Apollo And Stanford Team To Train Emergency Medical Technicians
The collaboration between Apollo Hospitals and the Stanford Emergency Medicine International, US, would be marked by a launch of a first-ever international programme for training of emergency medical technicians in India. The one-year full time programme would be conducted at Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad.

Candidates who have passed Intermediate or an equivalent examination are eligible to enroll for the new educational program. Apollo Hospitals, in a statement here Saturday, said the course would commence from Jan 10, 2006. Faculty deputed from Stanford Emergency Medicine International, US and Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad, will conduct the year-long course leading to the qualifying examination.

"Emergency Medicine, particularly pre-hospital emergency care is rapidly growing in the country and the need for trained and qualified personnel is immense," said Hariprasad, CEO, Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad.

"Without structured training programmes, availability of manpower to operate quality emergency medical systems is virtually non-existent. In such a scenario, candidates enrolling and successfully completing this programme will have excellent career opportunities," he added.
