General Medical

and Surgical Care

There has been a growing interest from hospitals in developing a training that effectively addresses basic health and hospital behaviors and can be delivered to all admitted inpatients across wards. This program allows us to have a presence across an entire facility.

Our General Medical and Surgical Care curriculum addresses some of the common health problems for which training could feasibly result in positive health impacts for patients. 

The program is presently being implemented in 28 hospitals in India by our local partners, in collaboration with the state governments of Punjab and Karnataka.
