Clinical Medicine & Surgery

Diploma In Clinical Medicine & Surgery

Clinical medicine & Surgery  is most critical profession that gives more emphasis on practice. It focus on healing patients directly through diagnosis, treatment, surgery, prognosis and so on.
In contrast, basic medicine concentrate on studying the laws of human life and disease phenomena, and thus provide necessary theoretical support for clinical practice as part of the efforts to cure patients.

Many developing countries have a shortage of trained doctors. Rural areas are particularly affected, as doctors predominantly congregate in urban areas.
Clinical Officers have now become a more permanent strategy, being described as the “backbone” of healthcare in several settings.

Clinical officers have a separate training programme to medical doctors, but their roles include many medical and surgical tasks usually carried out by doctors, such as anaesthesia, diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions, and prescribing.
