Philosophy, Vision & Mission

Lourde Institute of Paramedical Sciences’ faculty believes that human beings are holistic and live in ever-changing environment. We believe that health care has a significant role in the society that values the maintenance and improvement of the health of the people along a positive continuum. It is concerned with continual development of the intellect through knowledge and understanding from the substantive constancy in the health care curriculum along with other disciplines.

Professional health care is a practice of discipline with an academic foundation that focuses on health. We prepare health care professionals to function in community and institutional health services, graduate health care professionals to function at the first level positions and have a foundation for continuing professional developments.

The health care knowledge from clinical experience forms the basic and keeps them in the path of skill based training and aids in utilizing modern technology to make judgement in clinical situations. They are also prepared to work as skilful health care providers who are members of health team from other disciplines who consult, support and work to meet the demands of health care institutions.

The faculty view the expansion of knowledge based skill as social process. Knowledge is developed as students and faculty individually and collectively engage in various forms of purposeful activities. We believe in developing each student as a human personality with intrinsic worth and dignity with their will turned towards the well being of humanity.
