As a part of BHMS curriculum, the Department of Community Medicine organises Health Survey for the final BHMS students to acquaint themselves about health issues of the society, to identify the factors influencing the diseases, adopt preventive strategies and to implement curative measures. As a process, specific area from Grama Panchayat / Village is first identified with the help of officials/personals of the Panchayat concerned. Each and every house of the locality is visited by the students under the guidance of faculty and necessary data in detail are collected in a prescribed format. Thus the collected data are analysed and patients identified if any are referred to collegiate hospital for treatment. As a follow up procedure, the institution conducts medical camps and awareness programmes on health issues care. The collected data are thereafter handed over to the officials of Health Department. Similar Health Surveys are also conducted by the Internees as a part of extension activity of the institution. The Head of the Department of Community Medicine is the Co-ordinator of Health Survey.
