decision of pursuing the course in MGM.
After pursuing MBBS, I decided to pursue Master in Public Health, from MGMIHS. During my final year of MPH, I got the opportunity to join as a tutor in Department of Community Medicine, MGM-Navi Mumbai. I feel privileged to have gotten this opportunity in my final year of masters. School of Biomedical Sciences, MGMIHS, has always been successful in providing me with a varied platter of opportunities as a student and even as a professional. They have always focused on overall development of the students. My gratitude always lies towards Dr Mansee Maam (Director, SBS, MGMIHS) and the entire team of SBS, for promoting my inner talent and opening up several opportunities for me.
Dr Saili Jadhav— Tutor
I completed my Undergraduate Education in the form of a Bachelor's degree in Cardiovascular Perfusion from MGMSBS and am forever indebted to this institution and its faculty for the training and knowledge it imparted upon me as a student. It's state of art infrastructure and unorthodox teaching methodologies give an edge off the usual experience a UG student can ask for. A place where I got the freedom to explore ways to help serve a patient for the ultimate good of an extended quality of life. MGMSBS is my parent institute and as a former student , it feels as a second home.
Jai Javeri— Bachelor's in Cardiovascular Perfusion
I was first sceptical to join MPH as I was the first student to enrol for this course in MGM School of Biomedical Sciences. But Dr. Mansee Thakur, Director MGM School of Biomedical Sciences, Navi Mumbai and Dr. Prasad Waigankar HOD Community Medicine, MGM Medical College, Navi Mumbai assured me that this would not hinder in the process of learning. The 2 years in this course exposed me to the field of public health in various ways. I experienced all what I had learnt in our textbooks during our field visit. Our professors were kind enough to entrust the role of managing the entire UHTC/RHTC during our monthly postings. As a Supervisor and Co-ordinator, we were involved in the implementation of National Health Programmes in the community. We were also encouraged to attend the weekly seminars for Community Medicine Residents at various Government Medical Colleges in Mumbai which motivated us to work even more. Courses in Biostatistics, Research Methodology and SPSS has helped me improve my knowledge in statistics which thus, helped me in my Research. I am happy for the decision I made then, due to which this course could be implemented. My heartfelt gratitude to the entire teaching and non-teaching staff of MGM School of Biomedical Sciences, Navi Mumbai who were always there for us whenever we faced any difficulty.

It was 2019 and our Director Ma'am had Planned to visit Kanha Shanti Vanam. We have no clued how it would influence our lives. I went there as a young boy, little did I know that this whole experience will change my life. At Kanha, we learned meditation at a very different level. It taught us about the divine energy and also the use of our subconscious mind. We won several prizes in sports, play and quiz and many more. I started to concentrate on academics on a level. I discovered that my mind was free of ripples and I could open up more. All around me was a healthy competition and a Beautiful world. The confidence level and positivity of mine was at the peak where the negative had no chance to take on us. It was the best experience of my life.

Atharva Dehadraya— B. Optometry student
Myself Pranav Kolge, last year me and my batch mates visited Kanha Shanti Vanam, but the truth was we went there just because of our Director Dr Mansi madam took us. So I went there as a young inexperienced boy who had no idea about my life. We did have a few meditation sessions in our college in which honestly I used to sleep. But when I stayed in Kanha, it was a very different experience. I was very much confused about my choices in life be it a career or any other thing. After visiting Kanha in Hyderabad, I visited more similar sessions here in Navi Mumbai with my friends. The more I attended the sessions additionally I was developing in all aspects academics, life & whatnot. I became much more of a social person. Now I have more friends from different walks of life.
Kanha Shanti Vanam changed me as well as my batchmates. It taught us a true value of friendship, teamwork and cooperation. After months I saw changes in me and friends as well. We won several prizes in sports, quiz competitions and even in the drama which we never had a dreamed of. All thanks to our director madam for taking us to Kanha Shanti Vanam, believing in us and motivating us to face various challenges.

In the month of February 2019 our institution gave us an opportunity to Visit KANHA SHANTI VANAM i.e. Global Heartfulness Meditation center with a state of art infrastructure.
We were all been taught and imbibed how meditation in the heartfulness way can change a person’s life and find a purpose of living. Personally sharing about myself. After visiting the global center, i used to practice a daily meditation of 15-20 minutes. And after practicing it for a year and a half, i myself analyzed what all changes have been seen.
Since then, I’ve been volunteering in two NGOs
- Purpose of living.
- Clarity of thought.
- Perspective for humanity.
Were we mainly contributing our manpower for hunger, education and moral values for the society.
- Robinhood Army
- Switch India organization
