The Hamdard In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Sciences and Re­search (HIMSR), which was es­tab­lished by the Jamia Hamdard Univer­sity last year, started its ad­mis­sion process from April 15. Se­lec­tion for the MBBS pro­gramme will be through the Na­tional El­i­gi­bil­ity cum En­trance Test (NEET)-2013, con­ducted by the Cen­tral Board of Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion.

“Where other un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grammes such as BPharm, BSc (hons), nurs­ing and BUMS (Bach­e­lor of Unani Medicine and Surgery) are con­cerned, can­di­dates hold­ing valid NEET (UG) scores will be given pref­er­ence over oth­ers,” says M Ibrahim, as­sis­tant reg­is­trar of ad­mis­sions at Jamia Hamdard.

“How­ever, sub­ject to the avail­abil­ity of seats, can­di­dates with­out NEET may also be con­sid­ered for ad­mis- sion. This will be done on the ba­sis of their per­for­mance in the Jamia Hamdard en­trance test or on the ba­sis of their per­cent­age score in a qual­i­fy­ing ex­am­i­na­tion,” he adds.

Stu­dents can get the ap­pli­ca­tion forms for the MBBS and un­der­grad­u­ate cour­ses re­lated to bi­o­log­i­cal sciences from the var­sity’s Fac­ulty of Sci­ence build­ing at Hamdard Na­gar on all work­ing days or down­load it from www.jami­a­ham­dard.edu. “The last date for submission of forms is May 30,” in­forms Ibrahim.

About HIMSR, GN Qazi, vice chan­cel­lor, Jamia Hamdard Univer­sity says, “Though a decade back, Jamia Hamdard was reck­oned largely as a cen­tre for ba­sic re­search, to­day world over there is an un­der­stand­ing and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the re­search that it un­der­takes for in­tro­duc­ing break­throughs in the field of medicine – all with a view to im­prove the con­di­tion of the eco­nom­i­cally marginalised sec­tions of so­ci­ety. At one im­por­tant level, set­ting up of this med­i­cal col­lege re­it­er­ates our com­mit­ment to­wards se­cur­ing qual­ity and af­ford­able health­care for all. Train­ing med­i­cal prac­ti­tion­ers and un­der­tak­ing clin­i­cal amia Mil­lia Is­lamia’s (JMI) Cen­tre for Mange­ment Stud­ies is invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for var­i­ous MBA pro­grammes be­gin­ning in the new aca­demic ses­sion 2013.

The cen­tre of­fers twoyear full-time MBA, MBA (ex­ec­u­tive) and MIB pro­grammes. The MBA (ex­ec­u­tive) pro­gramme is for work­ing ex­ec­u­tives and man­agers from the in­dus­try. The cen­tre also con­ducts a PhD pro­gramme in man­age­ment. Th­ese


re­search, specif­i­cally in the field of can­cer and car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­eases are pro­nounced man­dates for HIMSR. We are ini­tially of­fer­ing an MBBS course. How­ever, we plan to launch other med­i­cal cour­ses when per­mit­ted by MCI.”

Na­tional el­i­gi­bil­ity tests con­ducted by var­i­ous government agen­cies are now manda­tory for ad­mis­sion into the var­sity’s pro­fes­sional cour­ses. “For in­stance, a valid score from JEE (Main) 2013 con­ducted by CBSE is manda­tory for the BTech com­puter sci­ence and BTech in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy course. Other tests like GPAT, NET, CAT, MAT etc. are ap­pli­ca­ble for our PhD and other post­grad­u­ate cour­ses,” Qazi adds.

Talk­ing about the new pro­grammes in­tro­duced both at the un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate level Ibrahim says, “Apart from the MBBS pro­gramme, the MSc in­te­grated PhD in med­i­cal phys­i­ol­ogy pro­gramme, BSc op­tom­e­try (BOPT), BSc. Med­i­cal imag­ing tech­nol­ogy (BMIT), BSc op­er­a­tion the­atre tech­niques (BOTT), BSc med­i­cal record and hospi­tal in­for­ma­tion man­age­ment (BMR & HIM), BSc car­di­ol­ogy lab­o­ra­tory tech­niques (BCLT) and BSc dial­y­sis tech­niques (BDT) pro­grammes have been in­tro­duced.”
