New medical education programme soon


KARACHI: Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) is launching its web-based electronic-Continuing Medical Education Programme as the “e-CME Lecture Series for Family Physicians”. This e-learning programme will be run by Pakistan College of General Practitioners e-Centre and supported by Media Cell of DUHS. The family physicians are the professionals whose recognition of disease symptoms, initial intervention and planning count towards the subsequent outcome of advanced and definitive management of the diseases at referral centres. Therefore, an e-CME programme has been developed with a busy adult learner in mind and made available for learning at home or workplace in free time. Nevertheless, a validity time has been set for assessment of each module. A module being the unit contains a number of video lectures related to a topic. Each module will signify a particular aspect of interest and provide the core and essential knowledge in that particular area of interest required for safe practice of medicine and patient care. A number of 5-10 recorded lectures will thus comprise a module. Each video lecture in a module will be of 35-45 minutes duration and at the end of each lecture, there would be 5-10 post-test questions. About 30 to 40 modules will form this course. CME credit hours shall be awarded when all the post-tests in a module have been attempted successfully as required.
