New Medical Curriculum in India-Radiology's role may increase
Medical students could soon have their first brush with treating patients in the first year of MBBS with the Medical Council of India (MCI) giving final shape to a revision of the undergraduate medical curriculum. This will be the first major overhaul of MBBS syllabus in 17 years. At a recent press conference in Chennai, Dr M Rajalakshmi, MCI's chief consultant in the academic cell said the conversion of the existing MBBS curriculum to a competency-based one is almost complete. In a move that has raised eyebrows, MCI is also applying for a copyright, following which the syllabus will be put up on its website. Radiology is likely to get a more central role, with possible introduction from first year itself.
