Collaborations & Joint Venture
As part of its on-going efforts to raise the bar of medical care in India, MIOT International has partnered with leading healthcare institutions and research centres across the world.
The Indo-German Orthopaedic Foundation (IGOF), co-founded by Padmashri Prof. Dr. P. V. A. Mohandas, seeks to promote friendship and collaboration between Indian and German orthopaedic surgeons. The foundation has, over the years, conducted several courses, symposia and seminars across India, on various subjects related to joint replacement surgery, spine surgery and trauma. To date, more than 28 courses have been conducted.
IGOF has also awarded fellowships to over 62 Indian surgeons who have honed their skills at leading orthopaedic centres in Germany.

The Indo-British Health Initiative (IBHI), co-founded by Dr. Prithvi Mohandas, Joint Managing Director, MIOT International, works to promote scientific collaboration between healthcare personnel in the United Kingdom and India. It accomplishes this by encouraging innovation in medical technology, awarding fellowships, and enabling partnerships between members of the medical community in both countries.
IBHI, launched in December 2011, has conducted several symposia on a national and international level in key healthcare areas for both countries – Orthopaedics, Gastroenterology, Diabetes and, most recently, Oncology.
IBHI also awards scholarships and prizes to enterprising young people in healthcare to encourage training, innovation and transfer of knowledge.
