Earlier this year,  Dr. Raj was awarded the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award presented by the Government of India, for his pioneering work in palliative care. Dr. Raj is Chairman of Pallium India and the India Co-Chair of our Palliative Care Fellowship Program in collaboration with M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. 

The Palliative Care Fellowship Program is a six weeks residential course in palliative course has been a huge success having trained about 120 candidates in the last 3 years. The scholarship is given free to a selected physicians and nurses in India to undergo the course. The data has been presented in both India and USA in scientific medical meetings, and recently received an award for the poster presentation in Annual Palliative Care meeting in Boston. The ultimate goal of this mission is to help underserved patients and families in India who are suffering from cancer pain and facing death.
Based on Dr. Raj’s dedicated work on terminal cancer patients in India and the role he played in changing morphine rules and accessibility to deserving patients, a movie named Hippocratic was made about him by an Australian group and shown in different cities in Australia. It was a huge success. He is currently touring the USA and will visit Houston in April.
