Background

Established in 1990 as Education Technology Group, it was constituted by 32 teachers trained in education technology by NTTC, PGI, Chandigarh. The group has undertaken various activities like conducting workshops for teachers in Education Technology, defining institutional and departmental objectives as well as other activities like Orientation programs for new entrant medical students. Complying to MCI norms, in 2000, it was renamed as Medical Education Unit (MEU). In June 2009, considering the valuable and significant contribution of the MEU in Medical Education, Medical Council of India designated it as one of the initial Regional Training Centres for Medical Educational Technologies as a part of its newly launched Faculty Development Programme with 30 medical colleges across India under the centre. In 2014, MCI has upgraded our centre as Nodal Centre for Advance Course in Medical Education.
