A sustainable healthcare framework implies maintaining both the current and future quality of healthcare through balancing social, environmental and financial constraints. Health care faculties in Medical Universities hold a professional obligation to yield ‘sustainability-oriented’ healthcare leaders, having a sense of eco-accountability, environmental justice, and intergenerational resource equity. For this multipronged diverse approach, the most cardinal contribution, for a sustainability continuum, by the current generation of professionals is to develop a ‘sustainability mindset’ for the healthcare leaders of tomorrow. The ripple effect of the ‘sustainability mindset’, thus created will be the key factor, to traverse through generations to come, for individual health, healthcare systems and most importantly for the planetary health.
