Simultaneous use of advanced methods like power-point presentations, video lectures, video conferences etc have added the prosperity to audio visual learning methods.

The Goal of the E-resource Centre is to compile the all knowledge documents and made available at the place, which is accessible to everyone at anytime from anywhere and thus contributing to create a knowledge environment.

The Objective of this section is to make available such resource materials to the faculty members, Post-Graduate students of Community Medicine, Colleagues working in the field of Public Health and general public as well.

Content provided in this section of IAPSM will be useful to not only the undergraduates and post graduate students but also to the faculties of community medicine. It can be accessed through search button in Presentation sections. Guidelines, PSM in Picture and Reports can be directly downloaded.

Any of the faculty members can send such study material to the following mail id: for wider circulation and better utilization to the peers. Suggestions are also requested for displayed material.

The resource materials are used from the colleagues who have willingly shared, available on internet or circulated in workshops etc. The objective of sharing resource is purely academic and non commercial.
