{ Posted on 10:45 PM by V.C.Dave }

(1)            General
Internship is a phase of training wherein a graduate is expected to conduct actual practice of medical and health care and acquire skills under supervision so that he/she may become capable of functioning independently.

At the end of the internship training, the student shall be able to:
i.         diagnose clinical common disease conditions encountered in practice and make timely decision for referral to higher level;
ii.       use discreetly the essential drugs, infusions, blood or its substitutes and laboratory services.
iii.      Manage all type of emergencies-medical, surgical obstetric, neonatal and paediatric, by rendering first level care;
iv.     Demonstrate skills in monitoring of the National Health Programme and schemes, oriented to provide preventive and promotive health care services to the community;

vi.     Render services to chronically sick and disabled (both physical and mental) and to communicate effectively with patient and the community.

(3)                 Time allocation to each discipline is approximate and shall be guided more specifically by the actual experience obtained.
