In addition, we have the School of Health Professions Education and Research (SHPER) with academic courses viz; MPhil in Health Professions Education and Doctoral course in Medical Education. We have 5 FAIMER fellows, 41 faculties with M. Phil in Medical Education and 13 faculties undergoing doctoral degree in Medical Education.
The School for Health Professions Education & Research is unique in having five constituent departments namely; Department of 1. Teaching & Learning, 2. Assessment & Evaluation 3.Curriculum, 4.

The other distinctive feature is creation of Education units in Dental, Nursing and Ayurved faculty for uniform and smooth functioning of various activities. Our Communication, Attitude & Phonetic lab is one of its kinds in Central India, along with a fully equipped Basic & Advanced skill lab.

We have received 13 Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in medical education by Government of India and 17 more copyrights are in the process of getting approval. It is a pleasure to share that we have a devoted & enthusiastic faculty pool of 40 members who are dedicated to the cause.
