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. Each specimen has a description card which will give the information about the specimen.
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.
In addition to routine class rooms teaching, the department also conducts pathology quizzes, student seminars and system-wise problem based tutorials periodically for closer interaction with the students and also to train them in public speaking.
