Public Lecture Series

            
The CMC Vellore COVID PUblic Lecture SEries (COVID PULSE) were instituted with the aim to:
 

a) Provide clinicians with up-to-date knowledge on integral aspects of COVID-19 management to inform clinical care and improve patient outcomes 
b) Bring together doctors from various backgrounds so that questions regarding the feasibility of interventions and/or barriers to implementation across diverse care scenarios are examined and addressed 
c) Provide ideas for further innovation and 
d) Help clinicians design or refine protocols in the context of available resources.
