The program can be used on-line or it can be downloaded for off-line studies. The program consists of a series of lectures, short tests, and applicable links. The course can be continuously adapted and changed to suit different settings. The program was initiated in November 2010 in Chennai for 10 postgraduate doctors and will run over a 6 month period.
