Changes in curriculum

The Union Health Minister said the Government proposed changes in the curriculum and medical practice. "We need doctors with practical experience in rural areas. They should have comprehensive knowledge of social issues also." The concept of research must be introduced at the undergraduate level, encouraging students to present papers at the continuing medical education programmes, which would be made compulsory. Doctors must have 60 hours of CME to reregister every five years. He assured the association of financial and technical support for conducting the programmes.
