The three-year course will be geared specifically towards providing medical care in rural areas and has already been okayed by the Centre with the Medical Council of India drawing up the syllabus for the course.

Elaborating on the course, MCI's senior advocate, Amarendra Sharan said "The new course (Bachelors of rural health care) includes a three-year intensive classroom coaching and six months of internship. After passing the course a student has to work for five years in a rural area and then the student can do a two-year bridge course. A student who passes through will get a degree equivalent to MBBS."
