POSTGRADUATE DEGREE COURSE

Postgraduate Department:

PG Curriculum was developed with an aim to develop specialists who stand out for their competence and skills.

Competency based curriculum is framed with well defined competencies for each year of study, a defined minimal quota of academic events and procedures to be performed. The curriculum allows students an option to choose electives such as Naturopathy, Yoga, Acupuncture & Energy Medicine (5 in each elective) where in they are given additional training to improve their skills.

A structured portfolio is developed, which includes reflective comments.

A well defined system of formative assessments is developed, which includes workplace based assessments and assessment of professionalism.

Hallmark of the PG training is the robust monitoring system of curriculum implementation. For each PG, an academic in-charge is allotted who is overall responsible for the PG training throughout. A system of quarterly review and reporting from academic in-chargers helps in close monitoring by the Principal. Academic in-chargers conduct regular appraisal meetings with the PGs to understand and address the main issues. Annual review of competency progression is done at the end of 1 year. A regular feedback from PGs is obtained to understand and address their learning environment and facilitate their learning process. Every week each PG student should perform Journal presentations, Case presentations, Seminars under the guidance of academic in-chargers.

Final year PGs should submit their dissertation 6 months prior to their University examinations. A heavy focus on research methods and mandatory research projects helps create a penchant for problem solving, and sets the process for lifelong learning.
