The field Practice areas for Rural and urban posting have been selected and students are taken regularly to these areas. These field practice areas are in the process of delivering community services and for establishing the Demographic Surveillance Site (DSS). Our vision is to cultivate these centres as the 'model – centre' for delivering primary and secondary level health care to community and to endow with the state of art teaching training activities for students.
