According to Firdous A Wani, University Registrar, "We decided on launching these courses considering the rising importance of healthcare in the field of medicine. Today, the dynamics of the health sector had 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 like 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 newly launched courses will be implemented from the academic session 2012-13 itself.
