"Need for Expert Medical Guidance for Military Selection & Training," Says Col. IVS Gahlot, Former CO, MH Khadakwasla
Col. IVS Gahlot (Retd), a former CO, MH Khadakwasla spoke to MVI on the need to incorporate the advice of military medical professionals as part of the selection & training procedure for soldiers & officer cadets.
"It is my personal observation that there is a serious lacuna in our training system where the professional advice and guidance of the dedicated medical authorities is either not being sought or optimally utilised, resulting in avoidable relegations."
