Pathology is a branch of medicine that deals with the precise study and diagnosis of human disease. It bridges the clinical and non-clinical subjects making Pathology an essential member of the treatment team.
Here the students are engaged towards applying their knowledge of the mechanism of disease to diagnose, prevent and treat the patient.
The pathology teaching sessions are a mix of both theoretical and practical classes where students have an opportunity to observe and participate in the diagnosis of patients admitted in the wards. We make a pathologist out of them by engaging their knowledge to look for the cause, progress, and effects of disease on a fellow human being.
The department has four full-fledged working sections:
Microbiology, Histopathology, Hematology and Chemical Pathology.
Research, education and clinical activities are conducted in cooperation with other clinical departments.
Our educational and training programs presently include the teaching / training of undergraduate medical students and students of Allied health sciences (DPT, MLT, MIT, Nutrition, and Optometry). The department is also involved in the development of faculty through continuous medical education and hence, maintains more than 95% of pass percentage for the last 5 Years.
Our department is well equipped according to the latest medical requirements and is designed in accordance with the standards of PMDC.
Attached to the department are four clinical labs for each sub-section of Pathology, with qualified experienced and dedicated staff providing good quality facilitation of diagnostic tests to Indoor and Outdoor patients of AMTH.
The objective of Pathology department is to provide the students with basic knowledge of disease in order to understand specific diseases, causes and prevention. Our mission is to provide a stimulating learning environment that is enhanced by research procedures. In the near future, our aim is to cater Post graduation training in DCP, MCPS, M.Phil and FCPS Part II.
