12th Science Biology group students usually set courses like MBBS, BDS, BAMS, Nursing, B.V.Sc., Pharmacy and BHMS as their prime targets. Other than these courses, they are also eligible to pursue some other courses that fall under the category of ‘paramedical courses‘.
Paramedical courses are usually related to the allied healthcare sector. These courses are just as useful and job oriented as the courses directly related to the field of healthcare (nursing, medicine and pharmacy).
Paramedical courses trains students and turns them into skilled and qualified allied healthcare workers and technicians. Along with Doctors and Nurses, allied healthcare workers also play an integral role in the smooth functioning of the healthcare industry in India.
