  • Teach requisite knowledge to the under graduate medical students.
  • To teach laboratory skills to other medical / paramedical team members.
  • To carry out routine investigations, internal quality control measures and data analysis in Clinical Biochemistry Lab
  • To do case presentations on regular diseases and work-up of rare laboratory findings
  • To inculcate the principles of research methodology, so as to enable the resident to write scientific paper for thesis, publication in reputed journals and presentation in national and international conferences.

Teaching program

Academics are of paramount importance in our postgraduate residency program. Acquisition of practical competencies being the keystone of postgraduate medical education, postgraduate training is skill-oriented. Learning in postgraduate program is essentially self-directed and primarily emanating from clinical and academic work. The formal sessions are merely meant to supplement this core effort.

Teaching methods

  • Seminar
  • Journal Club
  • Case discussion
  • Theory and practical discussion
  • Internal & external quality control – group discussion
  • Peripheral posting in clinical departments

Research

The Department of Biochemistry facilitates the learning of the UG and PG students by involving them in more of research activities. UG students were encouraged to participate in ICMR-STS projects and made them to learn the basics of research. PG students learn advanced techniques by involving themselves in molecular level research activities.

Central Research Laboratory is equipped with instruments to carry out research on Genomics and Proteomics.

Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory has facilities to conduct research activities in Endocrinology, Immunology and Clinical chemistry.

Faculties of department of Biochemistry have various projects in Molecular Biology, chronic diseases, autoimmune diseases & Endocrinology.
