Bachelor of Science in Medical Microbiology

  • New Semester Starts: -
  • Duration: 4 years
  • University: Pokhara University

The Bachelor of Science in Medical Microbiology at Nobel is a four year program of Pokhara University. Microbiology is one of the youngest branches of biomedical science. The rapid increase in the number of Hospitals, Medical College, Nursing Homes, Health Instition, Pharmaceuticals and Biotechnological Industries, Food Industries both in private and public area over the last decade have accelerated tremendous demand for microbiology. The demand is equally felt in the NGOs and INGOs involve in health care and promotion activities.

Objectives

The main aim of the course is to train students in the field of medical microbiology. Training in both theory and practical is imparted to the students covering all the subspecialties: Systemic and Diagnostic Bacteriology, Prasitology, and Virology, Mycology and Immunology. After graduation, the graduates can work a part of the patient care, disease prevention and control in the community effectively along with active participation as researcher in health research and QC staff in Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic industries. They will be trained with the modern methods of teaching learning and IT skills to enable them to tackle the future assignment in laboratory diagnostic, experimental animal, industrial along with academic ventures. They will also be introduced to basic research methodology so as to enable them to start basic and applied research independently.
