Award for 'Stories of Change - Case Study Challenge'
Despite the role of social determinants in health care being well established, neither medical education nor public health services in India have taken cognizance of it. This non-recognition has led to several biases in the dispensing of treatment and care to patients, especially those who are marginalized. Scholars have critiqued the field of medicine as being gender-blind and male-biased because the body of medical knowledge views the male body as the norm, with men’s experiences forming the basis for describing signs and symptoms of illness.
CEHAT in collaboration with Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) and Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) undertook a research project on integrating gender in medical education in MBBS curriculum in Maharashtra. The project was conceptualized so as to integrate gender in medical teaching by building capacities of medical educators.
The award ceremony will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2019 (09.30 am onwards) at Azim Premji University, Electronic City Campus.
