FOUNDATION COURSE AS ORIENTATION

The Foundation course based on ‘Vision 2015’ of MCI (2010) is being conducted in the form of an extended orientation for the MBBS students at admission for 2 weeks since 2011. The Goal is to prepare them to study medicine effectively. The objectives are to make them aware of the MCI and PIMS goals, National health policies and the health care system of India. They will be familiarized with the history of medicine and role of research for its progress. They will be introduced to the medical college and hospital, with an overview of the 4 and half of studies with the special emphasis on the first year studies. During orientation they will be briefly introduced to first aid and BLS, patient safety and bio medical waste disposal and universal precaution and vaccination. Interpersonal relationship, team work, medical ethics and professionalism, communication skills, time management, stress management and learning methods will be taught to them with special emphasis on ICT in education. These sessions are interactive and interspersed with sports and extra circular actives. The needs for training in language and computers skills are elicited and arrangements made for ongoing classes.
 

EARLY CLINICAL EXPOSURE

The first year medical students are given adequate exposure to actual patient care. This helps to achieve the following objectives.

1. Recognition of the relevance of the basic science subjects taught in the class room, 

   thus making the learning “contextual”

2.As adult learners, the experience of early clinical exposure motivates them to learn

   and integrate the ethics and professionalism in the doctor patient relationship.

3.Under Community Medicine, the exposure to society and the health system makes

   them aware of the social accountability in medical education.

INTEGRATED TEACHING

Integrated teaching is a part of the teaching learning schedule of PIMS since 2011. There is both vertical and horizontal integration in all the three disciplines. These sessions are case based so that competency based learning occurs in all the three domains of knowledge skill and attitude
 

SKILL TRAINING

The students in the IVth and VIth Semester are given structured skill training in IV Therapy, Sample collection, Hand washing, and Biomedical waste disposal.

 

The Interns have a 2 day Orientation where the above are reinforced. They are further taught general procedures such as insertion of urinary catheter, infection prevention, patient safety and  communication skill. During the period of Internship, they undergo  a 2 day intensive training on CPR and BLS in the skill lab"
