THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In an interesting turn of events, Governor Arif Mohammad Khan on Saturday appointed Dr. Mohan Kunnummal as the Vice-Chancellor of the Kerala University of Health Sciences. The appointment was made by overlooking the first two names listed by the State government.

The new appointment has been made following the retirement of Vice-Chancellor Dr. MKC Nair. Earlier, the government had suggested the names of Dr. Praveenlal and Dr. Ramankutty for the post of Vice-Chancellor. Mohan Kunnummal, who had served as the Medicine Dean at Health University, is currently the head of the Radio Diagnosis department at MES Medical College. The recipient of the state government's best doctor award in 2016, Dr. Mohan has served as the president of the Indian Radiological and Imaging Association. He is also a member of the Travancore Cochin Medical Council.
