  1. 3.     Brief Introduction to Workshop

 

Role modeling and mentoring associated with classical approach to professional apprenticeship has long been a powerful tool. This approach alone is no longer sufficient for the development of a medical professional. The domains of attitude, communication and ethics therefore need to be taught directly and explicitly. The Medical Council of India (MCI) has decided to implement Attitude and Communication module (ATCOM) in all medical colleges across the country over the coming years. A group of experts constituted by MCI have developed ATCOM module along with a facilitators’ guide. There are new elements in the ATCOM module which will be implemented across the entire duration of the MBBS course. Successful implementation of the ATCOM module is expected to be the key to the transition to competency based medical education (CBME) program envisaged by the MCI.
