Microbiology is an essential part of Medical Sciences and aims to provide understanding of the natural history of infectious diseases in order to deal with the etiology, pathogenicity, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of these  infectious diseases.

The Department of Microbiology in ACMS is situated on the 2nd floor of the Academic block.  We have a state of the art museum and fully equipped Students Practical laboratory including a Trinocular microscope with CCTV and central gas supply.

Students study Microbiology in the II MBBS and spend a period of one and half year in the department, during which able faculty members ensure to impart not just knowledge to the students but also enhance certain skills to bring about an attitudinal change in the students to help them to become better clinicians.

Our aim of teaching Microbiology is that the student should not just do well in the examinations but also to give him a sound knowledge of the subject, so as to help him to excel in the clinical field. To achieve this end, we strive to make the lectures interactive, interesting and clinically oriented.

Students are also encouraged to regularly take part in Seminars and Quiz conducted by the department.  Projects are allotted to the students for better understanding of the subject and to encourage productive interaction amongst them. Efforts are made by the department to undertake integrated teaching for vital topics to ensure that the student acquires a wholesome concept for the topic concerned.

Lot of stress is given on the practical/ hands on training of the students. The pass percentage and the distinctions obtained by our students have made us proud.
