Dr. Paramasivam Mahalingam, born in a small village of Tamilnadu, received his MBBS degree in 1977 from Government Kilpauk Medical College, MD (General Medicine) in 1983 from Government Stanley Medical College and completed his DM ( Cardiology) in 1986 from Madras Medical College at a young age. Following which, he was selected as the personal physician to the then Chief minister of Tamil Nadu, Dr MG Ramachandran. He was awarded fellowhip (FCCP) in 1992 and since then he has been the Consultant Cardiologist for top dignitaries and luminaries of India.
Hailing from the rural backdrops of Tamil Nadu, he keenly observed the inadequate medical services as he had a dream to provide medical care to the underprivileged population of this country. The first step taken to realize his dream, was the establishment of Santosh Hospital at Chennai in 1990. As a true visionary, he was never complacent on applauds and laurels he earned, rather was driven by a zeal to do more by establishing the Paramedical, Medical & Dental Colleges. His unquenchable thirst to impart quality medical education and healthcare services led to the establishment of Santosh University, a model Institution of unique values with its main trust in research and innovation in the field of Health Sciences. During his eventful journey, he has traveled widely across the globe, met and interacted with the pioneers in the medical field, and was conferred numerous honors and awards which included “Citation by the Senate of the State of Wisconsin” and “Award of Appreciation by the Indo- American Chamber of Commerce USA.” Dr. Paramasivam Mahalingam, has been instrumental in establishing a brand that is “Santosh” in the field of Medicine, Dentistry, Allied Health Sciences, and Hospitals both in the national and international arena.
