Need for the course

Although there are lots of Universities and Colleges in India, imparting MSc degrees in Biochemistry, a specialized course in Clinical Biochemistry is still lacking. There are few courses run by selected medical colleges, giving MD degree for MBBS graduates and MSc degree of Medical Biochemistry for Science graduates. However, seats for this course are very limited. A course on Clinical Biochemistry is not available anywhere in India.

Those who pass the examination will be able to man and supervise the activities of the clinical laboratories. At the moment, the availability of seats to various MSc / MD courses in the universities is limited, and that too the speciality of clinical biochemistry is not emphasized. The number of positions available in the clinical laboratories in the country far exceeds the availability of suitably qualified persons.
