The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) is a premier national organization responsible for coordinating and promoting research in the field of health and medical sciences in India.
It is likely that ICMR has developed a new online health course to provide education and training to individuals interested in learning about health and medical issues.
The specific details of this course, such as its content, duration, and eligibility criteria, are not known to me as my knowledge is based on publicly available information and my training data. I would recommend contacting ICMR directly for more information about this course. You can find contact information for ICMR on their website or by searching online.
The Indian Council of Medical Research is set to launch a new online course called “one health” on January 23, which will be offered for free by the Regional Medical Research Centre in Bhubaneswar as part of the national program on technology-enhanced learning.
The three-month course, developed by the RMRC and approved by the All India Council for Technical Education, will cover topics such as zoonotic diseases, emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, measures for control, and ways to engage with communities in line with public health policies.
Any graduate and postgraduate in health sciences, biomedical sciences, life sciences, environmental sciences, veterinary sciences, and public health can pursue the course.
Benefits of the Program
The course will cover the history and evolution of the one health concept, its application, relevance, and success. It has been designed for students, early career researchers, clinicians, and policy makers in view of the emerging and re-emerging of infectious diseases of public health importance.
The one health concept supports global health security by enhancing communication, collaboration, and coordination at the human-animal environment interface to address shared health threats such as zoonotic diseases, antimicrobial resistance, and food safety.
The course has been developed to impart knowledge on zoonotic diseases, emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, measures to control and ways to reach out to communities in alignment with public health policies.
How to apply
The three-month course will be offered free of cost and is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). It will be offered by the Regional Medical Research Centre (RMRC), Bhubaneswar under the national program on technology-enhanced learning (NPTEL), which is a joint venture of the IITs and IISc funded by the Ministry of Education.
