About the

The M. Sc. Physician Assistant programme is a 2 year postgraduate programme under which, we train students to work as a trained assistant in health care setting to bridge the gap between staff nurse and specialist or super specialist doctor. In this programme student can choose one broad specialty (Either Medicine or Surgery) and three subspecialties allied with same broad specialty. Students will work like a house officer to provide clinical services and acquire necessary skills. Students are trained to provide diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive health care services. As a team member, they take medical histories, perform clinical examinations, write order for laboratory tests and x-rays and assist the doctors in clinical procedures. Further, to develop research attitude they have to complete a dissertation on one topic given by mentor. Students are involved and trained in administrative and record keeping work, which will be supportive to clinician. At the end of two years of training students are competent to work with expert clinician or in tertiary care set up. They are also eligible to hold academic positions in schools of allied health science and train undergraduate students.
