3-YEAR B.Sc. Dialysis Therapy
in collaboration with
FORTIS HEALTHCARE

Dialysis is a procedure to keep the body running as normal as possible while the kidneys are under repair or while a person waits for a kidney transplant. Without working kidneys or dialysis, salts and other waste products would accumulate in the blood and poison the person. Typical haemodialysis treatments (using an artificial kidney) last about four hours and are needed about three times a week.

Dialysis therapists work with people whose kidneys no longer work properly or at all. Also sometimes referred to as hemodialysis technologists or patient care technologists (PCTs); they operate machines that remove wastes, salt, and extra water from patients’ blood while keeping safe levels of certain chemicals. The therapists prepare patients for dialysis, monitor them and the machine during dialysis, and perform required procedures when dialysis is completed

Scope

Dialysis Assistants work with the Dialysis Therapist to plan implementation of the dialysis prescription, perform hemodialysis, manage various intra-dialytic complications and document patient data. The Dialysis Therapist works with the Head of Department/ Senior Dialysis Therapist to supervise the hemodialysis assistants and auxiliary personnel, manage intra-dialytic complications, documents and maintains dialysis patient records.

Employability

On completion of the course of study having successfully passed the examination, the candidate would be able
to achieve a satisfactory level of efficiency:

  • Graduates can expect to be employed in hospitals and private practices as dialysis therapists. A career in research, following the completion of a higher degree such as a PhD, is an option chosen by some graduates.
