Ganendra Mallik

Dr. Ganendra Mallik graduated from Sir Nilratan Sircar Medical College and Hospital, previously known as Campbell Medical School in Calcutta, India. He started his medical career after finishing his residency in Surgery and obtained a master’s degree in Surgery from the University of Calcutta. Initially, he practiced in rural India, where he established himself in his own small hospital consisting of six beds, an operating room and a recovery room. He had a secure and large practice for several years and being a leading consultant surgeon, he had to travel to distant places and thus gained popularity as one of the best surgeons in that region. He also worked for charity in Dhyan Ashram, a Novitiate, and Juniorate of the Calcutta Province of the Society of Jesus.

After 10 years of private practice, his interest to further his surgical career compelled him to leave his country and go to the United Kingdom. Consequently, he earned his fellowship degree (FRCS) from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

He went back to Singapore as a clinical research fellow in General and Laparoscopic surgery in Tan Tock Seng Hospital, a 1400 bed hospital for about two years. Apart from his surgical practice, he also taught residents, nursing and physician assistant students from the US and medical students from UK, who came to do their electives. His keen interest in teaching led him to take up a teaching position at the International American University in St. Lucia, where he served as a professor in Clinical Medicine and as Chairman of Anatomy. He joined as a Professor of Clinical Medicine in St. Mathews Medical School located in the Cayman Islands and received an award for his excellence in teaching.

He attended many conferences in different countries and participated in an educational activity titled “Program for Educators in the Health Sciences.” He served in different organizations like YWCA, Old Age Home, as a part time doctor. He also participated in the 7th Gastrointestinal Anastomoses Workshop held in conjunction with the Asian Surgical Association and the 35th Annual Combined Surgical Meeting.
