Sankara Nethralaya Academy - Allied Health/ Paramedical Courses

The Healthcare industry has emerged as a growth engine for the Indian economy contributing substantially to the increase in the GDP. However, against a world average of around 4 hospital beds per person population India lags behind with ratio of 0.7 indicating insufficient healthcare infrastructure in India. The Healthcare manpower to population ratio in India is also very low as compared to the global norms.

There is a new wave in healthcare. The industry has been growing at the rate of about 16 percent per annum reaffirming that a future in healthcare in truly healthy. The health sector presently employs 4 Million individuals, making it one of the largest service sectors in the economy. Yet despite these fascinating numbers, the industry is starved for health manpower. In the immediate present, the country needs to double the number of doctors, triple the number of nurses and quadruple the number of paramedics. Consequently, this new partnership forged between TSNA and Tamil Dr.M.G.R. Medical University for Paramedical education is a groundbreaking move, encouraging many more such partnerships for the betterment of our nation.

Recently the Government of India had taken up significant steps to address the issues of health manpower by its proposal to establish new institutions for Allied Healthcare professionals with an outlay of around 1.5  crores. As a first mover, in a path breaking move to address the immense need gap for the health manpower, Tamil Nadu Dr.M.G.R. Medical University took on a pioneering initiative to fulfill the requirements for paramedical professionals by inviting select health care providers to promote programs in Allied Science courses.
