Adviser to the government of Karnataka (Education Reforms) Prof M R Doreswamy has recommended the state government to issue digital health cards to the government school students in the state.

In a pre-budget meeting with Medical Education Minister Dr K Sudhakar here last week, he requested the government to issue digital health cards to students of government schools and sought adjunct positions in RGUHS to invite global experts and NRIs to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and technologies in key areas of health services and education in the state.

Doreswamy called for the introduction of a mentoring system in medical colleges because of the overwhelming student-teacher ratio there. He said both the Medical Council of India and the National Education Policy mandated incorporation of mentoring practices in all streams of education. The NEP even proposed a National Mission for Mentoring for smooth implementation of the Policy across the country.

He further said that yoga and meditation should be integrated with medical education. This was important because there's no provision for extra-curricular activities and value education in medical colleges, Doreswamy added.
