Expert committee will study the model implemented in Madhya Pradesh and prepare draft syllabus, health minister says

Inspired by Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand to start medical education in Hindi, Health Minister Dhan Singh Rawat said. The state aims to launch Hindi curriculum, parallel to English, in all subjects from the next academic session.

“The real purpose of new [National] Education Policy (NEP) 2020 is to promote Hindi and regional languages. Uttarakhand is a state where 70% of the students have their secondary education (12th) in Hindi. Having vocational books like MBBS and engineering in Hindi will help these students,” said Mr. Rawat The Hindu.

Uttarakhand currently has four government medical universities in Dehradun, Srinagar (Pauri), Haldwani and Almora. The State has a total of 525 MBBS seats, of which 85% is reserved for the students of Uttarakhand and 15% for students from outside the State.

In three private medical colleges in the state, with 150 seats each, 50% seats are reserved for state students and 50% for all of India.

To prepare the syllabus of MBBS in Hindi, the medical education department has assembled a four-member expert committee, which will form the draft after studying the syllabus implemented in the medical colleges of Madhya Pradesh.

dr. CMS Rawat, Director of Government Medical College, Srinagar (Pauri) is the chairman of the committee which consists of Dr. AK Singh, Professor of Haldwani Medical College, and Dr. Hari Shankar Pandey as members. dr. Daulat Singh of the Government’s Doon Medical College is the secretary of the committee.

dr. CMS Rawat told how the work of preparing the syllabus in Hindi will begin and said the committee will study the syllabus prepared by the MP, who is currently teaching three subjects of medical education in Hindi.

“We’ll see how they did the translation and then we’ll translate the medical school syllabus as well. The aim is to give students the opportunity to study both in Hindi and English, in all subjects, from the next academic session,” he added.
