Research Activities in CHPE

Right from inception, CHPE has been emphasizing the role of educational research as a main step towards scholarship development.Educational research is a part and parcel of all programmes starting with PG Diploma to
M Phil and Ph D programmes.

Research Initiation

Every PGDHPE scholar has to work on an educational project and submit a short research project in the form of a project report. The scholars are encouraged to make a presentation of such work during State/National Conferences in the form of poster or verbal presentation. Two credits are assigned for this project. So far 15 scholars have completed such projects.

Some of these projects have led to the changes in the teaching or assessment practices in the concerned department.  For example, a project on Multi-source Feedback has prompted introduction of this tool in formative assessment.


RESEARCH training at M.phil level

The M Phil and Ph D scholars are exposed to a Research Methodology Work shop series conducted as a central facility. This programme has been assigned 8 credits.

The M Phil scholars work on two electives (contributing to 8 credits each) leading to the submission of  Monographs which become a part of the assessment.  They are also expected to submit a dissertation leading to a publication carrying 8 credits.


The Centre is one amongst the few Health Sciences Universities in the country which trains scholars for the degree of Ph.D. under the Deanery of Allied Health Sciences. Currently, there are six candidates who are engaged in the Ph.D. programme. Some of them have published papers in indexed journals.
