The department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at ACMS is eight years old and has grown from strength to strength under the able leadership of faculty and with enormous dedication of students.
We have two Professors, one Associate Professor, four Assistant Professors and two Senior Residents and four junior residents at present who take care of theory classes as well as clinics. The well built lecture theatres are equipped with state of art audio visual systems. The specialty at ACMS boasts of a well stocked departmental library and a museum with a rich and ever increasing collection of specimens for the enrichment of students. We also have an illustrative office premises with well furnished chambers for faculty. We also have a well equipped conference hall at Base Hospital for clinical teaching.
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.
The department is actively pursuing clinical research in the form of dissertations by DNB students and departmental projects under individual faculty. In addition Projects under Medical Education are also underway in the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Three batches of students have passed the college thus far and we have to our credit five distinctions in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with the 2010 batch. With clinical excellence and dedication in teaching.
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. The students are exposed to procedures like normal and operative deliveries, gynaecologic surgeries, ultrasound, Pap’s smear, endometrial biopsy, colposcopy, endoscopy etc. in addition to basic inpatient and outpatient care.
With super specialty services such as fetal medicine and gynae oncology at Base Hospital, the college has a plethora of clinical material that covers the entire spectrum of our branch. In addition we have simulators for more hands on practical exposure.
