DEPARTMENT OF MICROBIOLOGY

  • The Department of Microbiology is involved in teaching and imparting the Knowledge to the students there by enabling them in treating the patients with tender love and care.
  • As the famous saying goes “It is not the microbes live among the human population but we humans live among the microbes” the microbe population outnumbers human population.
  • For normal physiological functions of our human body with 30 trillion cells we need the help of microbes which resides within as well as in our environment.
  • By teaching the importance of microbiology to the medical / Paramedical undergraduates & Postgraduates students, Department of Microbiology helps them to achieve a holistic approach in treating the diseases.

Vision

Our vision is to be an epitome provider of evidence based and holistic medical education which will be delivered to the desperate at the right time in the right place by the right person and also to establish an innovative, advanced and affordable laboratory diagnostics service to serve the common man under one umbrella.

 

Mission

“Our mission is to bring compassionate, accessible, high quality, cost effective laboratory services of International standards within the reach of every individual. We are committed to the achievement and maintenance of excellence in education, research and healthcare for the benefit of humanity”.

Under Graduate

  • Understand the role of microbes in health and disease.
  • Understand the immunological basis in prevention and control of disease.
  • Ability to correlate the natural history, mechanisms and clinical manifestations of infectious diseases.
  • Knowledge of the principles and the application of infection control measures.
  • An understanding of the basis of choice of laboratory diagnostic tests and their interpretation.

Post Graduate

A post graduate student upon successfully qualifying in MD (Microbiology) examination should be able to

  • To create a competent and an efficient clinical microbiologist.
  • Interact effectively with the allied departments by rendering services in basic as well as advanced laboratory investigations.
  • Demonstrate application of microbiology in a variety of clinical settings to solve diagnostic and therapeutic problems along with preventive measures.
