Concept of Teaching or Teaching philosophy:

Pathology is a study of disease, its etiology, pathogenesis and pathophysiology, and its morphologic expression at organ, tissue, cellular and ultrastructural levels. The spectrum of research interests of our faculty includes basic molecular mechanisms of cell function and vertebrate development, as well as translational studies on disease mechanism, diagnosis and treatment. Pathology is a medical speciality that provides the scientific foundation for all medical practice. The pathologist works with each of the clinical specialties, using the tools of laboratory medicine to provide information essential to problem solving in clinical practice. As such, the pathologist is the “doctors’ doctor.”

Pathology is the only discipline that can be classified as both a basic and clinical science. As such, it will provide medical students an indispensable bridge between the basic science and the clinical relevance and application of this information. Pathology provides a rich environment for graduate education in which our students can receive comprehensive training in as many areas of both the basic and clinical sciences as they relate to pathologic mechanisms.

Pathology is very vast subject and teaching time is limited. Hence, method of teaching    pathology should be easy so student can understand the subject in better way. Integrated teaching method and use of clinical radiological correlation is the better ‘option. A conceptual knowledge of pathology can be delivered by interactive lectures, small group discussion and clinical case demonstration. All histopathology slides and haematology slides should be shown to students in microscope and also photograph of lesion should be shown during lectures for better understanding. 

staff

The faculty of the department of Pathology consists of four Associate Professors (including one In-charge Head of Department), Five Assistant Professors, Five Senior Residents and One Junior Resident.

Innovation:

Department of Pathology prepared standard curriculum as per the NMC/MCI guidelines. Along with didactic lectures, Problem based learning, Case based learning, tutorials, seminars, small group discussions, “Audio-Visual” demonstrations, early clinical exposure conducted on regular basis. Self directed learning is implemented for creating life long leaner. Department conduct AETCOM and Communication skills sessions regularly for creating ethical IMG who can differentiate between behaviour of good doctor and bad doctor. Even in COVID 19 Pandemic, Department conducted all academic activities and reporting successfully.
