Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Medical Technology
As technology advances and better investigative and treatment options are introduced, the need for professionals equipped to handle newer diagnostic modalities are on the rise. The ever changing & expanding horizon of the health care sector demands formal training programmes in all its allied areas. The diagnostics sector, today is witnessing a tremendous growth in terms of volume and sophistication. With increasing advances and super specialization, the scope for tomorrow’s technologists does not remain limited to just routine tests. Advanced complex instrumentation & equipment require technocrats not only to operate but also to care & maintain them as well. These experts have to possess a strong scientific foundation & be able to perform at a much higher level than the traditionally trained technicians of the past. The students thus trained in the technological aspects of medical care with a strong scientific foundation will be in a position to competently assist the Physician or Surgeon, especially in high-tech medical procedures to cater to the health care industry globally.
SIHS offers a B.Sc. Medical Technology program with 9specializations: Cardiac Care, Respiratory Therapy, Imaging Sciences, Clinical Laboratory, Dialysis Technology, OT & Anesthesia, Neurosciences Technology, Laparoscopy & Endoscopy and Ophthalmic Sciences.
In the B.Sc. Medical Technology program, students undergo rigorous training for 3 years where they learn various modalities under their specializations and understand their working principles and their operations protocols. Before they are deputed for clinical training, they are first sensitized and trained in developing and mastering the necessary techniques & skills required prior to exposure to hospital in a simulated environment. They are then exposed to live cases and ‘hands-on’ training at Symbiosis University Hospital & Research Center (SUHRC), and associated healthcare organizations. The pedagogy includes synchronous & asynchronous academic sessions, demonstrations, discussions, quizzes, presentations and practicals.
After completion of 1st year, students undergo “Observership”, equipping them with practical “hands-on” skills to enhance their career advancement, in various departments of hospital for a better understanding of the specialization they would like to pursue. Students undergo Summer Internships & ‘On-Job Training’ (OJT) in the Hospitals - Private & Government, Healthcare organizations, Medical Equipment companies, Diagnostic centers & services & Research Institutes giving them a direct exposure to the Healthcare Industry.
Eligibility Criteria – Std. XII Pass with any two of the following subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Botany, Zoology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Mathematics OR equivalent as decided by competent authority.
Working Professionals: For the candidates who have educational qualification and work experience in Cardiac Care, Respiratory Therapy, Imaging Sciences, Clinical Lab, Dialysis or Operation Theatre and Anesthesia, admissions will be given directly to 2nd year, subject to approval of the SIU.
Important: It is the responsibility of the Candidates to ascertain whether they possess the requisite qualifications for admission. Having been admitted provisionally does not mean acceptance of eligibility. Final eligibility for admission will be decided by Symbiosis International University.

Each credit is assessed for 25 Marks. For all external courses internal assessment will be of 40% and external assessment will be of 60%. Practicals will be 100% external. Internal courses will be evaluated 100% internally by the institute.
STANDARD OF PASSING
The assessment of the student for each examination is done, based on relative performance. Maximum Grade Point (GP) is 10 corresponding to O (Outstanding). For all courses, a student is required to pass both internal and external examination separately with a minimum Grade Point of 4 corresponding to Grade P. Students securing less than 40% absolute marks in each head of passing will be declared FAIL. The University awards a degree to the student who has achieved a minimum CGPA of 4 out of maximum of 10 CGPA for the program.
AWARD OF DEGREE
B.Sc.(Medical Technology) Degree will be awarded at the end of 3 years, taking into consideration the performance of the candidate in all examinations conducted throughout the three years.
