Pathology

The department of pathology remains the backbone of better medical services by establishing the cause, effect and treatment relationship in the field. It displays mastery in clinical skills related to identifying pathogens that create positive or negative consequences, their nature and the appropriate action to tackle it. Students are meticulously trained and monitored under such an investigative regime and are encouraged to participate in group discussions regarding the evolving nature of pathology. The highly experienced faculty is supported by technological aids, especially in biopsy and bloodbank operations.
