Mangaluru lass Dr Rashmith R bags six Gold Medals in BDS-1

Mangaluru: Dr. Rashmitha R, a BDS student from SDM College of Dental Sciences and Hospital Dharwad, daughter of Rathnakar Kunder and Sudha Rathnakar from Mangaluru were looking forward to walking on stage on Thursday to collect the six gold medals she had been awarded in the Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) she was pursing there. It is the highest number of Gold Medals in BDS from RGUHS for a single individual. But due to the COVID pandemic, she could not attend the traditional convocation ceremony held on 25th June 2020 at Bengaluru at the Nimhans convention center presided over by the state Governor Vaju Bhai Vala.

“I could not attend the convocation, It would have been a momentous occasion to receive the medals in front of a huge audience and more importantly, my parents”, she said.

Dr. Rashmitha knew she would pursue medicine when she was in class 10, where she was impressed by gynecologist Dr. Meenakshi Bharath. She secured a seat in BDS and gradually came to like it. There’s nothing like hearing the words “There is magic in your hands”, she says about excelling in her practice. A school and college topper, Rashmitha is a first-generation doctor born to the Rathnakar Couple.
