The Medical Council of India is all set to revamp the country’s 58-year-old curriculum in medical education. The process includes incorporating the latest medical technology and teaching aids in subjects such as anatomy, pathology and biochemistry at the MBBS level and introduction of new specialities and super-specialities for post-graduation and beyond. The new curriculum and new courses are in the last stage of being finalized.
Furthermore, the council is also planning to obtain a copyright for the curriculum by June 2015. The curriculum will be distributed to medical colleges, which will be required to conduct teachers’ training for the next one year, and by 2016, medical undergraduates can move away from the curriculum established in 1956.
