Abstract

PRANAYAMA AND MAHAMANTRA CHANTING: THE TRUE INNOVATION IN MEDICAL EDUCATION

Dr. T.Ganesan, M.D*

ABSTRACT

Medicine is lifelong learning. Medical education has been the subject of ongoing debate since the early 1900s. The Flexner visited 155 medical schools in the United States and Canada between December 1908 and April 1910. In India, there are approximately 400 medical colleges, the highest number of medical colleges in the world. During September 2014 in the United Nations General Assembly, Indian Prime Minister stated that "Yoga embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and wellbeing". Yoga is being integrated with modern medicine at many top medical centres in the world. In India, we need to systematically integrate Yoga, not only with modern medicine but also with Ayurveda for efficient health protection and affordable primary health care.[1] The Indian medical education system, one of the largest in the world, produces many physicians who emigrate to the United States, the United Kingdom, and several other countries. Faculty development, mentoring, integrated teaching, PBL, Seminar, curriculum redesign are already inherent in our medical education. Our hypothesis is to teach the medical students an intervention tool of Pranayama and Chanting Mahamantra as an innovation in Medical Education.

Keywords: Medical Education, stress, Chanting Mahamantra.
