Patient care is the main learning method for students in M.Ch. (Urology) course for study of diseases.Although patient care comprises preoperative,operative and postoperative phases,it is common knowledge that operative phase receives greatest attention from students for obvious reasons.As most urological diseases are chronic and long-term patient care continues during follow-up and subsequent hospitalisations,long-term observation and study of patients by students is needed for proper understanding of diseases.These learning needs and relevant educational objectives are discussed in the background of current teaching-learning strategies of patient care for M.Ch.students (bed allotment approach and co-operative care approach)which fail to provide long-term perspective of diseases and unintentionally encourage students to think in terms of operations and not in terms of patients.To meet need-based objectives of learning from patient care,an innovative long-term patient assignment approach is presented and its methodology,evaluation process and benefits are described.
