  Dr. R.G.N.Sumponia Hartwig
Dr. R.G.N.Sumponia Hartwig graduated from Guntur Medical College in the year 1965. In the following years, she joined the Godavari Delta Baptist Mission Hospital, Narsapur and served as a Mission Hospital Doctor from 1965 to 1972. In those days,there were very few lady doctors who volunteered to work in such Agency areas. This tenure was a great learning time for her. She conducted numerous normal deliveries, instrumental deliveries and caesarean sections on her own. karthikeya
On the other hand, she was exposed to people’s desperate need for accessible and reliable medical care and the dearth thereof. Dr.Sumponia was caring and compassionate towards the people in need of medical treatment, and looked after the poor people in that area, especially in the department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
She returned to Guntur and joined the Department of Physiology as a Postgraduate student and tutor, acquiring her PG degree in 1982. Her thesis work was on intestinal motility. Soon after, she joined Gandhi Medical College, Hyderabad as Assistant Professor and remained until 1996. She was then promoted as Professor and Head of the Department of Physiology at Kakatiya Medical College, Warangal where she served until retirement in 1998. She was then invited to head the Department of Physiology at KVMV Medical College, Vinayaga Missions, Salem. She served there until 2001 after which she bid adieu to an illustrious teaching career of 28 glorious years and returned home to Hyderabad where she now lives with her daughter.
All through her teaching career she never forgot her formative years of experience in the Mission hospital. The zeal to teach and train medical students to be able physicians prevailed over the clinical practice. She took to teaching as a career and gained reputation quite early as a strict disciplinarian, yet being popular with the students. Her preparation for classes was meticulous, notes all inclusive, salient points picked up from many texts and journals, and most importantly, for the student, making it understandable and reproducible. Maintaining good command over the English language and same proficiency in Telugu, she comes down to the student’s level of understanding and communicates the “difficult to understand” physiology concepts with ease. Irrespective of her strictness attitude in classroom, she was very approachable when the students had doubts and needed further explanation. She set an example for her students in good conduct upholding values worthy of future doctors.
During her career, she was an examiner for Undergraduate medical students, Postgraduate students of Physiology, Nursing students, Dental students, Biomedical engineering students, BSc MLT students of the NTR University of Medical Sciences, Vijayawada and other South Indian Medical Universities. In this role too, she was held in high esteem by students and her peers as a fair and unbiased examiner of high repute. At many stages in her career, she was involved in planning and devising guidelines for teaching and conduct of examinations for the above said faculties in medicine. Her expertise was very valuable in nurturing fledging Physiology departments in AP and Tamil Nadu which later went on to gain deemed university status and established post graduate programmes also.
Even in the retirement period, her passion and love to nurture medical students led to her association with Medico Abroad firm which upholds values close to her heart, giving worthy students a precious opportunity to pursue medicine. Her advice and guidelines contribute to all crucial decisions of the firm.
