On Tuesday, Delhi government and Omnicuris, a leading online Continued Medical Education (CME) platform, collaborated to impart free of cost online courses to its doctors to upgrade their medical skills.
This move was announced during a conclave that was inaugurated by Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain. “Leading online Continued Medical Education (CME) platform Omnicuris has collaborated with the Delhi Medical Council to provide free of cost online modules and courses to doctors of Delhi government to upgrade their medical skills,” a senior official said.
“The best part of this CME platform is that you don’t have to travel far to attend the sessions. A doctor can access the session by sitting at home and that also without paying for it,” Jain said.
Jain also suggested to implement chapters on exercise, food, soft skills and thought process in the modules as these will serve an important purpose for a doctor and their patients.
Delhi Medical Council (DMC), is a statutory body that was constituted in September 1998, as a byproduct of enactment of Delhi Medical Council Act, 1997 by the Delhi government. DMC is responsible for regulating the practice of modern scientific system of Medicine in Delhi.
“Now doctors of Delhi government can update their knowledge and get credit points without moving physically. In an era of rapidly advancing medical science, it is of utmost importance to keep your knowledge updated. Attending conventional CMEs takes lot of travelling, time and money. We are providing this service free to all doctors,” said, Dr Arun Kumar Gupta, president of the DMC.
Omnicuris, launched in 2016, is a leading online Continued Medical Education (CME) platform that has a plethora of partnerships with over 35 medical associations offering free courses in 10 specialties in the field of medicine.
