ABOUT DEPARTMENT

The Centre for  Clinical  Biochemistry has been  established with the  initial financial assistance from UGC under Innovative Programme  Scheme.The main aim of the centre has been to offer quality research and excellent teaching learning opportunities in the emerging field of Clinical Biochemistry. With a vision to produce manpower with sound technical knowhow in the field of diagnostic health care system, the mission is to serve the society to its maximum. The centre is achieving the mission by imparting  two years Master’s programme (MSc Clinical Biochemistry) to students, giving them exhaustive theoritical imputs blended with practical hospital based trainings. Candidates with undergraduate degrees in Clinical Biochemistry, Medicine (MBBS), Pharmacy (B. Pharm), Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Biotechnology, Microbiology, Environmental Science and Biochemistry are admitted for the course.

Four batches have already passed out successfully and a good number of them have been enrolled for PhD/research programmes at various prestigious places of international repute like Oxford University, London, University of Masachussets Medical school USA, AIIMS New Delhi, National Institute of Nutrition Hyderabad, NII New Delhi, CDFD Hyderabad, IISc. Bangalore, IIT Mumbai, NCBS Banglore, IIIM Jammu, Hamdard University and JMI New Delhi  to name a few. A good number of our students have passed the National level tests, like CSIR-UGC NET-JRF, ICMR/DBT-JRF held in 2009, 2010 and 2011.Having practically started in  the year 2005, the course has been primarily designed to act as an interface between clinical & non-clinical aspects of Biochemistry. This is the the only  course in this university which offers a fullfledged six months internship/hospital  based training programme conducted at various institutions of national & international repute....more
