We were very sad to learn of the news that Dr Tapan Banerjee passed away recently after contracting COVID-19. Dr Banerjee was a physician at the Medical Research Institute in Kolkata and was a huge supporter of MRCP(UK) in India. He was one of the first Indian PACES examiners when MRCP(UK) opened its first centre there in Chennai. He subsequently examined in both Kolkata and Chennai. He was a warm personality and was held in high esteem by all those who worked alongside him.
We would like to express our sincere condolences to Dr Banerjee’s family. He will be greatly missed by his MRCP(UK) colleagues, including the many PACES examiners who worked alongside him on international duty in the past.
