The curriculum centers around Histopathology, Hematology, cytology along with clinical Pathology. The diagnostic wing in the hospital offers services under these categories. The undergraduate students’ theory classes and practicals are held in the college building. We have large lecture halls provided with LCD projection, overhead projector and white boards. Demonstration rooms are also provided for specimen demonstration and instruments. Practical halls are fully equipped. Further laboratory tables and microscopes are provided for the students for lessons in haematology, cytology and histopathology. The department is well equipped with necessary infrastructure especially adequate specimens for museum, slides for study, audio-visual aids and department library. All these are put to maximum use for creating an exemplary learning environment, as we patronize the concept of “Pathology in pictures”.
