Launched by Vivo Healthcare Institute, the short-term courses are designed to prepare young people for careers in emergency medical care
New Delhi: Vivo Healthcare Institute has launched two-short term courses for Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) for both working professionals and students, enabling them to secure rewarding career in booming healthcare industry.
With a 100 percent placement support, these programs will upgrade skills of healthcare professionals with diploma and degrees in Nursing (GNM) B Pharma and BSc Life Sciences as well as 10+2 students to become Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) in government, private hospitals, NGOs and health and safety departments of corporate companies.
For healthcare professionals, the duration of Emergency Medical Technician (Basic) course is two months while it is four months course for 10+2 students with Science background. The institute is also offering another highly useful training programâBasic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) âto train people for critical response during the medical emergencies. This program is certified by American Heart Association (AHA).
With these programs we intend to prepare young people for careers in emergency medical care in a variety of situations and institutions. The Compassionate caregivers that come out of VIVO are required in numerous situations and industries. It will benefit the healthcare industry by filling the lacunae that exist due to the absence of trained personnel to handle emergencies and set a new standard for first response in emergencies in the country, Vivo Healthcare spokesperson Vikas Tripathi said.
Reports say that there were no emergency medical technicians in India less than a decade ago, and only about 10,000 have been trained since 2005 in the nation of 1.2 billion. By contrast, the United States has 240,000 for a population that is a fourth of India’s.
With so many hospitals coming up and their numbers likely to grow in the next 10 years, the need for well qualified and trained EMT staff providing emergency care is increasing.
Vivo Healthcare Institute is the academic initiative of Vivo Healthcare, Indias premier organization in Emergency Medical Services.
