The Journey

dnb pediatrics blog founder

Ajay Agade

Founder, Author


Hi & thanks for joining me in this tiny world of Pediatrics which was created to keep a self log of academic activities during my residency, starting with notes I prepared for the exam.


The idea was, if someone comes across and finds it useful, all the better!

Somehow the project kept growing during my journey of training from Pediatrics to Pediatric critical care all the way to pulmonology & LTV with help of like-minded people.
