Vision Mission

The department of Biochemistry has a structured core team of experienced and talented faculty members.

It is involved in Undergraduate and Post graduate teaching for medical students.
Interdisciplinary research and learning programs help to maintain the efficacy and relevance of the topics taught.
To provide diagnostic laboratory services to the patients to ensure effective management of the illness.

  • To be a globally acclaimed department, recognized for excellence in medical education, scientific research and patient care.
  • To create a new genre of doctors trained to highest levels of competence, committed to excellence, guided by professional ethics, ready to serve and lead the world tomorrow.

Goals


  • To promote higher values in education, health care delivery and research.
  • Broad based knowledge in concepts and principles of Biochemistry.
  • To develop strategies and interventional approaches in Biochemistry to aid in problem solving.
  • Acquire knowledge of the basics and the applied aspects of various areas of Biochemistry.
  • Acquire interpersonal and communication skills to interact with colleagues, physicians, patients and their relatives.

ACADEMICS:

  • Department encourages under-graduate (MBBS/BDS) /post graduate (MD/ M.Sc) & PhD students to participate and present papers in conferences.
  • Well documented library with 142 text/reference books and journals to help post graduate students in seminar presentations and progress of research work.
  • Doctoral candidates are trained as a part of course work in research methodology and by biostatistics and encourages them for high quality research and other scholarly activities.
  • Discuss the application of biochemistry research results in environmental and ethical contexts and its medical applications through effective delivery of high-quality content by qualified faculty members.
  • Students are well trained about the principles of Medical Bioethics and intellectual property rights.
  • Students are trained to be global professionals as to demonstrate the highest quality of technical and clinical competence in serving their patients.

Clinical Focus

Laboratory

It is well-equipped with instruments to carry out various biochemical assays. Besides, there is a centralized instrumentation centre with complete array of automatic instruments.

Broad Area of Work

The biochemistry section in the Central laboratory services is segregated as

  • Clinical Biochemistry
  • Endocrinology

It caters to the routine as well as specialized diagnostic tests for the OPD and IPD patients of Santosh Hospital. We serve as a referral laboratory for surrounding local areas also. Post graduate students collect and document the patient data for their thesis and research projects. There are well defined training programmes for the Interns and students of laboratory technicians.

Thrust areas:

  • Laboratory Accreditation
  • Proficiency Testing
  • Training Service

The laboratory incorporates Internal Quality Control (IQC) practice while patients’ samples are analysed and participate in External Quality Assessment Schemes (EQAS).
There is provision of understanding of the clinical trials, Good clinical practices regulations and pharmacovigilance.
