TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODOLOGY

Department stress on teaching of basic fundamentals of internal medicine through various methods especially bed side teaching.

The following tools are employed:

  1. Didactic lectures: discussion a particular topic at length in an one hour lecture
  2. Seminars: conducted by a combined team of clinician, pathologist and microbiologist discussing a particular topic for two hours
  3. Clinical training: The clinical training of undergraduate medical students occurs in four phages:
    1. 3rd semester – 21 days wards posting in 2 batches of 25 students. Each bach is divided into three groups attached to 3 medical units.

Time: 9 a.m. – 12 noon

  1. 4th/5th semester – 50 days positing in 4 batches of about 12 students each at medical out-patient department.

Time: 9 a.m. – 12 noon

  1. 6th semester – 40 days posting in 4 batches of about 12 students, each batch divided into three groups attached to 3 medical units.

Time: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

  1. 8th semester – same as in 6th semester.
  2. During medical posting undergraduates will also be asked to attend specialised department like cardiology, neurology.
  3. Medical students are supposed to complete the logbook and signed by faculty after every clinical case discussion. Their logbook will be evaluated at the time of examination.
