Post-graduate (PG) education in healthcare is essential for creating specialists who can provide high-quality medical care and contribute to the advancement of medical science through research and training. The ultimate goal of PG education is to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to meet the health needs of the community they serve.

A well-trained PG specialist should be able to identify the healthcare needs of the community, manage complex medical/surgical problems, and stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in their field of specialty. It is also essential that the PG student possess empathy and a humane approach when providing professional services.

Moreover, PG education should also include the development of skills in teaching medical/para-medical students and research methodology. Continuous professional development through self-directed learning is also a vital component of PG education.
