COMMUNITY MEDICINE

Overview

Community Medicine deals with health care issues affecting communities as a whole, with an emphasis on preventive measures at various levels. It seeks to alleviate health problems by finding comprehensive solutions that address not just medical, but social issues.

 

The department strives to sensitize students to the various factors influencing health, healthcare and healthcare seeking behavior. Students are provided hands-on experience in survey techniques and research. They are also involved in health care at the community level, implementation of national health programmes and health education activities.
