Tips on stress management and better interpersonal ties will now form part of the MBBS curriculum in colleges with the Medical Council of India, for the first time, mandating a foundation course to prepare students for the challenges of medical profession.
The approval has taken the number of seats for the MBBS course to 150 for the current academic year, from the previous 100.
The number of seats for the MBBS course at GMC has increased after nearly a decade. The govern-ment-run institute is the lone medical college in the state. Nearly 40 students had to be turned away each year because of the lack of medical seats. Most of them were either forced to opt for dentistry or seek admissions to private colleges outside the state.
Of the 100 seats at the medical college at the moment, 15 are reserved by the all-India quota and only 85 are left for Goan students.
