    Shokat Manzil Dodhpur Aligarh





I am working as a Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, JN Medical, College, AMU, Aligarh. After completing my graduation (MBBS) and post-graduation (MD Obs. & Gynae.) from this institution, I was appointed as an Assistant professor in the same Department. My life till date traces rich experiences.

Effective Emergency Obstetric Care (EOC) especially in resource poor settings has been my priority.  My thrust areas are high-risk pregnancy and Gynaecological oncology.

          I have taken various specialized training namely NACO UNICEF PPTCT training at Grand Medical College and Sir J.J. Medical College Mumbai, Ian Donald Diploma Ultrasonography in Obs. & Gynae., Trainers of Trainees (TOT) for PPIUCD Training at Safdarjung Hospital New Delhi, Laparoscopic  Tubal Ligation Training Lucknow, NACO Training for a specialist for HIV care & treatment, Kolkata etc.
I have supervised more than 20 MS/MD Thesis and have 50 Research Papers in various National / International  Journals of repute to my credit. I have been an active participant as Guest Speaker, Panelist and Chairperson in various conferences/ Workshops/ CME/Training Programs held across the country. I
have the privilege to organize IInd MIDTERM CME of UP Chapter OBGYN at my alma mater and various other Workshops and CMEs from time to time. I am a proud FOGSI fellow and have membership of various learned bodies like the National Association for Reproductive and Child health of India (NARCHI), Federation of Obs. & Gynaecological Society of India (FOGSI), UP chapter of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Indian Medical Association & Pharmacovigilance Society of India.

      Apart from my duties as a clinician & surgeon I am involved with teaching with equal vigour. Inspired by what celebrated physiologist William Harwey said - I profess to learn and to teach anatomy not from books but from dissections, not from the tenets of Philosophers but from the fabric of Nature- I give high impetus on improvising continuously on the techniques of medical education and training. PowerPoint presentations, OSCE, 3D models, animations, classroom demonstrations is what I employ to make learning more effective. Cultivating Medical Ethics, emphasizing the importance of Evidence Based Medicine in young minds, and providing skills and hands-on-training is what I wish to achieve as a teacher. I have a flexible approach to work and espouse team effort in approaching disease prevention and management.
