The Delhi Medical Council (DMC) has tied up with Bengaluru-based online platform Omnicuris, which will facilitate free online (Continuing Medical Education) programme. The primary goal of the tie-up is to improve the quality of healthcare through continuous re-skilling of medical knowledge of health professionals.
Launching the programme, Satyendra Kumar Jain, Health Minister, Delhi said, “Medical education is a continuous process and doctors should update themselves. Such an online platform can help them in the long run. Apart from hardcore medical subjects, the CME platform should include standard lectures on topics like healthy foods and exercise.
He further elaborated that doctors should utilise the free online platform as they don’t have to travel far to attend sessions and can be accessed from home. Jain informed that the CME platform will help to bring in a change in education.
“For a doctor, it is important to remain updated. As evidence-based medicine is changing daily, the online CME platform will help to know more about the latest trends happening in the medical field,” said Dr Arun Kumar Gupta, President, DMC.
The CME modules offered by Omnicuris are currently accessed by around one lakh doctors. The healthcare start-up offers free of cost courses in 10 specialities across medicine and has partnerships with over 35 medical associations.
