Amrita health Science
Research

Clinical research has been held sacrosanct in the ethos of Amrita Institute’s development over the years with prolific output by way of research papers, publications, research conclaves and workshops, and patents being seen as key drivers to the high ranking of Amrita University and Amrita hospital in the NIRF and other ratings. A full-fledged research unit oversees all research activities in the institute.
Research is embedded in the routine activities that involve clinical care and education, through focussed research, community programs, outreach and collaborative projects, thesis and dissertations across the medical spectra including medical post-graduate (MD, MS), post-doctoral (DM, MCh), PharmD, MSc Nursing, and PhD courses. Each undergraduate and postgraduate, cutting across different courses, is mandated a short-course in research methodology and statistics in the first month of entry to the Institute. GCP (Good Clinical Practice) and Research workshops are held twice every year, which is also open to external attendees.
