Experiential Learning for Social Accountability: Dhanvatari Seva Yatra by Government Medical College Bhavnagar Students and Faculty
Keywords:Northwest, Experiential learning, Social Accountability
The Northwest area of India has a very poor health infrastructure due to disparities in the area, and the approach and availability of health care professionals. Students and faculty of different health professional streams from Bhavnagar Medical College join every year in a mega health camp known as Dhanavatri Seva Yatra for the last 15 years. This activity is conducted without any financial support from the government. Transportation is taken care of by volunteers and accommodations arranged locally. Every year for seven days they work in different areas of the northeast to serve the community. This helps to inculcate social accountability in students as explained by Kolb's experiential learning theory.
