Government Plans to Revise MBBS Syllabus, Consults MCI

Professor Jagadish Prasad (Director General of Health Services) revealed that the Government of India is planning to revise the syllabus of MBBS course. For this purpose, the central government is holding consultation with the MCI (Medical Council of India). The government and MCI are likely to take steps through which MBBS students will not have to study all aspects of medical science in detail, apart from what they want to specialise in.

Adding further, Professor Jagadish indicated that the new syllabus is likely to be framed within the next one and half years. He was of the opinion that students at MBBS level need not study 10 different surgeries. A good knowledge of treating common diseases is enough for MBBS students apart from laying emphasis on subjects of pathology, physiology and anatomy for a strong foundation.

While interacting with the faculty members and doctors at the National Health Programme organised by SOA University, Professor Jagadish highlighted the issue of antibiotic resistance which has become popular all over the world. He urged the MCI to enable all medical colleges constitute pharmacovigilance committee for monitoring the use of antibiotics. He quoted that ‘antibiotic resistance is dangerous than cancer as it cannot be treated and will kill’.

Speaking on specific diseases, Professor Jagadish pointed that the leprosy is still prevalent in states like Bihar, Odisha, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh despite the attempts or efforts taken by the government to eradicate it. A door to door campaign is necessary to identify leprosy cases. He revealed that 5,100 new leprosy cases had been registered in Odisha recently.

He concluded that people must practice Yoga, regular exercise and stay away from smoking and consume alcohol to avoid non-communicable diseases.
