Rural dermatological problems are bit different from urban areas. This department caters three different services (dermatology, venereology, leprology) under one umbrella. The faculty members not only conduct patient care services but also initiate preventive programs. We have a very good OPD and ward with facilities for isolating infective patients. We have an excellent side lab, well-trained technician, so that we do all the side lab procedures in dermatology, leprosy, venereology.
We have adequate OP (more than 100 patients/ day) and IP strength (average 15- 20 patients) by which UGs and other department PGs are benefitted.
