In a first, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will launch Hindi medical education in Madhya Pradesh by releasing translated MBBS freshman books on October 16. The Union Home Minister will unveil the Hindi Medical Education Curriculum Manuals during a program at Motilal. Nehru Stadium, Medical Education Minister Vishvas Sarang said PTI.
This is the first time in India that MBBS will be taught in Hindi, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan said, according to media reports. It will be an example to prove that specialist subjects can be taught in Hindi and not just in English, he said, in line with PTI.
Chouhan further said that apart from medical training, engineering, nursing and paramedical courses will also be conducted in Hindi in the state in the coming days.
The Chief Minister has issued instructions to ensure the participation of maximum number of people in the programme, especially Hindi experts, as it aims to change people’s mindset towards the language.
Speaking about the curriculum, Education Minister Sarang said, “The first volume of books for subjects such as physiology, biochemistry and anatomy is ready and students studying in the first year of MBBS will receive these books.
Also, for these three subjects, textbooks have been prepared by a team of experts and the second volume of these books is being prepared, he added. Also, books are prepared in such a way that technical terms such as blood pressure, spine, heart, kidney and liver or other important body parts and related terms are written in Hindi as they are pronounced in English, said Sarang, who is behind the initiative.
