A brand-new Bachelor of Science (Community Health) course with the goal of creating a pool of health care providers in rural India is likely to be introduced from the academic year 2013-14.

 

 

Those who have completed 10+2 exams with Physics, Chemistry and Biology will be eligible for admission to the 3-year course followed by six months of rotational internship.

 

 

 

 

The task force has made certain recommendations on cost estimates for infrastructure, human resources, equipments and other facilities required in rural health schools. The admissions as well as deployment of these graduates would be district-based in the respective states willing to introduce the course.

 

 

The Bachelor of Rural Health Care (BRHC) as proposed earlier has been changed in consultation with the Medical Council of India.  At present, India is short of 8.5 lakh doctors and the doctor-patient ratio stands at a poor 1:1000.
