First time in India BSS is organizing a 2 year Diploma course in the field of, pathology technicians dealing with preparation of microscopic study of tissues and mounting of anatomy specimens when so far, it has never been done. The people who never had any formal training are realizing the importance of preservation of data, 3D printing specimens and so on. We aim to create an employment eco-system in the village areas so people can take up dignified jobs whilst also serving the society for a greater good.”

This is the first attempt in educating our students from the villages under the Ministry of Skill Development.

When Dr Cherian approached us for new courses on Anatomy & Embalming Technicians and diploma courses for Autopsy and curator, I was very happy.
