Regular Academic Programs:

         With the increased incidence of cancer, more institutions are getting equipped for treatment of cancer. We realize the need for focused training in oncology, especially for medical and paramedical courses. This is a step towards better care for patients in the present milieu. It is already proposed to develop MCC as a Post-Graduate Institute of Oncology.

         All new cases are presented in the Daily Multi Specialty Board which are reviewed and decisions on treatment taken accordingly. Interactive discussions on a specific topic are carried out on all Wednesdays afternoon in the Radiation Oncology Cub. All Thursday morning, lectures on the recent trends in oncological care by one faculty are carried out in the Centre. On Saturdays morning, Journal club/ lecture/ morbidity meet are carried out in the centre. Apart from the regular academic programs, Continuing Medical Education Program for Doctors and Post-Graduate Students of nearby Medical Colleges are organized by MCC.

Bachelor of Science in Medical Radiological Technology (B.Sc. (MRT): Since its inception Malabar Cancer Centre, Thalassery, has grown tremendously in terms of modern equipments, treatment and prevention of cancer. With increasing incidence of cancer, more institutions need to get equipped for treatment of cancer and we realize the need for focused training in oncology. This is a step towards better care for patients in the present milieu and moulding professionally competent Radiology Technologists. Radiological Technology deals with the application of different types of radiations and allied tools for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Radiations of significance are all the ionizing and non ionizing radiations like the complete electromagnetic spectrum – radio waves to cosmic radiation, ultrasound waves and particle type atomic radiations. Besides, use of nuclear magnetic resonance and application of various radio nuclides in medicine also form significant components of this programme.

Graduates in Radiological Technology are professionals who mostly work as technologists in medical institutions. They are in great demand both within India and abroad. Potential for employment abroad for such professionals is tremendous and continues to register a constant upward trend only. Besides, industry engaged in the design, manufacture, and sale of radiological systems of varied types need these graduates as application specialists. Thus, successful candidates who complete this course are sure to get useful employment in the public and private sectors in India as well as abroad. There is a great demand for these professionals in all the developed and developing countries and the present annual intake in such courses worldwide is far short of the requirements. Hence, career opportunities for radiology technologists will continue to be bright and rewarding in the near and distant future.
