Creating talented Workforce for the Healthcare sector

Paramedics - Charnock Healthcare Institute
College of Paramedics
 
Paramedics are qualified medical personnel who work alongside the Doctors, Nurses etc. in treating the patients. They can be typically employed in the ICU, OT, Emergency, Ambulances and Trauma units, various departments of hospital etc.

In modern days Paramedical Science has emerged as an important branch of medical science. Without paramedics the entire health industry is out of gear and almost non functional. Keeping this in mind Charnock Healthcare Institute has launched the first Paramedic College in West Bengal offering full time regular degree courses under the affiliation of WBUHS (which is the premier Govt. University offering MBBS, MD, MS, MCh degree). The curriculum is industry oriented and taught by eminent faculty of the medical fraternity. Hands-on practical training is done at parent and affiliate hospitals.
