The growth in the arena of medical technology has remained really astounding in the past few years. The medical and allied sciences have come a long way and you can expect the same to go further ahead in the upcoming years. The total industry size is, in fact, expected to touch USD280 billion by the year 2020. There have been several ongoing types of research and discoveries in the medical domain that have been in the news in the past couple of months. From the use of nanotechnology to the strides in stem cell technology, the progress has been steady but not slow.
Here are the top trends in medical and related sciences that you need to be aware of, and how we, at the K.R. Mangalam University, are aiding our students to make a space for themselves in the growing medical industry.
- Precision Medicine Liftoffs
The term precision medicine has been at the forefront of discussions and developments all over the world ever since the term received support from the U.S. Presidential quarters. It is an initiative to treat the diseases and prevent them by taking into consideration the variability in genes, lifestyle, and environs of each person. The goal is to create medicines that are more effective for each of the patients. The hope is to build up treatment methodologies that are not just cost-effective but also efficient for each of the specific needs. We, at the K.R. Mangalam University, believe that this is something that the students must aspire to, and hence, the same has been kept as one of the foremost topics of discussion in the workshops and lectures organized by the university. There are several ex-students of the institute that are engaged in researches on this topic in some of the top-rated laboratories around the world.
- Physiotherapy Gaining Ground
If you go back to about six or seven years, you will find that physiotherapy, as a significant brand of medical science, was not even in the scenario. This branch has come to the lead in the past three to four years only. The treatment of injuries right from skeletal disorders, post-operative knee and hip problems to the several neurological issues all comes under the broad arena of treatment through physiotherapy. The current focus of the medical scientists around the world is to cure the injuries and disorders in as much of a non-invasive way as possible and physiotherapy is held as a step in that direction. The opportunities have opened up manifold in this field of allied sciences. We, at the K.R. Mangalam University, count physiotherapy as one of the courses of prime importance. The young medical practitioners at the K.R. Mangalam University, are taught to utilize the knowledge of physiotherapy in the fields of cardiopulmonary, neurological, and orthopedic to get an effective cure in the most effectual way.
- Engaging the Patients:
This is the hottest trend that is doing the rounds in the medical world. The inputs from the patients are being taken into consideration in the medical researches and clinical trials. The circumstantial evidence is building up of the positive impact of the patients’ inputs on the effectiveness and efficiency of research and development. At the K.R. Mangalam University, the new entrants in the world of medicine are taught to respect the patients and their inputs from the very first day of the class. This is a profession that is centered around the patients and their needs, so the first lesson is definitely the fact that the patients comes first. But this is not just in case of their inputs in the reaction to medicines but also in their feedback to the medical trials and research. The aim is to incorporate the patient preferences predominantly.
- The Progress of Pharmaceutical Microbiology
Microbes and the fascination of the medical world around them is nothing new. What is new, however, is how Pharmaceutical Microbiology has turned to be more in demand than ever at present. The microbes are either directly being used in the medicines or the products produced by them are being applied in medicinal research. Several new and potent antibiotics that have been launched in the market since the past year is the evidence of this progression. In fact, steroids have also been developed from the microbes. The students armed with the knowledge of Pharmaceutical Microbiology are also in high demand as a result. They are employed in several government and non-government institutes around the country as researchers, testers, and developers of drugs.
For one to be a part of the recent advancements in the medical sciences, proper training and education are an absolute necessity. The budding medical scientists need to be nurtured well to ensure that they are equipped to contribute to the researches and developments.
To that end, we, at the K.R. Mangalam University, have developed industry-focused courses that have been deliberately sculpted by our experts to provide the aspiring students a detailed insight into the latest developments in the medical industry. We offer undergraduate as well as postgraduate programs that are in line with the present research and progress in the medical sciences. The institute aims to develop the students to make them future ready and skilled enough to effectively contribute to the medical world. Students at the K.R. Mangalam University are meticulously trained to be a part of the ongoing development in the arena of medical sciences. Students are not only prepared on the theoretical aspects but are also imparted detailed practical know-how on the recent trends and practices of medical and allied sciences so that when they step into the world of medicine, they are well-prepared to face whatever comes their way. We can proudly say that students who graduated from the K.R. Mangalam University are today employed with some of the top-ranking government and private organizations of the country and are making valuable contributions in the medical domain.
