Imaging Sciences Imaging Sciences Technologists are health professionals who facilitate diagnosis and management through the creation of images using medical imaging modalities like X-ray, Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance and Computed Tomography.
Clinical Laboratory Technology Clinical Lab. Technology is concerned with the analysis of biological specimens to support diagnosis and treatment of disease. Laboratory Technologists perform a full range of laboratory tests, the information of which influences the medical treatment a patient will receive.
Operation Theatre and Anesthesia Technology The Operation Theatre and Anaesthesia Technologist is responsible for direct and indirect patient care equipment set up, Pre, Intra & Post operative procedures.
The courses include both theoretical & practical knowledge of the Diagnostic Investigations, Therapeutic procedures and Equipments as applicable to the health care sector today. It introduces students to emerging technologies and their applications. Students spend a considerable part of their learning time in hospital set-ups where they are exposed to actual 'hands on' practical training. Each student works on a project related to his / her specialization.
Symbiosis Centre for Health Skills (SCHS) is a multidisciplinary educational facility that strives to provide high –tech simulated and virtually created hospital set-up for teaching, training and assessment for all health care professionals in clinical and related management skills. The broad objective is to align with the National Agenda of Skill Development to create robust and vibrant eco system for quality education and skill development in the healthcare sector in the country. This simulation based training is an integral part of education and training in Medical Technology and helps students to expertise the technical competencies.
As part of their curriculum students are taught additional modules on Management issues relevant to the respective specializations. The students are also trained in soft skills, Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
The Global Immersion Program (GIP), Inter Institute Credit Transfer Program, Liberal Arts & Social Services exposes the students to the external world & helps in the overall development of the student.
