Educational visit

Educational visits have been an important part of the teaching and learning process. These visits provide an opportunity to have first hand information about the agency or the institution in their natural environment. Educational visits will help the students to get knowledge of community and other health care agencies, their functions, and to familiarize with various types and number of health resources available in a selected community where educational visits can be organized. This will also help the students to critically evaluate the resources in order to make appropriate referrals or use these for planning and implementing various health programmes.
