Resources at the hospital include the various departments like General medicine and general surgery, ENT, Psychiatry, Paedritics, OBG, Orthopedics, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Urology and respiratory diseases.
Attendance is a primary feature of medical campuses because a responsible student gives rise to a common and continuous platform for the betterment of patients. From proxy attendance to attendance shortfalls to performance in exams, all are interrelated. Student attendance in a medical campus is associated in theory, practical and clinical classes. This is the same case as with the staff members. The stakeholders should have access to real-time reports on student and faculty attendance.
