DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL SURGERY

  • Vision & Mission

    This department aims to provide proper direction, requisite training and the correct attitude to all those who have taken upon themselves the onus of tending to the sick and wounded in various types of calamities including accidents.

    Impress upon them the enormous responsibility that is consequent of the patient, rural & urban, consenting to go under one’s knife.

    It also strives to provide an intellectually stimulating environment to motivate and inspire students of surgery at all levels in their quest for knowledge and to enable them to realize their potential to the fullest extent, and serve the community with holistic approach also.

    Faculty Profile

    Department of surgery has qualified, experienced and dedicated, fulltime faculty in full strength. They all are staying in the campus and hence are available to students and patients 24/7. The faculty is engaged in teaching, research, patient care, act as "Mentors", and participate in cocurricular and extracurricular activities such as annual social gathering. Faculty has presented research of high standard at National and state level.

    Mentor System

    Surgery department is actively involved “Mentor System" implemented by the Institution.

    Each faculty looks after the overall development of TEN STUDENTS. This batch remains with the same faculty for the duration of entire course. Students are guided regarding academic, personal, social, accommodate difficulties faced by them. Students get family environment as they become part of the Mentor’s family.

    Facilities For Teaching Learning Process:

    Department of surgery has full strength of qualified faculty. Lectures are conducted on audio-visual system using power point presentations, videos, LCD projection, CCTV, text and pictorial scenarios. There is integrated, community oriented approach. Interactive sessions are regularly conducted. Students are assigned small projects to inculcate the habit of self study and research. Department of surgery has modified the curriculum which suites the needs of modern medical students. More emphasis is given on acquiring practical, preventive and community oriented knowledge. Depending on recent knowledge the syllabus is promptly modified. Student evaluation methods are based on his understanding of subject rather than only on his memory.Department has its own museum with training models and library which contains text books, reference books and journals.

    Problem Based Learning

    This is unique programme implemented in this institute. A batch of 10-12 students is assigned to a “facilitator". Text scenarios are constructed and distributed to the batch. There is a "brain storming" free association session. Students discuss the scenario and collect information on their own from library, internet, and subject experts etc,

    Advantages: Improves communication skills. Students learn to use various resources to gather knowledge apart from text books. They learn to study and to work as a team. Facilitator also learns along with students,

    Department of surgery has generated pictorial scenarios in addition to text scenarios. Students see these clinical, radiological, intra operative photographs and learn about the given case

DEPARTMENT OF PATHOLOGY

  • Overview:
    Department of Pathology in G S L Medical College, Rajahmundry was established in the year 2003 along with the inception of the College. Dr B A Rama Krishna was the first Professor and Head of the Department under whose vision and guidance the department was set up. The department is geared up to teach a batch of 150 students at any given time. This department is involved in teaching the MBBS undergraduates. Department is located in the II Floor of the main academic wing and has rooms for Pathology office, Professor & Head’s Office, separate rooms for Senior Faculty members, Staff room, Conference hall, Museum, Lecture Hall / Demo Rooms, Two (2) Practical halls, Store rooms and one Research lab. The laboratories are located in two huge well lit and well ventilated halls. Work benches are of state of art, steel topped with integrated lighting, water supply and gas supply for performing experiments. Gas is supplied through a closed pipe system connected to Gas cylinders located at a distance in a store room. The laboratory halls have a number of illustration Charts that not only help the students as ready reference and ready reckoners but also help in revision. Sufficient numbers of monocular microscopes are available for teaching. Teaching and demonstration is boosted further with the help of CCTV projector for explaining slides on a 29” TV Screen. Museum is located at one corner of the department in a separate well lit and well ventilated hall. About 450 numbers of specimens are available. The specimens are displayed in an orderly manner, System-wise. All efforts are going on to increase the number of specimens so as to have all known lesions, for the benefit of the students.

    Academic curriculum for UG teaching is as per the syllabus set by the Dr. NTR University of Health Sciences (Dr NTRUHS) and is divided into 3 semesters. It has both theory and practical aspects. The theory and practical classes and practical demos to the students are taken by teachers with Post Graduate qualifications (MD Pathology). Professor and Head always supervise the practical demos. The students are periodically assessed by three (3) Internal Examinations each one held at the end of each semester, the last one being the pre final. These internal examinations have a value in that the performance in all the three examinations are considered and the average is sent to the university as internal assessment marks out of 30, which are added to the final examination marks. At the end of the syllabus the students are expected to correlate the pathology with clinical features and perform routine investigations by themselves.

The department is committed to high quality teaching of Pharmacology to undergraduate and postgraduate students from medical, dental and paramedical specialties. The primary goals are to provide future physicians a strong foundation in pharmacological knowledge and critically evaluate the merits of new and old drugs in the future. Medical pharmacology provides a novel integrative review of broad areas of biomedical science in the context of clinical therapeutics. For the first seven years since its inception, the dept. provided only undergraduate training. In the year 2011, the Department was recognized by MCI and was permitted to carry out postgraduate course (MD) in Pharmacology. The Department is well established with high standards and well equipped laboratories and sophisticated library. The museum is well informative and enriched with system models, herbals specimens and pictorial representations. The Department also owns a Central Animal House with facilities for animal experimentation and Operation Theatre. The constituent faculties of the department work enthusiastically with immense passion for teaching by dynamically involving in several academic activities such as small group discussions, tutorials, problem based learning, quiz and seminar for undergraduate students and journal club discussion, seminars and clinical problems for post graduate students which serves beneficial to them. The students have the opportunity for a good amount of interaction with the faculty which helps them understand their subjects better. The faculty and the post graduates are involved in research activities in addition to teaching. They participated in various national and international conferences and had published papers.
