Attitude, Ethics & Communication (AET-COM)Competencies for the Indian Medical Graduate.

The Medical Council of India has decided to implement Attitude, Ethics and Communication module (AETCOM) in all medical schools across the country over the next two years. It is proposed that the existing network of MCI Nodal/Regional Centres and ME Units of all medical colleges will be the torch bearers of this transformational change in medical education.



The overall goal of undergraduate medical education programme as envisaged in the revised Regulations on Graduate Medical Education – 2012 (GMR 2012) is to create an “Indian Medical Graduate” (IMG) possessing requisite knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and responsiveness, so that he or she may function appropriately and effectively as a physician of first contact of the community while being globally relevant.

In order to ensure that training is in alignment with the goals and competencies, MCI has proposed new teaching learning approaches including a structured longitudinal programme on attitude, communication and ethics.
