MBBS curriculum revised from 2019 academic session...

From August 2019, i.e. the next academic year, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has decided to bring about a change in the MBBS syllabus. After a gap of 21 years, the Medical Council of India (MCI) finalized the new undergraduate curriculum, which will focus on mental health, public health, as well as on communication skills that acknowledges the importance of ethics, responsiveness to needs of patients and their families. The new course will also focus on counseling patients and their relatives about organ donation and the benefits of the same, something which is not actively done at present. For new MBBS curriculum visit official website The new course has a set of ‘outcome-based’ classes including Attitude, Ethics, and Communication (AETCOM). AETCOM will be introduced to students’ right from their first year and aims to train students on how to communicate with patients and their relatives. As per the new MBBS syllabus, the new undergraduate curriculum regulations are more learner-centric, patient-centric, gender-sensitive, outcome-oriented, and environment appropriate.  MCI officials also believe that by exposing medical students to the various situations which may they face as medical professionals from an early point of time, AETCOM will help avoid miscommunication between doctors and patients. Students will also be taught about more mental health topics and will be trained on how to handle the same. In addition, a large emphasis will be placed on public health. Students will also be evaluated on their ability to handle patient relations, with particular emphasis on how to handle sensitive subjects and situations as well as obtaining a patient’s consent.  The revised syllabus will be implemented from 2019 academic session. At the time of admission, the students will also have the option of selecting the subjects they are interested in.
