Pathology is the scientific understanding of the genesis of the disease and its structural changes. The ultimate aim is to give a final diagnosis which will lead to proper treatment and care. Here at SIMS we have full fledged & well equipped pathology department, providing both diagnostic & teaching facilities. The dept offers both undergraduate and post graduate studies. There are state of the art lecture theaters with capacity for 150-200 students. We have museum displaying more than 250 specimens and practical & research laboratories for U.G. & P.G. students.


The teaching program consists of didactic lectures, supported by clinical training. These are further supplemented by modern teaching methods like Problem-Based Learning or PBL, where the students are encouraged to think for themselves and find solutions.

For M.B.B.S. students, pathology is taught during the third, fourth and fifth semesters for a total period of 18 months. Students are evaluated internally, twice a semester. The program involves some of the best professors and has the backing of good facilities to experiment in.
