Welcome to College of Paramedical Sciences
Gateway to an Intellectual Destination...
The College of Paramedical Sciences was established in the year 2010 to provide trained, qualified, technical personnel in the field of Paramedical Science to support the medical profession. The objective of the Paramedical Science education programme is to ensure that educational opportunities for development of skills. The emphasis of the Paramedical Science education programme is on developing a cadre of small entrepreneurs, especially from amongst girls, women & rural youth.
Paramedics form an essential part of pre-hospital emergency services, providing primary medical and trauma care. Paramedics need to work in rotational shifts and must have the presence of mind to take right decisions during an emergency.

A person working in the field of Para - Medicine must be well acquainted with medical equipment maintenance procedures, radio operating procedures as well as emergency vehicle operation.
The College of Paramedical Sciences conducts specialized training in four disciplines by qualified professionals.
- Forensic Science discipline provides exposure and practical training for investigation of accident and crime scenes. Study of Radiography and Imaging Technology prepares professionals and technicians proficient in use and interpretation of radiological imaging technologies using XRay, Color Doppler, Ultrasound, EEG, CT- Scan and MRI.
- Medical Laboratory Technology focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases through clinical laboratory technologies.
- Optometry discipline trains ophthalmic technicians who can assess ocular motility disorders and errors of refraction. A paramedic may find opportunities to work in government hospitals, private hospitals, clinics and trauma centers. Paramedical professionals can work as medical lab technicians, radiography technicians, radiologists, physiotherapists, speech therapists and audiologists, dialysis therapists, emergency technicians, emergency care practitioners, perfusion technicians, cardiac technicians, and respiratory therapists.
