Symbiosis School of Open And Distance Learning (SSODL) has ventured into academics to address the issue of manpower crunch of the healthcare sector. Given the fiercely competitive work environment and constraints of time due to a taxing work schedule, SSODL has implemented various programmes offered through the distance education mode to both entry level aspirants as well as in service professionals for their professional upgradation.
These programmes provide professional education in a flexible academic package through specially prepared modules by subject experts, keeping in mind the distance education methodology and suited to the learner's pace & place.
