Workshop suggests changes in medicine curricula

LAHORE, Sept 14: The basic and clinical sciences' subjects should be included in the curriculum for the undergraduate and medical students, medical educationists said on a workshop on Thursday.

The workshop on Review of Medical Education was organised by the University of Health Sciences (UHS).

The participants said the faculties of basic, para clinical and clinical sciences, while preparing the curriculum, should consider that the undergraduate education was to produce a general medical practitioner and not a subject specialist. UHS vice chancellor Prof Hussain Mubashar inaugurated the workshop and said the basic sciences' teaching should be relevant to the medical course and clear to the students.

He said the courses should illustrate principles for understanding the human health and diseases. He said qualified teachers should teach basic sciences and use combined teaching sessions on clinical problems. "It helps enforce basic concepts and highlights the basic sciences' relevance to clinical practice," he added.

The VC said the teaching methodology should be changed. The Community Oriented Medical Education (COME), the Problem-based Learning (PBL) and the Evidence-based Medical (EBM) should be added to the existing teaching and learning techniques, he added.

Mubashar also called for involving students in the curriculum development.

He said the UHS had revised the curricula of various programmes and all examination from 2007 onwards would consist of multiple choices and short essay questions. Daily Times
