Professor& Head, RUHSA Department, CMCH
She being the only doctor, by 1902, Dr. Ida Scudder had only seen 12,000 patients
Frustrated at the thought of so many patients remaining outside the ambit of medical services, she began setting up road side clinics (1906) – taking services to villages and hamlets outside Vellore.

“Everyday we are faced with a host of new experiences we had never dealt with and will unlikely see again..”
“What shocked me was the hard work, perseverance and commitment of the people who work hand-in-hand as one team. I realized that the life and work in rural areas with the less privileged and no great facilities is ‘no less’ to the work done in a tertiary hospital”
Thank You for your patient attention
