HOD Medicine

Medicine is the “Science of Healing”. It is the practice of the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, and the promotion of health. Teaching of the subject of medicine begins with the integration of the basic sciences in 1st and 2nd years. These topics are as important as topics of the final year. They are taught early because they are better understood when the anatomy and physiology and biochemistry of the body are being learnt. Emphasis is given to hands on learning in the emergency room, wards and OPD, observation of procedures such as GI endoscopies, bronchoscopes, ETT, echocardiogram, coronary angiogram, dialysis sessions, mechanical ventilation, lumbar punctures, pleural and peritoneal aspiration and on biopsy of various organs.
