Department of Operation Theatre (OT)

An operating theater is a facility within a hospital where surgical operations are carried out in a sterile environment. An operation theatre (OT) technologist forms an intrinsic part of any hospital. She/he is a member of a multidisciplinary team in operation theaters who plays an active role in the smooth functioning of the operation theatre. OT technologist assists anesthesiologist and surgical team during preoperative, intraoperative period and provides support to patients in Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). OT technologist plays an important role in advance preparation of equipment that is necessary for various anesthesia / surgical procedures. OT technologist also looks after all the works including and management of the OT which includes managing the patients in & out of operation theatre, care and maintenance of all the OT equipment as well as management of the staff.

The course is planned in such a way that students not only get theoretical knowledge through classroom teaching but also focus on practical training. Different industrial visits and events are organized by the department to impart the in-depth knowledge of the students.

Regular summer and winter training/ internship programs are conducted in various hospitals and health care centres to provide specialized professional training so that the students can seek jobs as OT Technologists in professional institutions, government, and voluntary organizations.
