Soon undergraduate medical students will get the opportunity to check and treat patients at hospitals from the first year of their enrolment. They could acquire clinical experience at hospitals only from the third year only, in the present scenario.
The new system would be in place from the 2019-20 academic session in all medical colleges across the country once the new curriculum is in place. Deelip Mhaisekar, vice-chancellor of the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS), told TOI that the Medical Council of India (MCI) was in the process revising the syllabus for the MBBS programme.
The new syllabus will have lessons on gender sensitivity, communication-skills, lifestyle diseases, behavioural sciences and medical jurisprudence. The new curriculum will allow students get clinical experience from the first year. The motive is to start doctor-patient interaction at the earliest. With inclusion of modern trends, the MCI has ensured that many sections those have become irrelevant in modern age be removed from the syllabus. Mhaisekar said the MCI has started training teachers on how to handle the new course material. Initially, 40,000 teachers across the country will be trained, who will later conduct college-wise training of other faculties. More than 1,200 senior faculties from medical colleges affiliated to the MUHS will receive training. Including private medical colleges and three deemed medical universities in the state, this number will be above 1,500.
“The sensitization of senior faculties results in further brainstorming and addition of new points to the curriculum. The final publication of the new syllabus is expected in November-December,” Mhaisekar said. Faculties in medical colleges have welcomed the proposed change. “The new syllabus has included some important points from the guidelines issued by the World Federation for Medical Education. Emphasis will be on skills and the examinations will be competency-based,” said a senior faculty from NDMVP’s Dr Vasantrao Pawar Medical College here.

Best thing about Vivek Gupta Sir is his selfless counselling. As I am already a BSC/ MSC, he suggested me to go to Philippines as I was able to get straight admission into MD and this finishes my entire course in 4 years flat. In any other country, it would have taken by 5.5-6 years. Ms Kanimojhi in Chennai office of GKWorks was equally supportive in coordination regarding documents, departure and all other formalities.
We live 100 Km’s away from Varanasi. The internet connection in our town is very weak and my parents are not that educated. For us, understanding the word RTGS was also very difficult. Thanks to Amit Pandey Sir, who is Gkworks Varanasi incharge, he helped us to do all small things. Going with us to get forex to helping us doing RTGS for fee payment, he was always there with us. He only helped us to apply for passport online and went with us to passport office Varanasi. Such support at ground level was provided by GKworks team both in Varanasi and Delhi.
My parents were not very comfortable to send me abroad especially my mother as I am the only son of my parents. I really wanted to become a doctor and thus approached Hemant Mishra Sir, director of Bareilly branch of GKWorks. He went out of his way to convince my mother. He would have come 5 times to my home, invited us to his office and home 10 times before my mother was finally convinced. It is only due to Hemant Sir in Bareilly that I am pursuing my course today. I wish GKworks and especially Bareilly branch all the very best to help many more students for their life dreams.
