We inherited British system of medical education about which Todd committee had said that it should aim to develop a student only as a broadly educated person, who needs to go for more specialised training before he can practice medicine!
Over the last 53 years, there have been murmurs of
discontent and a few cosmetic changes which were more like a patch-up than a complete white wash. One of the areas, which we have been persistently neglecting is the
training of medical teachers in educational technology because we seem to believe in born teachers rather than made teachers.
Let us join this movement to train the medical techers in art and science of medical education. Please register your name for an online teacher training programme to be initiated by indmedica.com.
Prof Tejinder Singh, Dean at CMC Ludhiana , who has a vast experience of conducting such programs will be coordinating the training.
