CHENNAI:There is ample scope in allied health science (paramedical courses) these days, with the medical hospitality industry requiring more trained and qualified nurses, technicians and support staff to help the industry grow as a whole, said Dr M V Ashok Babu, visiting faculty at the career counseling session conducted by the Sankara Netralaya Academy on Saturday.

Addressing over 100  +2 students and their parents,  Ashok said the medical sector is able to make up about 40 per cent of the staffing requirement required for paramedical personnel, but there is a need for qualified paramedical support personnel to help augment the growth of the industry which is evolving very fast.  Responding to queries about the scope of these courses, he said, “Students can not only be employed, but also study ahead till the doctorate level and be exposed to the manufacturing sector as well, if they take up the allied health science courses offered.”
