Prof. A. N. Malaviya

Prof. V. R. Joshi and Prof. A. N. Malaviya are the teachers of rheumatology from whom we learn a lot of science and practice. Although many of us do not have hands-on experience of learning rheumatology from them, we keep on listening to them at various conferences, seminars and workshops. Every word and action by them accounts for gaining more knowledge and insight into rheumatology practice. We practice rheumatology considering them as our Guru and implementing their ideas and views in clinical practice.
