About Us

The Medical Education Conference (MEDUCON 2023) is aimed at bringing all medical educators and other stakeholders together and provide a platform for sharing knowledge and experiences in the emerging areas of Medical education. The objective of this conference is to look at various challenges faced in the field of health professions’ education and make suggestions to policy makers for quality medical education across the nation. It will provide the opportunity to network with likeminded colleagues at national and international level.


The first National Teacher Training Centre (NTTC) was established in JIPMER by the Government of India with the assistance of WHO in 1975 to promote the training of health professionals in educational science and technology. The first National Course on Educational Science for Teachers of Health Professionals was held in March 1976. The NTTC is celebrating its 45th anniversary, and the 89th National Course will take place prior to MEDUCON 2023. Since 1994, the NTTC continues to function under the aegis of the Department of Medical Education (DME), JIPMER.


The Alumni Association of NTTC JIPMER (AANJ) is a professional body of members trained in various NTTC courses. AANJ members actively participate in the Medical Education Conference (MEDUCON), seminars, webinars, and workshops organised by DME, where they share their educational thoughts and research findings. The AANJ provides a platform for members to share their knowledge and skills and showcase their achievements in medical education, and it strongly supports educational networking.
