CHENNAI: With the Government Multi-Super Specialty Hospital receiving tremendous response from the public, the Omandurar complex will open its doors for education from this academic year.

The State government has given its nod to start 16 paramedical courses, including four diploma courses, for the year 2014-15. Officials at the Directorate of Medical Education said classes would begin after an admission call is made in August.

The hospital, which was also to include a college, will offer four two-year diploma courses in medical record technician, medical laboratory technician, radio diagnostic technician and radio technology technician.

Fourteen one-year certificate programmes will also be offered for those interested in becoming technicians in cardio cath lab, emergency care, dialysis, anaesthesia, theatre, ECG and EMG, respiratory care, cardio sonography, pump technician, clinical therapeutic nutrition and food service management and multi-purpose hospital worker course.

Students, who have completed Class XII, are eligible to apply for these courses, officials said.

While these technical courses are already available in 19 State-run government medical colleges, here the students will have both theory and practical classes at the hospital premises.

“We have got permission for a total of 347 seats. We will advertise admission to these courses in August and subsequently admissions will begin,” said Dr S Geethalakshmi, Director of Medical Education. However, officials said there won’t be counselling for admissions and candidates will be interviewed.

The Government Multi-Super Specialty Hospital, which started functioning this February, has eight departments and is equipped to handle complex cases and gives priority to referral cases.
