Abstract

This article describes a novel way of introducing the concept of bio-medical waste management to medical students in their first year of medical education. The bio-medical waste management policies and practice in the department can be utilized as an educational opportunity for formal training of students at no additional cost. We are running an educational program (a practical and hands-on approach) on bio-medical waste management and successfully training a batch of 100 students every year.
