By IANS, [RxPG] Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 7 - Nearly 3,000 students from Kerala's 10 private medical colleges will set aside stethoscopes, scalpels and fat medical books for five days next week to participate in an inter-college arts and sports meet.
KONZERIO 2008 is the fourth edition of the medical students' meet. This time, it is being held at the Dr Somervell Memorial CSI Medical College in Karakonam, on the outskirts of the capital.
'The meet will begin with sports events on Tuesday. Besides nearly 3,000 students, 500 teachers will also be here to ensure that the event goes off smoothly,' said KONZERIO coordinator Mohan Gopal. This event also expected to peak the interest of others in the medical field. Many students pursuing health nursing degrees are expected to put their studies on pause as well to attend.
The meet will include dance performances, skits and light music programmes.
'This is going to be a welcome break from our studies. It will be an ideal occasion for budding doctors to interact with each other and explore their talents,' said Mohin George, student in charge of publicity.
