Dr Rahul Dwivedi – A Deserving Recipient of the 3rd Edition of Metropolis MedEngage Scholarship Programme


National: Metropolis launched its first edition of the “MedEngage Scholarship Summit 2018” on December 9, 2018, in Mumbai. At the 3rd edition of the MedEngage Scholarship Program & Summit 2021-22, it rewarded 122 young medical students (final year MBBS and MD/DNB) with awards and scholarship grants of total worth up to INR 90 plus Lakhs. Rahul Dwivedi is one of the students who has won the MedEngage Scholarship.

Rising from a very small city Mihijam in Jharkhand to one of the premier institutions of West Bengal, the Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, Kolkata, is the best thing Dr Rahul Dwivedi had achieved. He is now pursuing his MBBS internship. His mother is a housewife while his father was a local shopkeeper selling biscuits and bread, but during the lockdown, his shop was taken from him. His family has almost no connection with medicine, but his parents always supported him and inspired him to move forward on the path. His father is the only sole bread earner of the family and earns Rs 70,000 per year. With God’s blessing, Rahul was able to contribute to his family by giving NEET UG coaching to the local students for Rs 1000 per month.

He has won a scholarship at the 3rd edition of the MedEngage Scholarship Program & Summit 2021-22. With this scholarship, he wants to help his family financially and he would also like to enrol in marrow coaching for NEET PG.

Coming from a lower-middle-class family, Dr Rahul completed his Class X from the ICSE Board with 90.2 per cent and his XIIth from CBSE with 88 per cent aggregate (2nd position in school). He cracked NEET-UG the same year and entered his dream college – the Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research. He comes from a city where hardly anyone cracked any exam, so as a service during his free days, he taught many NEET UG aspirants from where he discovered teaching is the key to learning keeping this in his mind, he used to teach a few of his classmates before the exams times and it worked very well for him. He believes in sharing what he learns, and this enables him to recapitulate and reproduce things better and in an effective way.

MedEngage, driven by Metropolis Healthcare Ltd., intends to help deserving medical students in India through various grants, certificate courses, and research awards.

This scholarship programme aims to recognise the hard work of the medical students by giving them grants to conduct testing for their thesis, support internship programmes, and undergo training to prepare them for the technological changes in the field of medicine.
