St John’s always recognized the need for the emphasis on ethics in the training of a medical student. Even before ethics classes were mandated by the MCI in 2019- the Department of Medical Ethics conducted more 40 hours Ethics and Values sessions classes for MBBS students, in the 1st, 4th and 8th term. The topics were consistently reviewed to ensure it is relevant to the practice of medicine. An introduction to ethics was done during the Foundation course with the St. John’s Version of the Hippocratic Oath being read as a prayer by the students during the Orientation Programme. From 2019, in keeping with the MCI mandate 40 hours of Ethics in the Foundation Course, with the AETCOM (Attitude, Ethics and Communication) sessions of 34 hours in first year and 37 hours in second year have been taken. We also added relevant topics like creativity in doctors, dealing with stress and addictions amongst others. As the 2019 batch goes into their 3rd and 4th years- additional sessions will be taken as required. .
