RHTC and UHTC

UHTC and RHTC are based on three goals:

1. Teaching/training goal:

Teaching goal for medical graduates is to make them a competent ‘Basic Doctors’ who can provide promotive & preventive health services to the patient and community along with the curative services, keeping existent socio-economic & cultural environment in mind.

2. Research goal:

The research goal is to carry out various community and health system based studies and innovations that can contribute to the knowledge and skills for better community health management.

3. Service goal:

Service goal of UHTC/RHTC is to “improve the health status of the population served under the PHC in general, and the poor and other disadvantaged sections particular, by facilitating equitable access to quality healthcare through primary health care, with active involvement of the communities and other stakeholders”. Thus, UHTC and RHTC can be viewed as “an upgraded urban-PHC and rural-PHC” respectively.

These centers are having following additional features over and above conventional Primary Health Centre. They are as below.
