The aim of undergraduate education is to produce competent doctors who will have knowledge, skills and the right attitude to meet the fast changing challenges of the 21 century health care.
In order to achieve this aim, Central Parks Medical College has devised a progressive MBBS course which will deliver the curriculum which, while conforming to PMDC requirements will use most of innovative development in medical education. It will have features like Problem based learning, integrated learning and student selected modules.
The educational program will be patient centered right from the beginning of the course and will have an element of exposure to the patient in both primary and secondary health care settings.
The other salient feature of this program is to get regular contributions of teachers from affiliated teaching institutions of United Kingdom who have international reputation in medical education.
