Generic outcome

To make the students understand the scientific basis of the life processs at the molecular level and to orient them towards the application of the knowledge acquired in solving clinical problems.

Program Specific Outcome

1. Demonstrate understanding of

a. Biochemical and molecular process involved in health and disease

b. Importance of nutrition and health and disease

c. Basis and rationale of biochemistry laboratory tests.

2. Demonstrate the ability to interpret the laboratory investigation results in clinical context.

PG – (M.D) Department of Bio-Chemistry

At the end of the MD training programme in Biochemistry, the post graduate student should be able to

1. Explain clearly concepts and principles of biochemistry and cell biology, including correlations of these with cellular and molecular processes involved in health and disease.

2. Develop skills as a self-directed learner, recognize continuing educational needs; use appropriate learning resources and critically analyze relevant published literature in order to practice evidence based biochemistry.

3. Demonstrate competence in basic concepts of research methodology and epidemiology.

4. Effectively teach biochemistry to undergraduate students in medicine and allied health science courses to make them competent health care professionals.

5. Set up/supervise /manage a diagnostic laboratory in Biochemistry in a hospital,ensuring quality and reliable diagnostic service.

6. Develop the desired managerial and leadership skills and function as a productive member of a team engaged in health care, research and education.

7. Provide clinicians with consultation services for diagnostic tests in biochemistry and in interpretation of laboratory results.

8. Demonstrate skills in documentation of reports.

9. Conduct Clinical and Molecular research which has an impact on the patient health care and treatment modalities.

10. Carry out a research project from planning to publication and be able to pursue academic interests and continue life-long learning to become more experienced in all the above areas and to eventually be able to guide postgraduates in their thesis work.
