  Medical Education
  India has a wide disparity in the distribution of health professionals and health services not only between rural and urban areas but also between various states reflecting a wider variation. All the teaching hospitals and medical colleges are located in urban areas where only 30-35% of the population lives. During the last 60 years, the present medical education programmes have failed to address these twin situations as judged by the health outcomes. Therefore, it is obvious that our health system needs revamping to address the changes required in upgrading the existing medical colleges so as to be in tune with the astounding progress of science and technology in the field of medical science. And at the same time address the rural medical education by developing innovative tracks in existing colleges for establishing rural medical education programs specific to our needs and training rural physicians within the existing medical colleges in the country.

Some of the issues under consideration of National Knowledge Commission are:
  • The constraints, problems and challenges relating to curriculum, teaching, infrastructure, administration and access.
  • Mechanisms for raising average standards and creating centres of excellence, including a revised accreditation system.
  • Methods of attracting and retaining talented faculty members.
  • Measures to promote and sustain the research tradition in medical colleges and teaching hospitals.
  • The strengthening of professional education in para-medical disciplines.
  • The creation of synergies between medical education, public health and delivery systems.
  • The development of education relating to alternative systems of medicine.
