The Department of Forensic Medicine has two medico legal experts providing training to 50 M.B.B.S graduates per year. Forensic Medicine as subject has gained a lot of importance in recent times with more and more people opting for post graduation in this subject . With inclusion of this subject at par with other para clinical and clinical sciences the M.C.I has made its importance abundantly clear as a undergraduate paraclinical subject. With specialization of subject into many important offshoots like clinical forensic medicine it also touches the realms of clinical teaching.

Academic Activities

The teaching of under graduate M.B.B.S students is made by variety of innovative means like power point projections; slides projection etc. With the gracious efforts of our present director/principal a high tech projection cum interactive touch screen computerized system of teaching has been set up that has made the teacher – student interaction more fruitful.
