The course has been designed to train students to become professional Dialysis Technicians.
This program includes rigorous training of the students for a tedious and responsible task ahead,
i.e. hemodialysis. Through written education and practical drills of the 50-hour long course,
we infuse the skills in you that are a must for taking the responsibility of being a Dialysis Technician.
The demand for such professionals is very high and they are employed in hospitals, healthcare units and
outpatient clinics where they play a vital role as part of the dialysis
team under the supervision of doctors, nurses and senior technicians.
