Pediatric Cardiology Training Opportunities in India

  1. 1. Academic cardiology: Where are the (new) opportunities in India? Dr. Sunita Maheshwari Senior Consultant Pediatric Cardiologist and e-Teacher, Bangalore
  2. 2. Of course…The new social world • Blogs • YouTube videos • Facebook / LinkedIn Groups • Books on Flipkart / Amazon
  3. 3. Problem: Cardiology Training in India • Number of super specialists teaching are limited in number • Energy and time needed for clinical work makes content creation / class delivery a challenge • Quality is variable and different • Different institutions have different protocols / approaches to patient care so no standardisation. • DM / DNB start and end time changes each year
  4. 4. Some solutions • Examination boards: Collaborate to standardise degrees, timing of entry into programs, timing of exit, equivalence in degrees and standardisation of content / teaching methods • The use of ‘e’ in training for super specialists has been attempted via teaching websites and creation and distribution of DVD’s/CD’s: Disadvantage: non interactive, cannot objectively assess student learning
  5. 5. e-Teaching: Teacher anywhere One Teacher All PG’s Same content All centers
  6. 6. Student anywhere: Classroom or smart phone (or recorded e-class, doesn’t miss a session)
  7. 7. e-Teaching program so far… March 2010 - December 2014: 375 e-classes in Pedi cardiology • Teachers: India and international • Students: Mandatory for Fellows of the National Board but open to anyone interested • 280 logins globally • Tues 530 Thurs 8am • Content portal with recorded e-lectures • Bi annual Quiz • Accredited by the National Board of Examinations, New Delhi
  8. 8. Conclusion • Innovative use of technology such as e-teaching can help spread the reach of academic cardiologists • The same e-Teaching program can be extended to all medical specialties • It obviates the problem of scarcity of super specialist teachers and standardizes content for all medical graduates
