A DIAMOND approach for keeping medical curriculum live and healthy

  • During the last two to three decades many efforts have been made to improve curriculum and made changes in order to get maximum outcome at undergraduate levels. However the question whether curriculum changes result in better medical doctors is a complex one and so far failed to answer correctly. The continuing medical education (CME) after graduation is also considered as an activity for enhancement of knowledge and skills. We believe that medical educationist neglected a hypothesis presented about the diseases of curriculum whether at any level of medical education and would not be able to make good changes until unless prevent these diseases. This paper is an effort to develop a model by synthesis of a curriculum of CME activity for general practitioners (GPs) with the name of Family Medicine Essentials (FAME) that will prevent the diseases of curriculum and later may predict an understanding of the factors contributing for development of a long live healthy curriculum.
