Department of Community Medicine
Department is involved in community based medical education to students, involving comprehensive health care to the community and health research activities. Department is equipped with museum with latest and informative models, specimen and charts. It has separate research laboratory and library. Department runs two health and training centers, one is in urban area and another is in rural area. Comprehensive health care to the community and teaching and training to the students are given through the Health centers as well.
Department of Forensic Medicine
Forensic medicine is an important subject in the second year of MBBS course. We teach medical ethics, professional negligence, forensic pathology, forensic traumatology, sexual jurisprudence, forensic psychiatry and medical toxicology. We train the students in a practical manner to handle any medico legal situation in their future career. Forensic Medicine & Toxicology is a field in medical sciences which deals with the issues related unnatural and natural events occurring in a human being. Forensic Medicine blends all the specialties in modern medicine .The role of forensic medicine has become more relevant in present day than before because of awareness among the masses about the medical law and advent of newer mass media which is enlightening about the law and medicine. The department is involved in teaching, research, training, medico legal autopsy, clinical forensic medicine and other medico legal works.
Forensics is eloquence and reduction.
Department of Microbiology
Microorganisms thrive in every corner of the world, from Antarctic ice (<0 degrees C) to deep-sea thermal vents (>100 degrees C); from the gastrointestinal tracts and skin of animals to the root nodules of leguminous plants; from sewage treatment plants to pristine lakes and streams. To study microbiology is to pursue the breadth of biology, as microorganisms provide experimental material for understanding physiology; cell structure and function; biochemistry; molecular biology; photosynthesis; ecology; evolution; genetics; development; and even simple behavioral responses and "memory". Our course offerings allow students to gain an Introduction to the field of Microbiology and to explore many of the more specific areas described above. Microbiology is a concentration within the Biological Sciences program. The Microbiology concentration is small enough to ensure the size of our advanced classes allows for an active learning environment with significant interaction between students and faculty. The concentration is large enough though to make it easy to connect with other undergraduates who share an interest in a particular aspect of Microbiology.
In microbiology the role of mutation and selection in evolution are coming to be better understood through the use of bacterial culture of mutant strains.
Department of Pathology
The Department of Pathology at FH MEDICAL COLLEGE is preeminent nationally and globally in the study and treatment of human disease and in professional training in all areas of pathology and laboratory science. The Department aims to shape the future of pathology as it will be practiced in community hospitals, academic medical centers and clinical laboratories throughout the country. Pathologists practicing in hospital and clinical laboratories have access to knowledge gained from the examination and treatment of large numbers of patients. As consultant physicians, they apply this knowledge to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of individual patients. As medical scientists, they make contributions that advance the understanding of disease. As teachers, they impart this knowledge of disease to their medical colleagues, to house staff and to students. The Department of Pathology is dedicated to training physicians to be outstanding teachers, researchers, diagnosticians and managers in the field of laboratory medicine.
Certainty is usually a sign of pathology.
Department of Pharmacology
The Pharmacology department has a proven track record of producing academic and industrial leaders in biomedical research throughout the country and world. Our gifted faculty is engaged in cutting-edge research spanning many areas including:
- Chemical biology
With respect to our graduate programs, our goal is not only to train students to become accomplished scientists in a specific area of research but also to become independent, creative, and productive thinkers. Accomplishing this goal has enabled our graduates to move on to rewarding and successful careers in academia, the pharmaceutical industry, and government. We are very excited about recent developments in pharmacology that allow new and challenging means of exploring the biological effects of drugs.
