A highly interactive learning environment is a unique feature of the training programme. Students are provided basic training in basic medical and dental sciences, scientific literature, research and appraisal research methodology, biostatistics, evidence-based methods, computer applications, presentation skills and professional ethics. There are a large number of patients with varied pathology which our students get as clinical material. This gives them the confidence that is required to carry out independent speciality practice.
