Paramedical in India is in need of people who are trained to meet the growing needs of the healthcare sector. It has become one of India’s largest sector – both in terms of revenue and employment. This sector comprises hospitals, medical devices, clinical trials, outsourcing, telemedicine, medical tourism, health insurance and medical equipment. This healthcare sector is growing at a brisk pace due to its strengthening coverage, services and increasing expenditure by public as well as private players. This Industry at present is considered to be among the most dynamic industries with amole number of job opportunities. Over 20 million new jobs are expected to be generated by 2021, as per a report titled ‘India’s new Opportunities-2021’. This paramedical Industry also has advantages over other developing countries as a global hub for medical tourism.
This is a time of Globalization of education. Indian government also promoting privatizing of the education on the pattern of western countries or also promoting non-government organization to come forward to meet the need of Hospital providing job oriented courses and training.
Hence Paramedical sector in India is in need of skilled and efficient personnel who are excellent in medical science. Currently every city in India is witnessing a growth in the hospitals. This has resulted in a significant gap between the need and demand for trained and efficient health care personnel. In next 20years, India will have to add up at least one lakh beds each year in order to meet the needs of the healthcare industry. Further, it is estimated that every bed will account for about five direct and 25 indirect job opportunities in this sector. Therefore, It’s a clear indication that the Indian healthcare sector will dominate the economy in future and there will be a huge demand for trained healthcare professionals in the Indian market.
Paramedical Science is an integral part of the Health Care System. It plays a significant role in medical science for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Study of diagnostic tools used in the clinical laboratory, X- ray, Ultra Sound, other invasive or non- invasive methods, therapeutic technical modes like physiotherapy, occupational therapy along with speech therapy are important components of the paramedical system. Since there is an acute shortage of radiographers, ECG technicians, OT technicians and audio motorists in the country. Radiography and Imaging Technology prepares professionals and technicians proficient in use and interpretation of radiological imaging technologies using X- Ray, Color Doppler, ultra sound, EEG, CT- Scan and MRI imaging. Medical Laboratory Technology focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases through clinical laboratory technologies.

Research invent new equipment& systems in healthcare’s technical sector like Ultrasound, X-rays, ECG, Endoscope, C.T. Scan , Laparoscope, Lithotripsy and Dialysis etc. recently invention are analyzer,(it is very economically and useful for self-employment) which are very useful for Diagnostic and treatment purpose whole of the world as well as India, but the Doctors invest a big time with these modern machines without trained technical staff also it is tiredly and busiest task for the specialist which can decrease their efficiency and without trained and technical assistance they are helpless to conduct research work. Beside it that is not only difficult but quite impossible to diagnose a patient and test the disease without technical assistance. So there is a great demand of medical technicians in various medical fields in India and abroad at present.
