Amritsar: Dr Sujata Sharma has been appointed the new Director of the Medical Education and Research Department, as well as been made Registrar of the Punjab Medical Council by the government. They indeed come as accolades and make her a woman of distinction. Dr. Sharma gets promoted to the two prestigious positions after having headed the Department of Gynaecology at the Government Medical College, Amritsar.
