The realization of sustained, equitable and universal health coverage is the onus of every medical teaching institution. This is achieved by the outreach of affordable quality health care to a wide and varied population base and a dedicated medical fraternity who constantly endeavor to improve the means of health care delivery. To this end, the role of CMCHRC, with its vista of health and educational services is a haven to all who seek its services, be it a professional, a student or a patient.
Our teaching standards reflect the latest trends in the national and the international scenario. What remains our greatest challenge and focus of medical training is the inculcation of the principles and practice of professionalism in our students and faculty. Cutting edge knowledge aside, what contributes to the revered and much talked about physician- patient trust is the professional attitude of the medical practitioner. Medical professionalism incorporates as its attributes those of altruism, competence, accountability, integrity, social responsibility and many others.
