Abstract

The effective delivery of medical education to the aspiring students is a tough ask and it extends way beyond the delivery of knowledge. This is primarily because of the expectations of the community in terms of accountability, advances in the field of medicine, and the wide range of challenges which a student has to go through in the training period or the system has to face in terms of training number of students with the existing resources. In order to respond to these challenges, it is a must that the teachers keep improving their skills in all the roles expected of them and there arises the need to have a dedicated Medical Education Department (MED) within the institute. In conclusion, the constitution of a medical education department is a must in each and every medical institution. The department can play an important role in strengthening the teaching-learning, research activities, and improving the services profile of all the departments.
