The students of RMC and doctors of Government General Hospital, Kakinada, explained the various branches of medical science like cardiology, pathology, gynaecology and gastroenterology by showing live and artificial models of the respective organs.

The organisers also dwelt at length on the various methods of surgeries that gave a fresh lease of life to those suffering from ailments of the vital organs like the heart, liver and kidneys. An audio visual presentation of some rare surgeries done in the GGH was also given. A team of doctors led by MS Raju spoke about the surgical aspects of the human bodies. Stalls were also set up by the para-clinical wing of the GGH.
