Department Overview

 

 

DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW

The department of Clinical Sciences is structured to include the Pre-Clinical Division which has four disciplines (pathology, microbiology, pharmacology, and immunology), and the Clinical Division which covers Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics and Obstetrics & Gynecology. The faculty is made up of full time, part-time, and adjunct clinical faculty members from different hospitals

 

Medical education and clinical training

 The College follows a highly integrated problem based and student-centered learning curriculum (PBL system). Students are exposed to clinical scenarios from the very first week in year 1. In the PBL system of teaching, there is a continuous integration of basic science and clinical science knowledge. The department overlooks clinical training in the clinical phase of year 4 and 5 and it gives much more emphasis on applied bedside clinical and hands-on teaching rather than theoretical learning or lectures. 

 

Research

All faculty members are actively involved in various clinical and translational research activities within their respective field of interest. They regularly publish the research projects in reputed medical journals and present in national and international medical meetings. Many faculty members are invited by other institutes to deliver guest lectures, as examiners and to conduct clinical skills workshops. 

 

Community services 

All efforts are made to educate and improve the health-care services and awareness in our community. Most of the faculty members of the department are involved in providing consultancy in clinical medicine, diagnostic microbiology & infectious diseases and clinical pathology services to the Ministry of Health hospitals and University hospital. Faculty members are also regularly invited to deliver public lectures on various health related issues locally and internationally, and they actively participate in world health days activities.
