IMA Doctors to learn programming, designing websites and more from DAVV

INDORE: Doctors affiliated to Indian Medical Association (IMA) will now learn computers, financial management training, programming and designing website from Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV).
IMA is collaborating with DAVV and Deen Dayal Upadhyay Kaushal Kendra (DDU-KK) wherein doctors will get trained to make efficient use of computers for their thesis and even create their own website.

“We are extremely happy to collaborate with IMA. This collaboration will reap benefits in ways more than one. Computers, finance, and other trainings will be provided to them, which will be beneficial for doctors. It will be a barter system,” vice chancellor of DAVV Dr NK Dhakad told TOI.

On the other hand, doctors of IMA will conduct seminars, workshops, and medical training programmes for varsity free of cost.

Medical students and staff will be benefited the most, said zonal chairman of Indian Medical Association (IMA), Indore chapter, Dr Sanjay Londhe, who was a part of the meeting conducted with Dhakad and director of DDU-KK, Dr Maya Ingle.

“The students of Hindi medium or villages, who get selected in NEET and other medical examinations have poor language skills and face several issues. Doctors are not good with computers and managing finance. As everything is getting digitalized this will be beneficial for them,” he said.

The doctors will also be a part of medical camps that the varsity conducts at villages adopted by them and even at university teaching department (UTD), Londhe added.

While the varsity has not yet signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) yet, it is likely to be signed in a months’ time.

“While we have already conducted the meeting and discussed the plans, we will also get it official on papers with a MoU. We will charge nominal price from students,” said Ingle.
