Bachelors in Radiology. Vocational Education or Vocational Education and Training (VET), also called as Career and Technical Education (CTE), prepares learners for jobs that are based in manual or practical activities, in which the learner participates & learns. It is sometimes referred to as technical education, as the learner directly develops expertise in a particular group of techniques or technology. Generally, vocation and career are used interchangeably. Vocational education might be classified as teaching procedural knowledge. This may contrast with declarative knowledge as used in education in a usually broader scientific field, which might concentrate on theory and abstract conceptual knowledge, characteristic of tertiary education. All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), the apex body for making and maintaining the norms of Technical Education in the country has framed National Vocational Education Qualification Framework (NVEQF) for the paramedical colleges. It is important that a Vocational Educational Qualification Framework is in place that allows cross mobility of standards and their absorption in Industry with certain skill gained over a fixed period of time or their seamless integration into higher learning that enable them to acquire formal degree and higher skill so that they perform higher level jobs in industry. Today is an era of digital information. Students are constantly encouraged by faculty to get in touch with the current streams of the subjects in form of seminar/presentation/video lecturers/expert sessions etc. With this aspiration in mind, Parul University has established Faculty of Vocational Education to promote inter-disciplinary studies of Vocational Education with the specialization of the following with both diploma and degree courses. Objectives Promotion of Quality in Technical Education. Planning and Co-ordination of Development in Technical Education System Regularize and maintain the Norms and Standards. Vision “To be the world class institute in leading technological and socioeconomic development of the Country by enhancing the global competitiveness of technical manpower and by ensuring high quality technical education to all sections of the society.” Mission Improve linkages between higher secondary schools offering vocational education Provisions to allow students to select both academic and vocational subjects as their mandatory subjects. Increase the chances for self employment in times of need. Subjects taught are based on skill and practical work experience. Adapting courses according to local needs and conditions to improve mobility and employability of students. Teaching Methodology Uniqueness of the Vocational programme at Parul University will be its teaching methodology. Teaching will be student centric with aim at holistic development of the students. Every subject, every class, every activity and every exercise will be directed to achieve learning outcomes that will finally contribute to the graduate attributes. It is a proven fact that 20% of learning takes place by hearing, 30 % by seeing and 50% by doing things by oneself. Therefore more emphasis will be on experiential learning. Under the Faculty of Vocational Education, seminars have been organized on regular basis wherein several healthcare professionals and practicing surgeons/clinicians participated on a common platform to discuss the present need and future avenues of skill-based education in paramedical/healthcare sector. Such type of activities are also under pipeline in areas of specialization such as Operation Theatre Assistance, Radiology, Ophthalmology, Emergency Medical Services, Dialysis technology and others in which experts and students will unite on a common platform. Specialisation Blood Bank Technology Emergency Medical Services Medical Laboratory Technology Medical Records and Health Information Operation Theatre Anesthesia and Critical Care Cardiology Endoscopy Neurology Radiography Renal Dialysis Optometry Seminar Seminars provide students an opportunity to gain knowledge and insight from the experts in the field and a chance to interact with the experts on an open platform. Such events help the students bridge the knowledge they learn with what is going on around the world. Importance of training based learning in Paramedical and Healthcare sector Under the Faculty of Vocational Education, seminars have been organized on regular basis wherein several healthcare professionals and practicing surgeons/clinicians participated on a common platform to discuss the present need and future avenues of skill-based education in paramedical/healthcare sector. Such type of activities are also under pipeline in areas of specialization such as Operation Theatre Assistance, Radiology, Opthalmology, Emergency Medical Services, Dialysis technology and others in which experts and students will unite on a common platform. Field Visits Field visits provide students an opportunity to break open from the classroom environment and learn from real-life scenarios and practical experiences shared by the people from the society. Students learn beyond textbook blackboard by reorienting their knowledge onto the scenarios they are exposed to. Moreover, they also get to know the working of any organization/society at a grass-root level. Divine Pathology Laboratory Faculty of Vocational Education organized field visit in a commercial medical laboratory wherein students visited different departments and understood the functioning of routine testing methodologies, protocols and difficulties experienced on day-to-day basis. Several demonstrations were also been conducted by professional staff and the owner Dr. Kaushik D. Patel to the students enriching them on real-life, on-field job scenarios and procedures giving an exposure that enriched their learning experience. Hospital “A cherished dream of Parul Trust found its fulfillment with the creation of “Parul Sevashram Hospital” in 2012 to provide an integrated healthcare facility & services to all sections of the society and transform our much valued vision of “Health for All” into reality.” As a part of the Vocational Curriculum, Faculty of Vocational Education incorporates rich training schedule for the students of Degree of Vocational Education (B.Voc) in their respective specialized departments such as Operation Theatre Assistance, Radiology, Opthalmology, Emergency Medical Services, Dialysis technology and others in which, every week students spend atleast 6 hours of training in the hospital under practicing physicians/surgeons and learn all theoretical knowledge through practice. thereby orienting them towards a work culture and learn working ethics that they will be a part of in the future. Faculty of Vocational Education believes on practice based learning for students co-aligning with the vision of the MHRD and AICTE under NSQF. Institute also provides guidance of different diagnostic tools used in hospitals and detailed information regarding instruments used in hospitals. [-]
