Central India’s biggest state-run health institute - MY Hospital - in Indore will soon begin broadcasting surgeries live from operation theatre to its auditorium making it easier for medical students to get a hands on training.
“The project will help in up-gradation of education policies and making the place hi-tech. It will be of immense help especially for students,” said Dr VS Pal, the hospital superintendent.
The PWD will set up equipments for the broadcasting live. It will cost the hospital management Rs.5 lakh.
At present, students take turns in very small batches to assist in a surgery, but with this new technique around 50 students can undergo training at the same time, a doctor said.
Dr Pal said: “A lot of times medical students are not aware of complications which usually arise during a surgery. The purpose of live telecast is basically to make students aware of those complications.”
Using a micro-phone, doctors will be able to narrate surgery procedure to students besides answering their queries, he said.
