PREAMBLE :
The unprecedented growth of Medical Institutions in India in past two decades has led to
shortage of teachers and created quality challenges for medical education
In recent years, though medical advances have been understood & adopted by many
institutions, the same in not true for educational planning & implementations. The situation is made grave by the gross disparity in the global standards of Health education and the actual practice in Indian context, leaving believed a penumbra. Hence there is a need for creation of education programs to resolve the penumbra existing between the Global and national standards of Health education. As per the guidelines of Medical Council of India, in the year 1997, Medical Education Unit was established at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC). As such, in 2007, Medical Education Unit was upgraded to the Department of Medical Education Technology (DOME) to take care of the academic ambience and Faculty Development at University level. The Department of Medical Education Technology at DMIMS (DU) was upgraded to a Center for Health Professions Education and Research in 2012 and finally to a full fledged School for Health Professions Education and Research (SHPER) in 2013. It is designated as one of the Centers of Excellence with a Chair attributable to it. SHPER takes care of academic ambience in all the constituent colleges of the University through its unique feature of respective Education Units. DMIMS being a Deemed to be University has the privilege to design and implement its own education program match able with Global standards, and has lead to creation of "School for Health Professions Education and Research" along with its five departments of Curriculum , Department of Teaching & Learning , Department of Assessment & Evaluation, Department of , Educational & Research, Department of Competences and three educational Units Dental Education Unit(DEU) at SPDC, Ayurved Education Unit (AEU) at MCAC, Nursing Education Unit (NEU) at SRMMCON & Physiotherapy Education Unit (PEU) at RNPC the constituent colleges to take care of academic ambience of the university and premier to promote improvement in quality of medical education at par with Global contest , ultimately leading to quality augmentation of Health care for the mankind
