Diploma in Hospital Sterilisation Technology

Diploma in Hospital Sterilisation Technology in CMC Vellore’s Chittoor campus

(Awarded by the Christian Medical College Vellore Association)

All hospitals, nursing homes and clinics providing diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical services require sterile instruments, articles and materials. The provision of sterile supplies is a comprehensive process involving cleaning, inspecting, packing, appropriate sterilization, safe storage and timely supply and is carried out by a Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD), staffed by technicians trained to carry out these activities. This course aims to provide the knowledge and practical training required for a Hospital Sterilization Technician capable of running a central sterile supply or operation theatre sterile supply service.

Keeping in mind the above objective, the syllabus of this two-year course, divided into four semesters, consists of lectures and practical hands-on training in sterilization techniques. The final semester teaches workplace safety, legal and ethical issues, regulatory requirements, protocols and other administrative skills to complement the theoretical and practical knowledge required to function as a competent sterilization technician. Examinations, both theory and practical, will be conducted at the end of each year. A six-month internship will provide exposure to work in smaller setups as well. Research during the course is encouraged.

After completion of the diploma in Hospital Sterilization Technology, it is expected that the candidate will be suitable for employment in a central sterile supply department or a theatre sterile supply unit, in health care organisations in India and overseas. The diploma is awarded by the Christian Medical College Vellore Association.
