The MBBS Programme

The College offers a 5 year course, divided into Pre Clinical Course and a Clinical Course. The Pre Clinical Course is for 1 year and Clinical Course lasts for 4 years and includes both clinical and para clinical subjects. On successful completion of the clinical course, the student has to spend one year as a house physician, rotating through Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics and Community Medicine before obtaining his/her Graduate Degree in Medicine.

The Kerala University has given consent for affiliation and the course would be under the quality control monitoring of the Medical Council of India.

Pre clinical curriculum
This is aimed at providing the student with enough knowledge about normal structure and function of the human body and its various organs. This knowledge is provided by the Sciences of Anatomy, Physiology & Biochemistry.

Department of Bio-Chemistry   

Biochemistry is the study of normal functioning of the body at molecular level. The state of health and disease is basically a matter of biochemical status of the body. For every movement and every activity, there is a biochemical basis. Even feelings like happiness, depression, hunger, thirst, etc. are the results of biochemical reactions or variations in the levels of various molecules. Newer developments in Molecular Biology and Genetics are exciting as they provide new insights into the functioning of the human body and offer reliable ways of detecting and correcting abnormal functions. A well-equipped laboratory helps the students to learn about various biochemical reactions and understand the principles and clinical applications of various biochemical tests.

    The Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory of the hospital is under the supervision of Biochemistry Department which would help to keep pace with the advances in this field. An advanced Molecular Biology Lab is being established as part of this programme. A well stocked library and research laboratory are available for departmental research

Department of Anatomy

Human anatomy is the study of the structure of human body. In Greek, the word Anatomy means 'cutting up' because knowledge of anatomy was obtained through dissection. Gross anatomy is the structure of human body as seen by the naked eyes.

Histology is the microscopic anatomy, the study of human body at cellular level. Embryology is the study of development of human embryo into a fully developed human body.

The knowledge of the human body's gross anatomy and structure is essential to understand its functions in health and disease.

This science is learned in the dissection hall by 'cutting up' to understand the gross anatomy of the organs and their relation with other structures. The underlying microscopic structure is studied in the Histology Lab. The science of Anatomy is also learned from skeletons, specimens, models, clinical photographs and X-rays in the Anatomy Museum

Department of Physiology

Physio
 = Normal Functioning;  Ology = Knowledge of Study

Physiology deals with the multitudes of physio chemical reactions that maintain the constancy of internal environment of the body, 'The Milieu Interieor', the term that was introduced by Claude Bernard, the well known French physiologist during 19th century.

Human physiology is the study of the normal functioning of human body. It is the basis of medicine; medical students should acquire a sound knowledge of this subject without which it would not be possible to understand abnormal function in disease. On completion of the Pre Clinical Course, the student is expected to possess a comprehensive knowledge of the subject of physiology including its clinical applications.

Biophysics is the physics of the biological systems of human body. Various kinds of laboratory experiments and exercises help the students to study this complex subject. There are four laboratories in the department. In the Haematology Laboratory, the nature and function of blood components are studied; in the Amphibian and Mammalian laboratories, the functions of muscles, nerves, cardiovascular system, etc. are studied, in the Clinical Physiology Laboratory, various clinical applications are taught.     

A good department library and well equipped Research Laboratory provide facilities for research, for students and staff.
