Best practices

1.    Mentor-mentee program was organized, where a teaching faculty monitors & guides his/her group of mentees in their academic areas until their completion of the academic year. In addition regular interactive sessions were made among them to discuss their active status in curricular/ extracurricular activities.

2.    A common platform (Whatsapp group) was created exclusively for official communications between the students and the teaching faculties of the department.

3.    Study materials required for the students were shared through the official platform.

4.    Students were divided into small groups consisting of 6 - 7 persons in each group. Each group will have its own representative and a Table teacher who monitors the group. All such groups were overall monitored by the Head of the Department.

5.    The Table teachers of the groups were scheduled to monitor them in rotation at the end of each regions / lesson plan.

6.    Periodical revision  classes were conducted at the end of each  region and before  the university exam

7.    Individual attention  were given by the faculties during test paper correction and their mistakes are notified and instructed not  to repeat in university exam

8.    Based on the performances of the students in their regular written & practical exams, special care seekers were identified; isolated and additional coaching measures were planned and executed.

9.    Defaulters were intimated to the parents in time after consultation with vice principle

10. Modification were done in the method of teaching as per the expectation of students after obtaining feedback from them

11. The creamy layer of students was also motivated and additional coaching required for them to achieve the University topper/ medals is provided.

12. Regular Quiz programs were conducted at the end of each topic/regions in Anatomy in such a way to help them to attend their MCQ in University Examination and arouse an interest in them to prepare towards their NEET PG examination.

13. Innovative techniques like using Pen tablets in teaching methodology facilitated better sharing of information to the students.

14.  Students were encouraged in making simple, cost-effective embryological models for better approach in understanding the subject.

15.  Simple study models made from renewable sources were used for demonstration of complex structures in the field of Anatomy.

16. Students were encouraged by awarding second MBBS subject textbook  to the First three university rank holders from the department faculties fund

17. Plastination models were utilized in demonstration for the students during the practical hours.

18. OSPE & OSCE methods is planned to be implemented for the upcoming batch of students.
