Centre for Social Medicine

Filed under: Uncategorized — Pravara @ 7:29 am

Social Medicine encompasses all dimensions and disciplines that effect the human health, hence it is multi-disciplinary & multi-dimensional.
The recognition that the discipline of Preventive and Social Medicine (PSM), Community Dentistry, Community Nursing, Community Physiotherapy does have limitations to address all the societal needs in a holistic approach and hence needed to be strengthened was the major impetus for establishing a separate Center for Social Medicine (CSM).

Extension activities involving agricultural, technical, educational, vocational, development sectors are difficult to integrate in the present set up.
Development of peripheral health workforce (except medical doctors) and non-formal education is beyond the purview of Department of Community Medicine.
Hence a greater scope for full pursuance of discipline of “Social Medicine” to demystify medicine and focus on positive health has been felt under “Faculty of Allied Health Sciences.”

The CSM was set up by Pravara Medical Trust, Loni and Pravara Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Loni as a separate Unit in the year 2001, outside the confines of a medical, dental, nursing and physiotherapy colleges so that it could enrich itself through wider interaction with the various disciplines of medicine, allied health sciences, natural and social sciences and community groups. The Center was recognized as a Constituent Unit of Pravara Institute of Medical Sciences – Deemed University by Ministry of HRD, & UGC.
