The Department of Pathology takes utmost care to provide diagnostic services to patients and conduct educational activities for professionals in order to update their knowledge and skills.
Goals and Objectives
- To provide a broad based teaching programme encompassing the areas of anatomic, clinical, experimental as well as community based knowledge in pathology at all levels.
- To give appropriate training to the team and encourage them to participate in various continuing medical education programmes, thereby developing interpersonal and communication skills resulting in effective information exchange amongst the team of learners and facilitators.
- To understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms of diseases and applying this knowledge to medical practice to keep us up to date with the latest and current developments.
- To provide efficient and effective health services that promote the health and well-being of the people.
- To provide excellent diagnostic and laboratory services to the patients.
- Histopathology, Cytopathology, Haematology, Immunopathology, Transfusion medicine and Immunohistochemistry.
- Intra-operative consultation services and diagnosis of surgical specimens and cytological preparations to other clinical departments
The excellence of the offered diagnostic services is ensured by the usage of high standards of laboratory quality control.
Automated 5 part haematology analyser, Fully automated histokinete, Semi-automated microtomes, Semi-automated cryostat and Multiple epitope retrieval system for immunohistochemical studies.
Message from HOD
The Department of Pathology holds a pivotal position in the course of medical study for the undergraduates, as well as in the decision making flow chart for the clinical departments.
Academically, the students are firmly directed and anchored towards and in the clinical scenario where they study the various pathological manifestations of diseases, with a basic understanding of the pathogenesis. In order to facilitate this understanding of the disease process, the subject is divided into General Pathology, which deals with the basic pathological processes and systemic pathology, which deals with the diseases in various organs. The clinical responsibility of the pathologist is often underestimated and ill understood. The key role in diagnosis and research, the role of various parameters in prognostic implication and monitoring, and finally the answer to the failure of outcome in Autopsy studies, all of these come under the purview of the pathologists.
