MD in Bio-Chemistry at Sharda University is a three-year postgraduate programme that deals with the study of structure, composition and chemical reaction of substances in living systems. The goal of the post-graduate programme in Biochemistry is to empower students to conceptualise and explain biochemical events of life processes in health and disease and enable them to apply biochemical knowledge and skills for problem-solving in clinical situations and scientific research to help further understanding of life processes at the molecular level.

Aiming at Professional Development & Mentoring the curriculum of this programme offers students with opportunities to build a career in a variety of sectors, including research and non-research careers in biotechnology, academia, government, or wherever they may opt to work after completing their degree. The academic coursework includes core classes incorporating principles of biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology and genetics with laboratory techniques, statistics, and advanced electives. Highly experienced and skilled professionals and faculty members provide well structured and elaborative training and learning sessions to the students.

Program Educational Objectives (PEO)

A post graduate student having qualified the MD (Biochemistry) examination should be able to:

PEO 1:explain clearly concepts and principles of biochemistry and cell biology, including correlations of these with cellular and molecular processes involved in health and disease.

PEO 2:effectively teach undergraduate students in medicine and allied health science courss so they become competent health care professionals and able to contribute to training of postgraduate post graduate students.

PEO 3:set up/supervise/manage a diagnostic laboratory in Biochemistry in a hospital, ensuring quality control, and providing a reliable support service.

PEO 4:provide clinicians with consultation services for diagnostic tests in biochemistry and in interpretation of laboratory results using an ethical and professional approach

PEO 5:carry out a research project from planning to publication and be able to pursue academic interests and continue life-long learning to become more experienced in all the above areas and to eventually be able to guide postgraduates in their thesis work.

Program Outcomes (PO’s)

The student during the training program should acquire the following competencies:
  A. Cognitive domain 
PO1:      Describe and apply biochemical principles ,molecular and metabolic conditions to explain the normal state, abnormal disease conditions and mechanism 
PO2:      Acquire knowledge on application of various aspects of genetic engineering in medicine

PO4:      Evaluate, analyze and monitor disease states by applying relevant biochemical investigations and interpreting the clinical and laboratory data. 
PO5:      Able to integrate principles of immunology in biochemistry. 
PO6:      Demonstrate knowledge of basics of research methodology, develop a research protocol, analyse data using currently available statistical software, interpret results and disseminate these results and to have the potential ability to pursue further specializations and eventually be competent to guide students. 
B. Affective domain
PO:      Effectively explain to patients from a variety of backgrounds, the molecular and metabolic basis of disease states and lifestyle modifications. 
PO:      Communicate biochemical reasoning effectively with peers, staff and faculty, and other members of the health care team. 
PO9:      Demonstrate respect in interactions with patients, families, peers, and other healthcare professionals. 
PO10:      Demonstrate effective use of nutrition, lifestyle and genetic counseling. 
PO11:      Be aware of the cost of diagnostic tests and economic status of patients. 
PO12:      Acquire skills for self-directed learning 
C. Psychomotor domain
PO13:      Develop differential diagnoses for molecular and metabolic causes of diseases. 
PO14:      Predict effectiveness and adverse effects associated with disease intervention. 
PO15:      Perform routine investigations in hematology and microbiology and important biochemical, immunological and molecular biology techniques. 
PO16:      Observed working of important advanced techniques. 
PO17:      Demonstrate standard operating procedures of various methods and techniques used in clinical biochemistry. 
PO18:      Demonstrate presentation skills at academic meetings and publications.

    “Work as a team”, “Always strive to do better”, “Try try till you succeed”and “VASUDEV KUTUMBHKAM” have been the mottos that have been inculcated in us since day one at SMS &R. Being in campus, I have been part of variety of co-curricular activities ranging from annual fest “CHORUS” to CME programmes which have just helped me and everybody around to grow and learn for the further life. From the brilliant academic support provided to us by the faculty to the never ending lists of platforms we get to showcase our talent.

    Pursuing my postgraduate (MD) from Sharda University has been a great experience. The medical school and the hospital are both beautifully constructed and adept for providing the rigorous training that this course demands. The regularly held seminars, presentations, CMEs and conferences have led us to be exposed to the upcoming trends and new technologies in use today. We are taught not only the theoretical aspect but also encouraged for practical skill development and skill diversification here.

    I can honestly say that joining SMSR was the best decision I've ever made. Along with the excellent infrastructure, our teachers, who are also our personal mentors, have moulded us in the best possible way to be excellent doctors. Being in campus, I have also been a part of Kartavya, an NGO in the university, where we teach the underprivileged children. It has truly been an experience that has made me grow as an individual.

    SMSR did not only help me excel academically to persue my dream to become a doctor but also gave me a platform to showcase my skills and talents. We were not only blessed with an excellent and experienced faculty but also with an environment and crowd where we found our companions and friends who became family in no time. I am extremely grateful for this journey as I get out as a doctor and a confident individual ready to conquer the challenges ahead and make a difference in the society.

    The journey of a medical undergraduate is really grueling and cannot be walked alone. At SMSR I found like-minded and sincere companions who made the journey easy, and I was shepherded by excellent teachers who were my guiding lights. The path itself was peppered with numerous opportunities -both academic and extra-curricular, waiting to be seized. Countless CMEs, conventions and competitions helped me realize my talents which even I didn't even know that I possessed. All these activities along with an amazing campus made the whole experience indelible as well as incredibly rewarding for me.
