Para Medical Courses in interdisciplinary medical
subjects are becoming enormously important in Health
Care Systems. In the recent years, there has been a
growing need for qualified and well-trained Para
Medical personnel who form an integral component of
medical profession. In order to meet the increasing
demand for qualified and trained Para Medical
personnel it is necessary to impart the training to
the eligible and interested students.
The Para Medical Board formed by the Government of
Karnataka is having overall control over the Govt.
and Pvt. Institutions running Para Medical Courses
in the State. The main functions of the Board are
grant of affiliation, regulate admissions and
control the functioning of Institutions running Para
Medical courses with respect to importing quality
education programme and conduction of examinations.
The Man Power Committee constituted by the Govt. of
Karnataka has emphasized that there is an acute
shortage of Para Medical personnel in our State.
Taking this into consideration the State Govt. has
constituted this Board in the year 1997 to control
and to conduct the Para Medical Courses.
