Abstract

In this commentary of Sood et al, which stresses on the linking of teaching, learning and as­sessment methods to learning objectives toward achieve excellence in postgraduate medical education, the commentator points out that policy making bodies seem to ignore that. While the authors seem to stress on communicating this aspect, the competent authorities prefer to form non-communicating Committees for delinking teaching / learning from assessment. The authors must be thanked for bringing out these issues for possible debates among all the stakeholders, leading to a renewed effort towards meaningful, timely and useful reforms of the healthcare education system in India.
