Message from HOD

Pathology services and academic learning are positioned in the centre of the clinical practice and curriculum directing the modalities of treatment and prognosis with precise and prognostic reports, and in the curriculum reinforcing the basic learning of body functions, anatomy and correlating with the disease process, helping the student to unravel the mysteries of the pathogenesis of disorders before venturing into the core of clinical subjects. Hence the accountability for producing a good medical graduate, and a good practitioner, both rest heavily with the pathologist.
