Evaluation of the examination conducted will be done by a committee of faculties

Merit list & Successful candidates name will appear on the WEB site of MUHS

Candidate will be evaluated by credit points system :

Most Fellows confuse credit based system with a different evaluation system in medical education. The credit based system is rather a scientifically accepted system which allows different weightage to different courses in a program based on its utility in the overall program structure. Over a period of time it has been identified that every program must have some learning objective defined to it. It is also accepted fact that only a flexible credit based structure can provide the best training and learning where the student can learn at his own pace and can learn what he perceives that would help him in his professional career.

The Advantages of credit based evaluation system are (1) Skilled fellows can always go for the maximum credits (2) Students can learn at their own pace. Practising Surgeons busy in practise will find it to be more suitable. Students can come back and finish the operative modules any time within a stipulated time and in any order. Only the Soft skill development in skills laboratory setup has to be finished first (3) Students get the freedom to choose and identify (4) Fellows can translate their innate capabilities to credits and get the know-how of more than one discipline increasing their horizons.

Since the entire course is Credit System based, for each Module, the candidates will be assigned credits for their work by respective Faculty/Institute. The candidates may finish their modules and earn credits in Operative sessions within a certain stipulated time (maximum 3 years and minimum 1 year) in any order depending upon their availability of time and convenience. The basic credits for any system as stipulated by faculty of a particular course, however, will have to be finished first. The fellows may be rotated with different expert faculties / Institutes of a specific module so as to learn maximum from the respective experts in their actual operative module .

Rotation

A Fellow during his tenure of One year will be rotated through various institutes /faculties for total exposure to various aspects and skill in Specific/specialized Surgery. Rotations to other faculties within the course are important part of the skills curriculum. Rotations are agreed upon by the faculty and optional rotations are available upon request of the fellow and approval by the faculty program director. Upcoming interesting cases by faculty should be broadcast to all fellows through the monthly didactic meetings so freely available fellows can travel to the sites to participate or see these unusual cases.
Evaluations of the fellows by the faculty and of the faculty by the fellows will be performed at all teaching sites every quarter during the year and upon the completion of each rotation.

This requires rotation in :
  • Soft Skill Development and working at skill station and Virtual reality module for proper hand to eye co-ordination ,basic skills, basic laboratory work and proper perspective
  • Didactic Lectures /Grand Rounds/ Clinical meetings
  • Operative sessions in various modules/subjects/expertise in particular surgical procedure in the specified/specialized course
  • Other

Operative experience will take place along with the Faculties who will be assigned by MUHS with those hospitals/ institutes who will have MOU with MUHS for training candidates.

Clinical Responsibilities :

The fellow will attend and work under the faculty in the recognised institutes on the assigned modules. He/ She will participate in the preoperative assessment and planning as well as the postoperative follow-up of their assigned patients under the faculty guidance.

Research Training :

All Fellows are expected to be intimately involved with the program’s research activities, to publish at least 5 case reports per year and present their work at local, regional and National meetings and conferences. Most of the research will focus on the current techniques and outcomes evaluations of Procedures. These will involve both clinical and laboratory based work.

The Programme recognizes the necessity that its Fellows have a basic knowledge in specified Surgery. Didactics, round table meets and seminars will routinely update the academic content of the programme. This will be supplemented with Clinical Learning, through outpatient clinics, ward rounds and presentations and operative experience in the form of assisting and being proctored over surgical procedures

Expectations include: All Fellows :

  • Demonstrate manual dexterity appropriate for their training level
  • Critically evaluate and demonstrate knowledge of pertinent scientific information. Practice-based learning and improvement that involve investigation and evaluation of their own patient care, appraisal and assimilation of scientific evidence, and improvements in patient care
  • All Fellows will present and review current literature at Journal Clubs.
  • All Fellows will be expected to actively participate at local, regional and National seminars and conferences.
  • Maintain high standards of ethical behaviour.
  • Demonstrate sensitivity to age, race, gender, and culture of patients and other health care professionals
  • Practice high-quality, cost-effective patient care. Demonstrate knowledge of risk-benefit analysis.

Portfolio Management :

These academic activities will be constantly be reviewed by a Senior Faculty.

All Fellows will maintain a Fellowship PORTFOLIO.
Two monthly review of following topics by faculty via internet /in person this will include:

  • Research/Project
  • Log Book
  • Presentations
  • On-going Publications
  • Number of hours spent on hands on practice Summaries of case discussions and presentations.
  • Synopsis of publications.

Maintaining accurate case logs is critical to each fellow. These numbers are vital for hospital privileging. It is mandatory that case logs are entered by each fellow into the Specified Surgery/Course Fellowship Case Log. Case logs need to be printed and brought to the monthly didactic meetings for review. Failure to do so results in the curtailing of operative privileges. Log book , presentation & Dissertation will be signed & evaluated on a time to time basis by respective faculties.

On successful completion of all modules of the Programme the Fellow will be awarded a Certificate of the Fellow in Breast Surgery by the MUHS.
