About SHER

The unprecedented growth of Medical Institutions in India in the past two decades has led to a shortage of teachers and has created quality challenges for medical education.

In recent years, though as medical advances have been understood & adopted by many institutions, the same is not true for educational planning & implementations. The situation is made quite grave by the gross disparity in the global standards of Health Education and the actual practice in the Indian context, leaving behind a penumbra. Hence there is a need for the creation of educational programs to resolve this penumbra which exists between the global and national standards of Health education. As per the guidelines of the Medical Council of India, in the year 1997, the Medical Education Unit was established at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC). As such, in 2007, the Medical Education Unit was upgraded to the Department of Medical Education Technology (DOME) to take care of the academic ambiance and Faculty Development at the university level. The Department of Medical Education Technology at DMIHER (DU) was upgraded to a Center for Health Professions Education and Research in 2012 and finally to a full-fledged School of Higher Education and Research (SHER) in 2013. It is designated as one of the Centers of Excellence with a Chair attributable to it. SHER takes care of the academic ambiance in all the constituent colleges of the University through its unique feature of respective Education Units. DMIHER being a Deemed to be University has the privilege to design and implement its own education program which is comparable to the global standards, and has lead to the creation of the "School for Health Professions Education and Research" along with its five departments of Curriculum, Department of Teaching & Learning, Department of Assessment & Evaluation, Department of Educational & Research, Department of Competences and four educational Units - Dental Education Unit (DEU) at SPDC, Ayurved Education Unit (AEU) at MGAC, Nursing Education Unit (NEU) at SRMMCON & Physiotherapy Education Unit (PEU) at RNPC. The constituent colleges are tasked to take care of the academic ambiance of the university and to premier to promote improvement in the quality of medical education to match & exceed the global landscape, ultimately leading to quality augmentation of healthcare for mankind.
