After thorough preparation a new curriculum for the training of medical practitioners was framed. The new syllabus aims at accomplishing the greatest degree of integration and coordination, to accentuate the principles of medicine and to stimulate further self education. Four basic subjects are completed at the end of the 1st year, two at the end of the 2nd year, and two after the first semester of the 3rd year. No further examinations are conducted over the next 2.5 yr. At the conclusion of the 5th year, an examination stressing theory is taken, and in the 6th year another, stressing practical and clinical efficiency; and after this the M.B. Ch.B. is awarded. At the end of the 7th year an evaluation is made.
