Introduction: Medical ethics education has to be an integral part of the core curriculum in Ayurveda colleges. The medical ethics program in terms of value education has broaden the curricular effort that aims to enhance physicians’ understanding of their own values, and to improve their decision making processes when they face value-conflict situations which arise during clinical practice. Aim: To assess the perception of First Year BAMS students towards Value in Medical Education. Objective: To study the concept of value in medical education. Methodology: Observational study was conducted in the first year class room of MGACH&RC. Sample size was 60 first year students (batch 2017-18). DMIMS (DU) structured inculcation course of ten hours value education was carried out per day one hour teaching. After completion of ten hours course; immediate feedback was taken. Feedback consisted of seven close ended and three open ended questions. Results: 100 % students were agreed that program added knowledge to the existing one and satisfied with the understanding of values. They realized the importance of values and decided to inculcate in daily life. The program was appreciated by students as it was very interesting and helpful to enhance the positive thoughts, and important for family & professional life. Students were accepted that program is very good for their generation because it teaches duty towards society. Conclusion: It is essential for physicians and medical students to acquire a formal training in values, their role and their meanings. Yet the teaching of values and attitudes is basically ignored in most Ayurveda colleges. The result is that graduate students are ill-equipped and ill-prepared to deal with the complex problems that arise in clinical practice.
