Abstract

Nursing perspective is different from doctors. It is a known fact that doctors
and nurses must work together for the better patient care. It is very
important for doctors to know how nursing services are provided. Moreover
a good communication and team work is an essence of present medical
service. So, this attitude should be embedded in the medical education to
decrease professional distance and increase mutual respect in future. PAHS
has provided this opportunity as a nursing posting with a vision of holistic
teaching of medical students and shaping a positive attitude towards all
health care providers.
Keywords: medical education, medical student, nursing
