The program contents would be covered in about 500 contact hours. There are two alternate modes in which this is planned to be carried out -
Full Time Program:
4 months, 5 days a week (Mon - Fri), two sessions of 3 hours per day during 9.00 AM to 5.00 PM.
About half the time would be for Theory classes, and the rest for lab classes, demonstrations, seminars, visits to hospitals, CROs, CRO firms, pharma companies, bio laboratories, and a Project/Internship.
The Project/Internship Work would be of over 100 hours duration and is an integral part of the program. In terms of academic value, the program contents inclusive of Project/Internship would be equivalent to over 22 credits of a normal university academic program.
Part Time Program:
The Curriculum will be same as of full time program, but would be administered during evening hours and over weekends.
The part time program would be covered in the weekends, ie on Saturdays, Sundays and on Holidays.
Four sessions of each 2 hrs would be covered in a day from 8.30 A.M to 6.30 P.M.
The Project/Internship Work would be of duration of over 100 hours and is an integral part of the program and one should do it on a full time manner. The candidate need not attend the University while doing the Project/Internship.
