Our vision is to make the department a centre of excellence for the reproductive health needs of the women, train the generation next and be involved in research programmes.
The department aims to impart comprehensive knowledge and training in the science and art of obstetrics and gynecology to undergraduates and postgraduates( dnb) and inculcate in them the quest for knowledge and skill, a strong desire to strive for excellence and a deep concern for the cause of women's health.

The academic exposure to obstetrics & gynaecology begins early on in the third term itself, when undergraduate students are posted in clinics for a month's duration by rotation in batches of 25 students each. This is followed by theory classes from fourth term onwards. Each clinical posting is followed at the end by a ward leaving to evaluate the learning process. Didactic lectures and periodic assessment scheme are followed. We endeavour to provide excellent teaching and training in the field of obstetrics & gynaecology to the undergraduate students with the help of multimedia applications such as models, charts, doll & dummy, lecture slides, assessment materials and other learning resources.
The department is actively pursuing clinical research in the form of dissertations by dnb students and departmental projects under individual faculty. To keep abreast with new knowledge, the department holds weekly journal club, clinical meeting and staff lecture.
Seven batches of students have passed the college thus far and we have to our credit four distinctions in obstetrics and gynaecology with the 2016 batch.
Every year we train 100 undergraduates, 3 postgraduates (dnb). We conduct 250 clinics, 180 lectures, 50 tutorials and other educational activities for the under-graduate and post-graduate students.The department has aptly geared up its teaching activities by engineering e-resources during the covid time which is proudly reflected in the university results of our students.
Interns at base hospital are posted in batches in obstetrics and gynaecology by rotation for a period of two months. The clinical material at base hospital provides ample exposure to both interns as well as undergraduate students. They are offered clinical postings in labour room, wards and the outpatient departments. We have three opd days, two ot days and a procedure day per week in addition to a polyclinic opd that runs all six days a week.
