Department of Health Professions Education

Bhaikaka University has created a Department of Health Professions Education with effect from 10th October 2020. As the number of medical and allied health sciences institutions is growing by leaps and bounds in India with an increase in the total intake of students for each of them. This has to be supplemented with a number of required teachers, who are trained in the teaching-learning process. To establish and maintain International Standards in Health Professions Education, there is a need to have academic programs in this field in order to generate a workforce of trained teachers in different institutions.
