In order to boost this activity, MCI has been conducting Faculty Development Programmes through selected Regional Centres, since July 2009. These Centres are located at institutions which have trained manpower in Medical Education Technologies (MET).

The MCI strategy involves preparation of training modules by experts followed by training of faculty of MCI Regional Centres for Education Technologies. The Regional Centres will train the faculty of Medical Education Units of colleges under them and finally the Medical Education Units will train their colleagues and facilitate the implementation of these modules with the help of Regional Centres.

Objectives to be fulfilled in setting up a MEU as per MCI guidelines include:

  • To sensitize teachers about new concepts in teaching and assessment methods
  • To develop knowledge and clinical skills required for performing the role of competent and effective teacher, administrator, researcher and mentor
  • To assist clinicians to acquire competency in communication and behavioural skills
  • To update knowledge using modern information and research methodology tools

Keeping these directives from MCI in mind, a Medical Education Unit (MEU) has been constituted in PKDIMS, with Principal, Dr. Gopakumaran Kartha as the Chairman and Dr. P. K. Ramakrishnan, Associate Professor in Anatomy as the Coordinator. The MEU of PKDIMS will be coming under the MCI Regional Centre at Government Medical College, Kozhikode.
