Lucknow Medical Students Happiness Classes

Era Medical College of Lucknow comes up with a happiness department to support the pilot project on the wellbeing of students. If the project hits off, more courses will be provided to the students.

The Era Medical College, Hardoi Road, Lucknow has become the first medical college of the state with a happiness department for the well being of students and teachers. This pilot project was introduced in the previous week in order to provide peace of mind to the medical professionals and paramedical experts. ‘Attend Patients with a Smile’ is the aim of this project.

Currently, about 290 total students are availing this opportunity provided by the college administration. The distribution of students is as follows:

Department

No. of Students

Medical

150

Nursing

80

Pharmacy

60

If the programme runs successfully and shows progressive results, Era university officials will also include other departments in this activity. Classes take place thrice in a week to bring together medical professionals, students and spiritual leaders under the same roof.

Neuroscience Behind Happiness Classes

Here is the logic behind holding happiness classes:

  • Perception Enhancement
  • General Well Being
  • Positive Thinking
  • Frustration Control
  • Sympathy
  • Apathy
  • Altruism
  • Better Communication

The happiness class is an engaging space where students are taught through videos, experience sharing and storytelling. So this programme will last for a month and the grades given to attendees will be assessed by a scientific questionnaire prepared by experts. Answers to the questionnaire will be evaluated by a psychologist and later certificates would be distributed.

If this experiment project turns out to be beneficial for the students and staff, more of such projects would be initiated by the college for all the students. The university officials are also planning to start certificate courses and diploma programmes in happiness.

Other medical colleges must also take this into account and start a project for the inner wellbeing of the students. Activities of these kinds also train an individual to perform calmly under high pressure. Ramanujan College has launched a course in happiness. It is a six-month course which will address the rising stress issue among the students. It will also focus on the emotional well being of the students.
