At the third conclave of vice chancellors of health universities of India, organized by Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) the highly debated matter in the meeting was to introduce a subject on Medical Ethics as a subject for MBBS students.
This led to turning the code of ethics and professionalism values to a proper subject, which shall also be evaluated through an exam.
To get approval on this action, Association of Health Universities of India are soon to appeal to the Medical Council of India (MCI) in written, with a proposal to make professionalism and a code of ethics as part of the MBBS course. They also want that a proper examination pattern should be conducted along with related assessments.
Though majority of Medical universities impart lectures on ethics, but very little is interpreted in actually among students. Hence, this new course on medical values and ethics is soon to be introduced and incorporated in the syllabus across Indian medical colleges.
