New Delhi – For the first time in India disability rights will be part of the medical colleges curriculum, writes the Times of India. When medical colleges commence their new academic year, they will offer a new one month foundation course in usability rights to be completed by the end of this month.
The Medical Council of India (MCI) has released details of the foundation course involving seven hours of disability competences to be conducted throughout the country.
In November 2018 MCI released the new competency based medical education curriculum but it did not have anything on disability rights. Its focus instead was on medical models of disabilities-illness or disability as a result of a physical condition.
