An innovative weekly training programme initiated by the Bharati Vidyapeeth medical college in the morning for family physicians has received tremendous response and has helped general practitioners keep pace with new trends in medicine. Now, a day-long "General Practitioners Continuing medical education (CME)" programme will be held on February 24, in which around 500 practitioners from in and around Pune will participate.
The CME will focus on evidence-based learning with case scenarios focusing on active learning as the family physicians are going to be the co-ordinators for all 10 sessions that day. "Our aim is to help upgrade the family physician who caters to a large chunk of patients as primary care doctors," says Dr Sanjay Lalwani, medical director of the Bharati Vidyapeeth deemed university medical college and hospital.
In view of imparting and updating the medical knowledge of general practitioners, Bharati Hospital started "a morning lecture programme" from December 7, 2011 every Wednesday, with an average attendance of 75 doctors. Till now 60 lectures have been conducted by senior faculties from various departments including super speciality.
