High Demand For Skilled Pharma Manpower

The need of skilled manpower in the pharmaceutical industry ranges widely from R&D, Quality Assurance (QA), Intellectual Property (IP), manufacturing to even sales and marketing. Today pharmaceutical industry is, in fact, struggling to retain talent in all these areas, even with lucrative compensation packages, talent development programs together with offering a bright career path. This happens mainly because the demand for talent far outweighs its supply. Pharmaceutical industry has the potential to attract a larger number of talents even during global financial meltdown, as the industry is virtually recession proof.

Adequately skilled, competent and motivated workforce will continue to be at the pinnacle of importance, both in safe and effective delivery of healthcare as well as in fuelling the growth of the pharmaceutical industry in India.

Placement is a crucial interface between the stages of completion of academic program of the students and their entry into the suitable employment. Our placement cell is performing the following activities:

  • Arranging industrial training/ internships/tour for students.
  • Inviting various Pharmaceutical Companies for campus recruitment.

In addition to placement assistance, training & placement cell of Adamas University organizes programs like, Mock interviews, group discussions, case studies, etc. to make the students industry ready.

The purpose and goal of ADAMAS UNIVERSITY is to narrow down the widening gap between University’s educational curricula and the knowledge and skill requirements of industries, sectoral industrial development and country’s economic growth. The University’s motto is therefore expressed in “Creativity, Innovation and Technological leap”.

We go by your needs, innovate according to your thoughts and feedbacks, and groom students to meet your objectives; however we deliver industry ready students using our own strengths and passion.

Overview of the course

The Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Technology (BMLT) is an undergraduate program to be offered by the School of Pharmaceutical Technology, Adamas University, Kolkata.

BMLT is an allied health specialty that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease through the use of clinical laboratory tests. Although medical laboratory technologists spend less time with patients than doctors and nurses do, medical laboratory professionals are equally dedicated to patient health. The fact is that the efficacy of practice of modern medicine is heavily dependent on the detection processes through laboratory tests of specimen of patients and it would be impossible now to detect a disease without laboratory tests.

Who is it for?

The BMLT course is specifically designed for budding minds who desires to know a laboratory’s working techniques and standards in detail. The BMLT course aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to carry out routine laboratory work and some sophisticated laboratory research procedures.

 The importance of this course in the wider discipline area, etc. 

Medical laboratory professionals have unlimited options and scope at various practice settings. Such postgraduates are hired in capacities such as Laboratory Technician, Laboratory Manager, Medical Officer, Research Associate, Medical Record Technician, Resident Medical Officer, Lab Assistant, Laboratory Testing Manager, Associate Professor/Lecturer etc. The employment of clinical laboratory workers is expected to grow as the volume of laboratory tests increases with population growth and the development of new types of tests.
