The foundations that make for a great doctor are firmly rooted in basic science, clinical experience and in-depth research, and lie at the heart of curriculum implementation. The undergraduate MBBS and postgraduate courses follow the RGUHS and MCI guidelines.
The faculty employ a wide array of progressive interactive learning formats. Traditional learning formats, such as in-class lectures, practical classes, seminars, small group exercises, continue to play an important role in student learning. Through the Medical Education Unit, faculty are trained and encouraged to implement new methods of blended learning, such as e-learning modules with student self-assessment and opportunities using standardised patients and simulators.
Three main concepts are incorporated throughout the undergraduate years:
- The scientific basis of medicine
- Focus on patient care
- Special emphasis on the unique skills essential for all doctors, such as communication, medical ethics, and professionalism)
Our Community Outreach Programme is organised at the cusp of the first and second year in order to expose students to learning beyond the classroom and exposes them to the issues faced by various populations in the community.
The students also have the opportunity to participate in individual short research projects under a guide.
Our students have taken the initiative to organise a scientific platform called “Insight”. Under this programme, various clinic pathological integrated sessions, simulation workshops, clinical skill sessions like resuscitation etc. are conducted with medical students from various colleges as attendees.
Learning aspects of hospital safety, waste management, safe medication communication are constantly applied. Postgraduates undergo special training in research methodologies and statistical analysis which facilitate them throughout their careers.
The Skill labs offer training through simulation and tissue dissection which emphasises their basic scientific basis.
We are involved in the education of superior physicians and specialists, and our college emphasises the basic scientific disciplines and ethical and professional concerns necessary to achieve this goal.
