The Department of medical education (DME) is the integral, prerequisite component for the recognition of every medical college of Pakistan by KMU, PM&DC & WFME. DME in GMC was functional since 2015 under the supervision of Prof. Dr.Iftikhar Ahmad Khanas full time Director of DME with the help of senior faculty. One of the important challenges for the new faculty was to develop and implement the modular system of medical education and training rather than discipline based.DME has endeavored to cater for the educational needs of the faculty of GMC by developing a critical mass of faculty members trained in changed curriculum and teaching/ and assessment practices along with a quality MCQs & SAQs bank as underlined by KMU, PM&DC& WFME.
The curriculum of 1st and 2nd year has been converted into new modular system. We look forward to converting 3rd year to final year course into modules. Small group discussions (SGDs), Directed self-learning sessions, and self-directed learning along with other tutorials have been introduced. PRIME module (Professionalism and Patient safety, Research, Identity formation, Management and leadership and Ethics) and Research will cover all 5 years longitudinally. The timetables, study guide and learning objectives of modules are available on college website.
Curriculum Committee consisting of trained faculty members meets regularly to indigenously develop an integrated modular curriculum. The list of members, attendances and notifications of the meetings are available for record. A formal mentorship program with the students involving faculty members has been started on monthly basis. Student assessment (written and practical) using scenario based, MCQs at the end of each module is done. Regular faculty and learning environment evaluation has been started using surveys and focus group interviews of students.
