Rethinking Medical Education

Amrik Singh Medical Education Re-examined edited by Dhruv Mankad; Medico Friend Circle, 1991; pp 214, Rs 100 (hb), Rs 35 (pb). HIGH literacy and low rate of infant mortality are two of the more important indices of what, over the years, has come to be called the quality of life. In other words, there is a close and integral connection between the two. In our own country the experience of both Kerala and Mizoram, the two states with the highest rate of literacy, goes to confirm this perception. In both states literacy is high. At the same time health services too are fairly well-organised and in consequence the rate of infant mortality is low. It seems safe to say that both these social services (education and health) promote social welfare and curb ignorance as well as disease and ill-health.
