Role of Simulation System in Medical Education in Indian Scenario: Are We Future Ready?

Author(s):Shalini Kapoor*

Indian medical system dates back to the era of Charaka and Sushrutha who were considered as the masters of indigenous medicine. Medical education has evolved quite considerably since then, and with this transition phase, it is necessary to update the existing method of knowledge acquisition. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has put forth a key educational dilemma further threatening the whole education system. The medical/dental schools have suspended all the clinical postings and theoretical didactic classroom teaching with the fear of mitigating viral transmission. The barring of live patient contact during a pandemic has proven to be potentially disruptive to medical education. This pandemic would lead to a substantial loss of learning time and a probable depreciation in the confidence and clinical skills of students. Novel education strategies need to be planned to optimize educational endeavours. Technological advances have the potential to substitute in-person lecture and clinic based teaching during this pandemic. So it is peremptory to update methods to disseminate knowledge among medical school trainees.
