Revised Version 2011





Kathmandu University was established in November 1991 by an act of Parliament. Kathmandu University
started functioning from December 11, 1991. The University operates through the School of Sciences,
Engineering, Management, Arts, Education and Medical Sciences.

The University first granted affiliation to a private medical college, Manipal Colleges of Medical Sciences,
at Pokhara to start MBBS program since December 1994. Since then six other medical colleges have been
granted affiliation college of Medical Sciences, Bharatpur, Chitwan, in August 1996; Nepalgunj Medical
College, Chisapani, Banke, in December 1997; Kathmandu Medical College, Kathmandu, in December
1997; Nepal Medical College, Kathmandu, in December 1997; Nobel Medical College, Biratnagar, in
February 2007 and Lumbini Medical College, Palpa, in February 2009.

Kathmandu University School of Medical Sciences started its own Medical College in collaboration
between Kathmandu University and Dhulikhel Hospital. KUSMS launched its own constituent MBBS
program in August 2001.

The first MBBS curriculum in now called Pre-Clinical Science was developed in association with the
Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, India. In Keeping with developments in modern medical
education, the first review of the Pre-Clinical Science curriculum was carried out in 1996 along with the
participation of the Institute of Medicine, Tribhuvan University and Manipal Academy of Education,
Manipal, India. The outcome was the second version of Pre-Clinical Science curricumum in December

The University is in touch with the changing scenario in Medical education. The emphasis is now on
problem-based learning. With this concept in mind, another review of the Pre-Clinical Sciences curriculum
was carried out in March 2001. The new version emphasizes teaching Pre-Clinical Science subjects
system-wise and in an integrated way. Appropriate common clinical problems related to each organ system
was revised in consonance with the existing health situation; and practical activities were identified in each
subject. A chapter on medical ethics was added. Also during that phase the student were introduced to
clinical knowledge and skills utilizing a problem solving approach. Medical informatics was added in
newly to enhance computer literacy relevant to medical education. These changes fostered in students the
ability to learn through self-directed and independent study.The Third Version was introduced in august
2001 academic session; there was rearrangement of the Community Medicine curriculum.

The present edition of the Fourth version which begins from August 2011 academic session contains
rearrangement of semesters (instead of Unit) and evaluation scheme. Extensile information gathering from
all concerned was done. Workshops were conducted inviting all representatives from all affiliated colleges
of KU; TU-IOM and Nepal Medical Council necessary changes in the curriculum were done. Common
curriculum and evaluation scheme for both constituent and affiliated colleges is adapted. PBL (Problem
Based Learning) teaching methodology and Introduction to Clinical Medicine (ICM) are introduced in
both constituent as well as affiliated colleges. The University is aware of the fact that there is “no best
way” but always “a better way” and is always commited to improve the curriculum, as necessity demands.

• to select a drug on the basis of comparative efficacy. whether or not a prescriber has prescribed the drugs keeping in mind the concept of rational use of drugs and essential drug. by the number of encounters surveyed. Essential Drugs are the drugs that satisfy the health care needs of majority of the population. These behaviors include the processes of making a dispensing. (i) Average number of drugs per encounter: Calculated by dividing the total number of different drug products prescribed. Here lies the concept of rational use of drugs. they should therefore be available at all times in adequate amounts and in appropriate dosage form. • to write a correct prescription. For achieving this objective. students will be given scenario that should focus on therapy but not the diagnosis. by the total number of encounters surveyed × 100. drugs are prescribed to treat the illness of patients.RATIONAL PRESCRIBING Process of Rational Prescribing: The practical sessions in Pharmacology to provide systematic approach to prescribing are designed with an objective that students will be able to write an appropriate and correct prescription for a patient. The different aspects of drug use can be assessed by some of the indicators. (iv) Percentage of encounters with an injection prescribed. • to make appropriate arrangements for follow-up. and use of drugs by patient. The guide to Good Prescribing (WHO) should serve as source of clinical scenarios and discussions. in doses that meet their own requirements for an adequate period of time. safety. put forth by WHO namely. Drug Use Indicators Study (Prescription Audit) In all the health care delivery systems. • to counsel the patient. cost and suitability. the interaction between the prescriber (provider) and the patient. (v) Percentage of drugs prescribed from essential drug list or formulary. • to choose between drug and / or non-drug. “Drug Use” involves not only the actual prescribing of drugs but also wide range of behaviors that occur during the drug use encounter. At the end of the session. (ii) Percentage of drugs prescribed by generic name: Calculated by dividing the number of drugs prescribed by generic name by the total number of drugs prescribed. (iii)Percentage of encounters with an antibiotic prescribed: Calculated by dividing the number of patient encounters during which an antibiotic is prescribed. It entails: (i) Average number of drugs per encounter. called drug use indicators. patient care indicators and facility indicators. and the lowest cost to them and their community. the student should be able : • to specify the therapeutic objective. (iii)Percentage of encounters with an antibiotic prescribed. Prescribing indicators assess the drug prescribing behavior of a prescriber. multiplied by hundred.
