On an average about 750-800 outpatients are served daily by care provided by the hospital at affordable, subsidized rates. Rotations can be tailored as per the interests of the student scholar. Students also participate in noon conferences.
Interested students have opportunities to participate in fieldwork, such as data collection for the ongoing projects in SHARE INDIA. (Details available on theshareindia.org). Students interested in HIV related work can also participate in activities of APAIDSCON such as organizing Red Ribbon Clubs, creating HIV/AIDS awareness programs; activities of the positive network. They can visit the villages with the team and interact with the local population. This also gives the student scholars an opportunity to learn about the socioeconomic conditions of people in rural India.
Unlike developed countries like the United States, medical care in rural India is very limited. Resident scholars can benefit from the experiences gained by working in a rural environment in a developing country. This will help them gain an insight into medical care in resource-limited settings. Rotations can be structured according to the interest of the resident scholar. Residents can rotate through various clinical departments of their interest. For residents interested in pursuing Primary Care /Family Practice, rotations can be structured to involve multiple departments with special emphasis on outpatient care such as Dept of medicine, women and child health, skin & casualty .The MICU has patient diversity, rotating here would enrich overall clinical experience. Residents who are interested in HIV medicine and I.D fellows can attend the weekly I.D clinics. Case presentations are done at noon conferences. Overall, the experience gained here can be applied in part to rural settings in the US.
