VIVO’s outstanding track record in healthcare skill training and Siemens’ pioneering diagnostic lab technology will make for an unparalleled alliance, beneficial to the students.”

The total healthcare industry size is expected to touch US$280 billion by 20201.While we witness growth; there is an enormous shortfall in the numbers of allied healthcare professionals (AHP). Laboratory technicians fall under the category of AHP and India has a massive crunch in these spaces. Laboratory technicians collect fluid, tissue and blood samples to perform a variety of tests. They may work in hospitals, diagnostic labs, blood banks and medical clinics and generally work under the supervision of a pathologist. These technicians work within a team of medical professionals, each performing tasks essential to successful patient care.

This 1,200 hours MLT course offered by VIVO and Siemens Healthineers will be available for Class XII (science) or Phlebotomy students with an experience in laboratory setup.
