This department deals with teaching and high quality training in diagnostics and medical analysis techniques. The emergence of the threat of biological weapons and also the emergence of new infectious diseases and modifications in the receptors of microbes like viruses, prions, bacteria, fungi etc., are challenging clinical experts to develop more robust diagnostic techniques. There is a dire need for capable experts, such as medical lab technicians and medical microbiologists to contribute to the scientific diagnosis and management of diseases.
In our endeavour to create a pool of highly trained professionals in this domain, we have established state-of-the-art laboratory facilities that include biochemical, electrolyte and hematological analyzers, ELISA readers, spectrophotometer & digital colorimeters, electrophoresis units, binocular & projection microscopes, microtome and automatic tissue processors, enzyme and hormonal assaying analyzers etc. The innovative use of molecular tools and automated software-based facilities are the key features of the programme.
Our expertise extends to the fields of haematology, immunology, clinical pathology, biochemical and molecular diagnosis, histopathology & cytology, blood-banking technology, genetic error analysis, molecular pathology, biochemistry & microbiology, serology etc. The department has highly qualified and experienced medical and paramedical faculty members. Career opportunities include viable prospects in various diagnostic laboratories, hospitals, health institutions of repute.
B.Sc. in Medical Microbiology is a 3 years course with 6 months internship.
Passed 10+2 examination with physics/chemistry/mathematics or biology. Candidates need to obtain at least 45% marks in the above subjects taken together.
