Academics and Research in MVRCCRI

Medical education and research have changed over the years from descriptive studies to justification or program comparison studies and towards a slow introduction of more clarification studies that through quantitative and qualitative methods explains why or how educational interventions work. In addition, it is explained how incorporating research and education into workplace learning and assessment has impacted developments in educational practice. Within the medical domain, the involvement of teachers in conducting and disseminating research should be cherished, because they can play a crucial role in ensuring that medical education and research are applied in educational practices.

Workplace learning is considered by medical experts to be the optimal way of learning a profession. In medical curricula, workplace learning has played a dominant role for a long time. Workplace learning is potentially a very rich learning environment offering students many possibilities to interact with patients and medical experts and to participate in clinical practice. In order to diminish the gap between theory and practice and to create a more gradual transition from school-based learning to workplace learning, workplace learning is nowadays introduced earlier in many medical curricula.

It is a known fact that direct supervision in the workplace is the key to effective student learning. Quality of supervision has been demonstrated to have a direct impact on students’ clinical competencies. Insights about these shortcomings of workplace learning have led to the development of several interventions to optimize student learning, such as in-training assessment to provide learners with more feedback, structuring of workplace learning experiences, deepening the reflective component of learning based on (rich) information from others, etcetera. In addition, there has been increased awareness of the importance of training clinical staff members and providing them with new knowledge and skills for effective teaching and learning in the workplace. We take these issues deeply and construct a curriculum and training based on these factors.


MVRCCRI Academy was constituted in 2019 January, with the aim of imparting Medical Education to Postgraduate Medical students and also to extend hands-on training to other students who require job training, observership, and internship that are associated with the Medical field. 

National Board of Examination (NBE) Accredited Super Specialty courses: (Doctorate of National Board-DrNB)

National Board of Examinations (NBE) was established in 1975 by the Government of India with the prime objective of improving the quality of Medical Education by establishing high and uniform standards of postgraduate examinations in modern medicine on All India basis.

NBE conducts postgraduate and post-doctoral examinations in approved disciplines leading to the award of  Doctorate of National Board (DrNB),  Diplomat of National Board (DNB), and Fellow of National Board (FNB). NBE accredits institutions /hospitals having adequate infrastructure, facilities, faculty, and patient load as per stipulated accreditation norms for the training of candidates in various approved medical specialties.

In 2019 June, MVR  Academy got accredited to the National Board of Examinations (NBE)and has been running DrNB Medical Oncology,  DrNB Surgical Oncology, and FNB Pediatric Hemato Oncology, which are specialty courses accredited by NBE.  Thereafter, every year, enthusiastic and academically superior candidates have been choosing to join our DrNB and FNB courses.  DrNB is a post-MD/MS/DNB super specialty degree awarded by NBE. It is equal to Doctorate of Medicine (DM) and Master of Chirurgiae (MCh) degrees awarded respectively in medical and surgical super specialties.
