Overview

B.Sc in Allied Health Science with Specializations in Dialysis Technology is an undergraduate program from Jain (Deemed-to-be) University. Dialysis technologist also plays an innovative role in Human Organ Transplantations as a Transplant Coordinator. It is now widely recognized that health service delivery is a team effort involving both clinicians and non-clinicians, and is not the sole duty of physicians and nurses. Professionals that can competently handle sophisticated machinery and advanced protocols are now in high demand. In fact, diagnosis is now so dependent on technology, that allied and healthcare professionals (AHPs) are vital to successful treatment delivery. Effective delivery of healthcare services depends largely on the nature of education, training and appropriate orientation towards community health of all categories of health personnel, and their capacity to function as an integrated team.
