A new three-year Bachelor of Science (Community Health) course, aimed at creating mid-level health professionals for rural areas, is likely to start from academic year 2013-14, Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said today.
In a written reply in Lok Sabha, Azad said the course was earlier proposed as Bachelor of Rural Health Care (BRHC) but it has been changed in consultation with the Medical Council of India.
Azad said a task force has been constituted to frame norms for requirements of physical infrastructure, facilities required in rural health schools and examine aspects regarding introduction of the course.
The course duration will be of three years with six months of rotational internship. Candidates eligible for the course will be those who have completed 10+2 exams with Physics, Chemistry and Biology as their subjects. Admission and deployment will be district- based as far as possible, Azad said.
