Medical Education With Village Adoption – Social Responsiveness For Rural Health
Keywords:medical education, village adoption, rural health , social responsiveness
Rural development is imperative if the gap between rural and urban is to be filled for the betterment of human development, global health, and social justice. The first rural medical institute of India took the bold step of adopting a village with each batch of medical students. The village community gets screened for diseases while students get to experience and study ground realities of rural health, whether preventive, curative, promotive, or rehabilitative at the patient’s door step. Medical students and clinicians learn to diagnose and go on to treat with low costs to patients. Just prior to their first winter vacation, medical students lived with mentors in their respective villages for two weeks. This stay included batch visits and helped keep track of community illnesses and health literacy and awareness. Merging social accountability, rural remote health, and community-based medical education incorporated the mandate of The Network: TUFH.
