Innovative teaching
We follow a novel idea known as “Psychological ownership” for both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Every student runs their own practice/clinic in the department. Ownership is an abstract human relational concept.

Ownership in our academic setup is a novel idea, which allows the Undergraduate and Postgraduate students to have their own practice, and choose a name for it. In due course, they build upon the image and brand value of their practice through clinical performance, while maintaining high standards of care to the patients and strictly adhering to the ethical code of conduct. Goal behind this concept is to allow the Undergraduate and Postgraduate students, the responsibility of owing up to the challenges faced in the real world with the functioning of practices, increasing their skill and productivity, while monitoring their performances continuously.

Measuring the progress of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate students is important, in developing and implementing instructional strategies and evaluating the program’s effectiveness. Observation of the gathered data, such as the academic report, the clinical report, provides the faculty with highly accurate, detailed verifiable information on the postgraduate students, for

1. Authentic assessment and comparison of documented performance over time in reliable and valid manner. 
2. Identifying the strengths and weakness of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate students and providing them a suitable environment for their improvement. 
3.  Measuring progress – Monthly progress sheets for Post Graduate students
4. Treatment planning sessions are held for Post Graduates to impart training in clinical decision making
