Dr. M. Ramanathan, Principal, PSG college of pharmacy in an interview with Careers360 speaks on developments taking in medical technology and the research areas in medicine field. Read this interview to know his expert insights on change required in curriculum and increasing number of seats in medicine courses.


Careers360: What developments are taking place in medical technology?
Dr. M. Ramanathan: Fast development is happening in medical technology including pharma where drug approach is going into more proteinase drugs. Now we have more specific drugs and more sophisticated techniques to treat the patient. So, our curriculum has to meet these needs. This is beneficial for students going abroad for jobs and other specialisations.


Careers360: Does the medicine education curriculum need a change?
Dr. M. Ramanathan: Biologicals which are the major player in future contribute poorly in all the domains, be it, clinical, healthcare and pharma sector. These aspects in the curriculum, incorporating better teaching will help in better medical education. We have a number of clinical materials to teach our students. If we link this with recent observations made by them with the help of physicians and focus equally on practical as well as basic sciences, it might help them when they go to clinical domains.


Careers360: Share your thoughts on research in medical fields?
Dr. M. Ramanathan: If you talk about research in medical education, all the information is derived from the patient side. So whatever new observation on drug-responding or not or any other observation is there, can be converted into a research. In this way, we can look into the clinical side and research side.


Careers360: Do you think there’s a need to increase medical seats?
Dr. M. Ramanathan: There is definitely a need to increase the number of seats across medical colleges in the country because as per acceptance ratio we are very much lagging behind so definitely we need more qualified doctors with proper knowledge.
