"With passing time, we are observing critical challenges in healthcare, a dearth in skilled junior doctors and lack of access to simulation tools for training. With Medvarsity's simulation training program for resident doctors, we are looking at bridging the gap in skills and also use the training program as a capacity builder. This will be a great program for young doctors to acquire good clinical skills that will help them in managing their patients better," said Dr. K Hari Prasad, President Apollo Hospitals Division.
India, along with the rest of the world, is seeing a scarcity of skilled doctors; according to a study by PwC, there are 1.7 doctors to 1,000 population. The state of Indian healthcare is worrisome on the whole and more so because of number of less skilled professionals. Owing to the situation, there is a great demand for upskilled healthcare practitioners who can understand the dynamics of growing challenges that the industry is facing, on the whole. With the outlook to provide better patient care and career opportunities for the doctors, a strategic approach is necessary. Medvarsity, with its varied range of clinical and non-clinical courses, have been specially designed by doctors, for the doctors.
"We are proud to support Apollo Hospitals in the key area of upskilling their residents on critical clinical skills. Apollo's need to have the best talent is critical to their success and our simulation training tools are best suited to bridge the skill gap," said Mr. Gerald Jaideep, CEO, Medvarsity Online Ltd.
Even with information overload of today's times, a busy doctor still struggles to be well-versed with the latest developments in the industry and that is where Medvarsity aims to bridge the gap.
