Paramedical staff has become an essential part of modern healthcare system. They assist the doctors in hospitals, operation theaters, private clinics and pathological labs. No hospital can be run without paramedics. Basically paramedics are healthcare technicians who assist the physicians for performing different kinds of technical tasks. There is a great demand of qualified paramedical staff all over the world. Majority of paramedics work in two shifts. In morning they perform their duty in government hospitals and in evening they work in private hospitals, labs and clinics.
