Abstract

Competency Based Medical Education (CBME) is the need of the hour in Indian settings and even though, the decision has come late, it is a step that needs to be appreciated and requires support from all the involved stakeholders for its successful implementation. However, it would be wrong to say that the traditional curriculum has offered no benefits for the students or faculty members. In conclusion, traditional curriculum has played a significant role in the development of medical graduates for more than two decades in India. Even though, some crucial aspects of professional growth have been ignored, it is still good enough to support the launch of CBME in India. As one among the faculty member, we have to take all the stakeholders on board and plan accordingly and at the same time not forget traditional curriculum, but build upon the advantages it has brought into the delivery of medical education.
