Orientation Programme On Indian Council of Medical Research – Short Term Studentship – (ICMR-STS) Projects

In recognition of the need for enhancing the research orientation in undergraduate students, the Scientific Committee organized a training workshop on “Orientation Programme on Indian Council of Medical Research – Short Term Studentship – (ICMR-STS) Projects” on 24th November 2018. First and 3rd term MBBS students attended the workshop.

Undergraduate students generally do not have a sound understanding of medical research. To orient them towards research methodology, Indian Council of Medical Research has been conducting Short Term Studentship Projects since many years. This workshop was organized to motivate the students to take up project works as per ICMR guidelines.

Dr. Raghavendra S K, Assistant professor in department of community medicine delivered the welcome speech and opened the meeting by introducing the workshop background and objectives.

Dr. Aliya Nusrath , professor and HOD of department of biochemistry delivered talk introducing ICMR STS projects and gave a detailed walkthrough towards starting the project work.

The workshop was attended by 1st year and 3rd term students who were very enthusiastic about learning about ICMR STS projects.

Dr. Vinay S Bhat thanked Dr. Aliya Nusrath for delivering an excellent talk regarding ICMR STS projects.

 Dr. Raghavendra S K delivered vote of thanks and motivated students to take up ICMR STS projects

Workshop concluded with a note to the students regarding conducting further workshop specifically targeting students who have registered for ICMR STS workshop , which will be held once the registration process for projects gets completed.
