IMA to Give Soft Skill Training to 2.5 Lakh Doctors
Dr. A. Marthanda Pillai, the new national president of the Indian Medical Association (IMA), has announced that the focus of his team would be to impart training to develop soft skills of doctors and fight corruption by evolving IMA's own code of conduct.

"IMA will ensure that healthcare services are made a fundamental right. Giving a glimpse of the national health scenario. India lagged far behind in providing public access to even basic services like safe drinking water, sanitation and nutrition and clean water, forget about secondary and tertiary healthcare," Pillai said.

2.5 lakh doctors would be trained in soft skills in two years by IMA, he said at a grand event, IMA NATCON 2014, at Gujarat University Convention Centre, which coincided with 89th national conference of the IMA. Earlier, the central council of IMA approved the list of office-bearers for 2015-16.

Future plans for the IMA include issues related to health financing, private-public financing, increase medial seats, revision of medical education curriculum, convincing doctors to go to rural areas for medical practice and protection of doctors from false charges.
