Value Added Courses

Value added courses are short term courses which deliver content outside the university curriculum. In order to prepare students to meet the healthcare industry demands and aptitudes, to develop interests, to foster quality learning, and to enhance personal growth, value added courses are important. As university curriculum has limitations to cover all areas for student learning, supplementation of the syllabus with such courses is essential for holistic development of students. Such short-term courses help students stand apart from the rest in the job market by adding further value to their resume. These courses add value to students learning and help them to develop skills/ employability. Such courses foster the overall growth of the students.

Enrollment for these short term “Value Added Courses” (>15 hours’ duration) is voluntary in nature and free of cost (some courses which are accredited by external agencies may be available on chargeable basis). Therefore, all students are requested to enroll for “Value Added Courses (VAC)” as per their choice for enhancing their skills & knowledge.

Interested students contact the “Course Coordinators” for respective courses in order to enroll and for any clarification regarding the course. Course completion certificates are awarded to students who successfully complete the course as verified by the course coordinator. In view of COVID-19 pandemic and due to delayed start of academic year 2020-21, some of the courses are being offered on an online mode/blended mode. Since the course is extra-curricular, it is conducted on weekends (Saturday or Sunday) so that the weekly class schedule is not affected. The minimum requirement of the course is 15 students per session.
