Program Description

This course is designed to meet the academic prerequisites for entry into a Bachelor’s program in Health Sciences and to equip students with the necessary skills to serve as middle-level human health workers. Graduates of this course will be prepared to independently fulfill the role of a health post assistant, as outlined by the Nepal Health Professional Council, in various healthcare institutions both within Nepal and internationally. The program spans three academic years and follows a structured curriculum. In the first year, students delve into basic sciences and foundational subjects. The second year builds on this foundation with a focus on basic medical subjects, both in theory and practical applications. The final year is dedicated to applying acquired knowledge and skills in real-world healthcare settings, such as hospitals or health posts.

The curriculum encompasses a range of subjects that contribute to both the broader medical field and the specialized health worker role. Foundational subjects like English, Nepali, Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics are incorporated using a diffusion model of the curriculum, ensuring their relevance and application in the medical context. Disciplinary subjects related to the medical field are distributed across all three years, providing students with a comprehensive understanding of the field’s intricacies. Notably, the program also integrates project work and real-world practice in specific medical areas. This hands-on approach enhances students’ practical skills and exposes them to the challenges and intricacies of actual healthcare scenarios.

The overarching goal of this curriculum is to produce proficient and highly employable middle-level technical healthcare professionals. By meticulously structuring the curriculum and its subject-wise content, implementers are guided in the process of developing a workforce that is competent, adaptable, and well-prepared to contribute effectively to the medical domain.
