Singapore: The awards are being held with an aim to recognise individuals, organisations, and initiatives that demonstrate outstanding and measurable contributions across the healthcare community in India.
The awards will celebrate the exceptional work being done by doctors in India, across the breadth of the Indian healthcare landscape-right from the metros to the rural towns of the country.
The categories reflect BMJ's values and include awards for ground-breaking research, inspirational leaders and innovations to improve patient care.
Dubbed the medical "Oscars", the event has become a key date in the medical calendar in the UK.
Mr Anand Ekambaram, managing director, BMJ India said, "BMJ aims to improve health and make a real difference to clinical practice worldwide. We are delighted to launch BMJ Awards India to honour courage, determination, vision, and insight in medicine across the country.
