Todays Students are intelligent, can adopt to Newer Technologies faster <br></li> <li> 4. Learning to e-learning<br>E-learning is also called Web-based learning, online learning, distributed learning, computer-assisted instruction, or Internet-based learning<br></li> <li> 5. Computers and Medical Education<br>Computers are increasingly used in medical education. Electronic learning (e-learning) is moving from textbooks in electronic format (that are increasingly enhanced by the use of multimedia adjuncts) to a truly interactive medium that can be delivered to meet the educational needs of students and postgraduate learners<br></li> <li> 6.

Advantages of Computers in Education<br>Computer technology can present reliable, reusable content in a format that is convenient to the learner. It can be used to transcend geographical boundaries and time zones<br></li> <li> 8. Computer enters the Class Room<br>With increasing prevalence of computers in and out of the classroom and the development of more sophisticated web-based tools, knowledge transfer is increasing going high-tech<br></li> <li> 9. Foundation of Medical Education<br>Medical education had as its foundation a combination of didactic instruction in the classroom and integrated, hands-on "SocraticMethod" learning in the clinical setting. <br></li> <li> 10. Medical Education Bogged with Problems<br>Medical education, in India apart from several Developing Nations especially in the advances stages of training, has many unique problems such as the temporal and geographic distribution of students, residents, and the physician instructors.

Trainees will make differential diagnoses and develop management plans to tackle these cases<br></li> <li> 18. Newer learning becomes easier with e-learning<br>The outcomes of the cases depend on the actions of trainees. These scenarios will also provide the opportunity for trainees to revise key concepts and gain essential new knowledge through linked interactive sessions.<br></li> <li> 19. Internet can be Teacher ?<br>The most demanding role for Internet lies on the availability of products/ services where the consumer led revolution has already made a considerable progress i.e. in the field of education. There are two scope of education learning teaching and learning in other words training and educating. In a ordered education both has a role in a suitable proportion<br></li> <li> 20.

Medical Colleges in INDIA<br>Majority of the medical colleges were established in the 50s &amp; 60s by the state and the central government. But since 1980s many private colleges emerged all across India. The quality and the standard of the medical institutes are looked after by Medical Council of India. The body has presently recognized several Indian medical schools which has the total capacity to educate &gt; 31298 students.<br></li> <li> 34. </li> <li> 35. Poor infrastructure and quality of Teachers hampering the Medical Colleges<br>In spite of the presence of all the regulatory mechanisms, barring few, most of the medical colleges across the country are grossly lacking competent teachers, well stocked library leave aside adequate teaching material<br></li> <li> 36. Overcoming the Problems??? <br>In order to bridge the knowledge gap few tertiary level academic medical institutions took interest in developing pilot studies by networking peripheral medical colleges with broad band satellite and ISDN link and providing need based educational content in an interactive videoconference mode<br></li> <li> 37. India growing concern with Medical Education<br>. The growing criticism that our medical colleges are producing graduates who are not well equipped to tackle the health car needs of the society<br>While the graduates generally possess reasonably sound knowledge of medical science, they are often found deficient in the performance of clinical skills and problem-solving which form the core of clinical competence<br></li> <li> 38. Our Curriculum stuffed with theoretical Ideas ???<br>The medical colleges in India have traditionally followed a curriculum stuffed with a large body of knowledge pertaining to basic science and clinical disciplines. Once qualified, students are expected to synthesise this information and apply it to the care of the patients. With the expanding body of knowledge, there is over-burdening of the student with the content information.<br></li> <li> 39. Commercialisation of Medical Profession<br>The commercialisation of medical profession is cited as a common reason for the dilution of quality, doubts have been raised regarding the quality of training. <br></li> <li> 40.
