Medical Curriculum in India to change says Health Minister

Union Health Minister in India proposes to change the curriculum for medicine by integrating modern and traditional practices and hopes to implement it within two years.

"Today's medical curriculum is outdated. We are working // towards integration of both the modern and traditional practices in the new curriculum. It is expected to come out within two years time," said health minister, Ramadoss during National Seminar on Ayurvedic Industry.

The minister will consult various ministries and get the curriculum together. The consultation process should begin in a few weeks. Korea has something similar and when asked if the curriculum would be like that of Korea, he said: "we are not going to follow any country's curriculum”.

The other thing that he proposes is setting up is four drug-testing laboratories at New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai at an initial investment of Rs 120 crore.

"A taskforce, which would look into different aspects of drug quality in the Indian system of medicine, would be headed by director general of CSIR R A Mashelkar," he said.

He added:” Our traditional medicinal system is time tested. Diagnostic science would be given more priority."

Recently the quality of traditional Indian drugs was under criticism from a few international health magazines recently and Ramadoss is particularly interested in putting in place a proper mechanism that involves some sort of certifications process for the drugs.
