Dr. Kusuma KS.
I have done my MBBS from Sri Siddhartha Medical College, Tumkur and M.D Biochemistry from
M.S Ramaiah Medical College, Bangalore.
I was awarded the “BEST OUTGOING POSTGRADUATE STUDENT AWARD” from the
Dept of Biochemistry, M.S Ramaiah Medical College in the year 2009.
I have been a part of a small non-registered organization called VIKAS during my MBBS days.
It was very interesting to work for children and other social causes during our undergraduate days.
We did it with the little pocket money that we could save from what was given to us by our parents.
After a gap of about 6-8 yrs after my MBBS, as I loved to spend time with small kids, I got involved in teaching small kids
(Balvikas of Sri Sathya Sai Organization) at a local bhajan centre in Bangalore. It was not only teaching but a lot of learning for me during the process. During the same time I learnt Reiki (Energy Healing Process – Level 1, 2 & 3A) which has fulfilled my spiritual thirst.
Teaching is my passion and I have loved it every bit. Working in the lab and coming in contact with the patients in the hospital has fulfilled my dreams of serving the society.
During my tenure at M.S Ramaiah Medical College as an Assistant Professor in the Dept of Biochemistry, i was involved in various research projects which have an impact on the community. I have guided a student for ICMR project. I was also a Co-guide for the Belgian student who came here for internship program. I have four research publications in various National and International journals.
Currently (since 2018), I am working as assistant Professor in the department of Biochemistry, JSS Medical College and continuing my passion of teaching and serving humanity.
