Latest Announcements for AP AMBICON 2020




The medical education in India has undergone an important change in the year 2019. The erstwhile Medical council of India (MCI) released the “Regulations on Graduate Medical Education (Amendment), 2019” and started implementing new curriculum changes in the form of competency based medical education (CBME) from the academic year 2019-20 onwards. The new undergraduate medical education programme was designed with a goal to create an “Indian Medical Graduate” (IMG) possessing requisite knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and responsiveness, so that she or he may function appropriately and effectively as a physician of first contact of the community while being globally relevant.

Many of us would have undergone training in the revised basic course and the Curriculum implementation support program (CISP) at our respective MCI identified nodal centres. However, this new exercise needs much more than training by trainers to understand and contribute to the new goals set by our national authorities. Interactions at various levels including student-teacher and teacher-teacher interactions form an important component of implementation of such novel training goals.

Keeping this in mind, AP AMBICON 2020 has taken an initiative of conducting this virtual conference with CBME as the main theme. This conference aims to focus mainly on the competencies assigned to Biochemistry which would have been just mentioned once or twice as examples during the group activity during the training programmes. In this conference, we wish to provide an in-depth understanding of the various components of the new curriculum as it applies to Biochemistry through various lecture sessions and the workshops planned so that it will help the faculty of our state in a methodical implementation of the GMER (Amendment), 2019.We are planning to bring in the experience of the senior faculty and to design the sessions to be lively in the form of guest lectures, workshops, debates and panel discussions. Exchange of ideas during the panel discussion and the debate would pave way for recommendations which can be further submitted to the National Medical Council (NMC) through our association in further fine tuning of the curriculum. Apart from focusing on the competency based programme for MBBS as per GMER (Amendment), 2019, we shall be having online oral and poster presentation sessions which shall provide a platform for the faculty and students to present their research works.

We are confident that this virtual conference will stimulate you  towards more effective implementation of  CBME in your institutions and bring out  a competent IMG, the immediate challenge in front of all of us. Though we miss you in person at the conference, we hope to create a long-standing impact in the years to come.

I request all the faculty members and students from the state of Andhra Pradesh to participate and contribute to this event and make it a grand success.
