AIIMS Delhi establishes committee for MBBS teaching reforms

All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Delhi has constituted a committee to investigate the reasons why final-year MBBS students rely on coaching centres instead of attending MBBS classes at the institute. The committee has 19 members from different departments of AIIMS Delhi and the panel is entrusted to suggest reforms to stop this practice.

As per New Indian Express report, AIIMS has issued an official order that says, "suggest reforms in the pattern of teaching, training, and evaluation of the final year MBBS students”.

As per the report, the decision was taken in a meeting chaired by AIIMS Director Dr M Srinivas . “It has been found that the attendance of students in the lecture classes is poor. Rather they are found more interested in coaching classes meant for the preparation for the PG entrance examination. Besides, in the last few years. the method of teaching and learning has changed significantly with a larger participation of online methods and simulation-based training," reads the order copy.

"There is a necessity to modify our current pattern of teaching, clinical training, and evaluation targeting long-term capacity building and develop a validated model for nationwide implementation," it added. 

 "The MBBS is not enough these days and students start preparing for the Postgraduate residency programmes right after enrolling in the undergraduate course. However, with time and changed patterns, the entrance exams have become tougher," said a senior AIIMS official.

"The questions asked in such exams are more clinical and demand in-depth knowledge from the applicants. The MBBS course and self-study provide limited exposure to clinical aspects and that is why students look for coaching to score better rank," added the official.
