Competency-based medical education inscribed in the Graduate Medical Education Regulations from Medical Council of India is cogently grounded by the Curriculum Implementation Support Programme throughout the country under the aegis of Medical Education Units and Curriculum Committees of the medical institutes. Global researchers on academic curriculum visualize paradigm of system based teaching–learning in evidence based medicine. This intermingled with participatory contribution from the learners in a non-threatening environment can inculcate philosophy of life-long learning mindset. Creative teaching-learning environments free the mind to freely learn to meet the challenges of the health needs of the country.
