The BSc (H) in Biomedical Science is specially designed to cover a broad range of basic as well as interdisciplinary areas in biological and chemical sciences. This course was introduced in the year 1999 by Acharya Narendra Dev College (ANDC) and now is also offered by Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences and Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences.
The course is a comprehensive and dynamic program with long-term career prospects including research, education, management and specialised laboratory work. What distinguishes this course from the rest is the mandatory requirement to carry out a short-term research project, under the guidance of a distinguished scientist using state-of-the-art facilities in collaboration with research institution and pharma/biotech industries.
The curriculum has been structured to impart indepth knowledge of medical biochemistry, microbiology, clinical and medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, genetics, cell and molecular biology, physiology, pathology, immunology and toxicology.
Students are educated through highly interactive sessions, which give them ample opportunity for self-expression. Regular assignments, assessments, presentations, seminars and research projects are some of the mandates of the course.
This course requires an aptitude for research, innovation and inclination to learn beyond the text books. Those of you, who have enthusiasm, energy to work for long hours and motivation to find solutions to myriad unresolved complexities in the area of biomedical science…here lies the opportunity!
The candidates who have passed the Class XII examination with PCB (Biology/Biotechnology) with at least 55 per cent marks and a language as subjects are eligible to apply. Admission to this course is through an entrance examination consisting of a written test.
Marks obtained in Class XII are also considered in the overall merit.
The course has the advantage of providing the student with the appropriate background for further studies either for a research career or it enables entry into academic programs related to medical, health and biotechnology sectors. Therefore, the demand for highly skilled biomedical scientists capable of performing and analysing is ever increasing.
