India is now going through an epidemiological transition, where infectious diseases are receding as causes of adult morbidity and mortality, whereas non-infectious diseases are assuming menacing proportions. The risk factors associated with changing lifestyle have increased the mortality rate because of coronary heart diseases, diabetes, hypertension and neurological disorders. Sri Shanmugha Institute of Medical Science and Research affiliated to The Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical university, Chennai started in 2018, is a well established Medical College with numerous partner hospitals containing state-of-the-art facilities providing wonderful work experience and training opportunities.

B.Sc. Cardiac Technology

B.Sc. Cardiac Technology or Bachelor of Science in Cardiac Technology is an undergraduate course. Cardiac technology is an area of specialization for allied health professionals. Cardiovascular technologists and technicians assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac (heart) and peripheral vascular (blood vessel) conditions. Cardiac technologists prepare patients for open-heart surgery and the implantation of pacemakers. Technologists monitor patients during these procedures. The course is three years + 1 year internship and career orienting in nature that opens many jobs for them after its successful completion.

Subjects :

I Year – Basic Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Pathology, Microbiology,  Pharmacology, Medical Electronics, Biophysics, ECG, English, Computer Science

II Year – Clinical Features And Treatment Related To CT, Advanced To Electrocardiography, TMT, Echocardiography

III Year – Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory Basics, Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory Advanced

B.Sc. Operation Theatre & Anesthesia Technology

Operation Theatre Technology is a detailed technical occupation in the field of health science. Also recognized by the names Operating Theatre Technicians (OTT), Surgical Scrubs and Operating Room Assistants, these nominal medical professionals are an important part of the operation unit team who work alongside with the surgeon, anesthesiologist and nurse in order to provide quality patient care throughout the surgery.

A wider scope of Operation Theatre Technology is quite prominent in transplant teams, orthopedic clinics, gynecology sections, cancer units, surgery, special care baby units. They are also hired for research, education and training. Some of the professionals are privately hired by doctors, surgeons, physicians or dentists who perform surgery of the patients.

Subjects :

I Year – Basic Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Pathology , English , Computer Science

II Year – Pharmacology, Microbiology, Medicine & Medical Ethics, Principles Of Anaesthesia –I

III Year – Sterilization Procedures, Principles Of Anaesthesia -II

B.Sc Radiography & Imaging Technology

A radiographer produces radiography of patients with the help of an X-ray to find the exact medical condition of the patient. In addition to X-ray, a radiographer also considers CT scans, ultrasounds, and MRI for producing radiography. The radiology field is broadly divided into two areas namely diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. Diagnostic Radiology is the specialization of medicine that uses the images of X-Ray and other imaging techniques to diagnose the disease and injury of the patient. Interventional Radiology is another medical specialty that also uses imaging techniques (X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound) for direction. Patients can be treated and diagnosed using minimally invasive procedures..

Subjects :

I Year – Basic Anatomy, Physiology, General Physics,Radiation Physics, Radiographic Equipments

II Year – Clinical Radiography, X Ray Film, Contrast & Special Radiography

III Year – Equipments Of Advanced Modalities, Modern Imaging Techniques, Quality Control

B.Sc Optometry

Bachelor of Science degree in Optometry field provides extensive training and medical knowledge about the human eye. Apart from making the fundamentals of the human eye clear, this course will also teach how to operate various types of medical equipment that are a must for every optometry student and practitioner to know.
Communication skills will also be focused on since it is imperative that the students know how to properly communicate with patients. The duration of the course is three years (four years in some universities which include one year of internship) and it is an important and career orienting in nature which provides widespread scopes to the candidates.

Subjects :

I Year – Physical Optics, Geometric Optics I, Geometric Optics Ii, General Anatomy, General Physiology, Ocular Anatomy, Ocular Physiology, Basic Biochemistry I, Basic Biochemistry Ii, Nutrition

II Year – Ocular Diseases (1 &II), Visual Optics I&II, Optometric Instruments, Pathology, Microbiology, Pharmacology

III Year – Binocular vision , Glaucoma , Low vision aids , Dispensing Optics , Pediatric Optometry and Geriatric Optometry, Contact lens , Law & optometry and Occupational Optometry

B.Sc. Medical Laboratory Technology

Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Technology or BSc MLT is an undergraduate course of 3-year, which is divided into six years (two semesters per year). In this course professionals are taught about various aspects of health care. The students perform various diagnostic analysis on body fluids, which include hematology, bacteriology, immunologic, chemical and microscopic during the course. The subjects taught in the program are Clinical Endocrinology & Toxicology Lab, Diagnostic Molecular Biology Lab, and Diagnostic Cytology etc.

III Year – Biochemistry, Coagulation And Transfusion Medicine , Immunohematology, Microbiology-II

B.Sc. Cardiac Care Perfusion Care Technology

Cardiovascular perfusion is the science of providing extracorporeal circulation in order to artificially support and temporarily replace a patient’s respiratory and circulatory systems. Clinical Perfusionists are expert members of the cardiac surgical team, and provide lifesaving support of patients requiring extracorporeal circulation, including but not limited to major cardiothoracic, vascular and transplant surgeries, as well as support of the critically-ill patient.
Cardiovascular Perfusionists are important members of the open-heart surgical team whose primary role is to conduct cardiopulmonary bypass using a heart-lung machine and other ancillary equipment. They closely monitor the patient’s blood flow and other vital signs during open heart surgery and are also responsible for administering intravenous fluids, blood products and anesthetic drugs
