Courses will have live streaming and recorded videos to be followed by tests

To promote collaboration among medical students, doctors and experts, and create a digital community, the country’s first-ever medical education-centric mobile-based platform has been launched.

Dr. Sumer Sethi, the man behind the app and a practising radiologist, said, “We aim to change the way medical education-based content is consumed by medical graduates. Through this app, we are bringing a concept of blended learning. Courses will be a blend of live streaming and recorded videos that will be followed by tests. Blended learning along with support by digital community accelerates learning curve for any student and we want to pioneer this in India.”

Through the app, eMedicoz, doctors and medical students can interact with each other and experts. The platform comprises discussion forums for all different aspects and fields of medicine.

“The aim of making this app is to bridge the gap among medical students preparing for various career opportunities at post-doctoral level and provide them a common platform where they can get all useful information in one place,” read a release issued by the group that developed the app.

“The app provides a platform where students can discuss exam papers, questions of both national and international disciplines and how to deal with it. One can get expert suggestion on how to move forward in critical cases,” said Dr. Sethi.
