Aspiring Doctors in Maharashtra to Be Taught Ethics, Communication Skills

February 26, 2015

(Times of India) – Aspiring doctors in the state will now be taught bio-ethics and communication skills in the classroom. In a first, the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS), which governs all medical colleges in the state, will introduce ethics and communication skills in the curriculum from June 2015. In a move to overhaul the exam pattern, the university also plans to introduce more scenario-based questions in the winter exam this year, where students’ diagnostic skills will be assessed in addition to their theoretical knowledge.
