Course Details:

The two-year diploma program has been structured so as to train professionals to assist doctors in the operation theatre and work under the supervision of anesthetists and surgeons. The diploma prepares students for overall management of the operation theatre. An OT Technician’s work includes taking care of the ins and outs of the operation process as well and assisting the surgeon during the operation. Other duties include arranging operation theatre table, dressing table, instrument and anesthesia table, sterilization of all surgical instruments, drapes and linen, facilitating the drugs and anesthetic gases required for surgery.
