Author(s): Dr. Jesheela
Abstract: Our current undergraduate Homoeopathic course have to prepare the students adequately for their role in society, profession and health system. We have to make community Medicine interesting and acceptable, and it is the time to reform and innovate. Medical profession being service oriented, “learning by serving” should be at the centre of teaching strategies. In this era of evidence based medicine, innovative teaching learning methods coupled with appropriate mentoring are required to make the undergraduate Homoeopathic medical students interested in the speciality of Community Medicine. Teaching research methodology by involving them in small, feasible, sustainable, and replicable studies on a topic of interest clearly showed renewed interest among students toward the subject. For this we need to start Post Graduate course in Homoeopathy to strengthen teaching of macro-level subjects in Community Medicine.
