HIMSR to offer Six New Healthcare Courses

Hamdard Institute of Medical Sciences & Research ( HIMSR ) of Jamia Hamdard University has set up its new medical college along with launching six new health – related courses in addition to the existing MBBS course.

Apart from the medical college, HIMSR will have a dental college and an institute for hospital and healthcare management. The institute will offer courses at undergraduate, postgraduate and post – doctoral levels in medical and allied subjects.

HIMSR New Courses Introduced include :

  • BSc in Medical Imaging Technology,
  • BSc in Medical Record and Health Information Management,
  • BSc in Optometry,
  • BSc in Cardiology Laboratory Techniques,
  • BSc in Operation Theatre Techniques
  • BSC in Dialysis Techniques.

This year 100 students ( 42 general, 43 reserved and 15 management quota ) will be given admission to the courses. In terms of research, the focus will be on oncology ( cancer ), diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

According to Firdous A Wani, University Registrar, “We decided on launching these courses, considering the rising importance of healthcare in the field of medicine. 25th September, 2012, the dynamics of the health sector has changed and there is a growing demand for trained professionals to handle the many technicalities involved in various medical procedures. These courses will cater to that need.”

The courses in imaging technology, operation theatre technique and cardiology lab techniques are imperative in the current day scenario. In India, doctors still handle the technical aspects, besides doing their actual job.

The courses will be implemented from the 2012 – 13 academic session itself.
