Lahore, Sep 09: Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education Lahore has
decided to grant affiliation to different institutions for introduction
of two-year FSc in Medical Technology bringing the medical technology
courses in the main stream of education.
The six technologies to
be taught in FSc in Medical Technology will be physiotherapy, medical
lab technology, dental hygiene, medical imaging technology, laser,

Health Sciences. And now the paramedical diploma courses including
medical lab technicians, dispenser (category C), dental hygienist,
radiographic technician, dental technician and operation theatre
technicians will be conducted by Punjab Medical Faculty of Health

courses of Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm D), BSc Physiotherapy and BSc
The institutions conducting medical technology
courses had no mechanism and infrastructures to conduct examinations of
these technologies and hence faced many problems putting a question
mark on the efficacy of these certificates. Usually the certificates
were granted on the basis of experience and working in the respective
fields in government hospitals and dispensaries and viva voce.
to the arrangements, the government and private institutions providing
these courses at their campuses will be affiliated with the Board to
conduct their examinations in line with the existing system of Part I
and Part II Intermediate.
The step will regularise the
certification of medical technologies courses and will bring these
courses at par with the Intermediate Science group leading to higher
education in the same discipline.
The admission to these
technologies at the FSc level is open to the students after
matriculation. This year the institutions that would enrol the students
would get registration of their students from the Board and send the
registration returns as per the schedule of the Board prescribed for
Most of the institutions, however, which
provide two years courses in medical technology, are in private sector.
The medical educationists and public circle have welcomed the step
saying that it will improve the quality of education in paramedical
education as well as practice besides improving the standard of health
services. The nation

in rural areas, centres can be established for 100 girl candidates.

second week of February. The results of both examinations will be
