Pathology




Vision: Department of Pathology helps the medical field by educating the medical students to       understand the etiopathogenesis of the disease. As pathology links basic sciences with clinical manifestations and plays an important role in the diagnosis, management and prognosis. Therefore, all the up dated laboratory medicine facilities will be provided with special attention to excel in development of all the sub specialties like Histopathology, Cytopathology, Hematopathology, Immunopathology, oncopathology and autopsy pathology.

Mission statement: The objectives of our department are to provide quality medical education and to refine undergraduate/postgraduate medical students to meet the country’s need for highly qualified doctors and medical teachers. We aim to serve patient needs by setting diagnostic facilities with the advanced technologies to improve the area of laboratory medicine. Our mission is to establish a center of excellence in faculty and technician training, diagnosis and research.
