The department of Anesthesiology is committed to providing a multifaceted experience for the students through a systemized learning curriculum and prodigious practical sessions. We are driven passionately towards providing an exemplary knowledge-based education with a belief that the purpose of anesthesia training for medical students is not to make anesthesiologists out of all medical students, but to give students knowledge of basic concepts used in anesthesia and to teach them skills of airway management and vascular access that may be useful to them in other areas of medical practice.
We are ardent about producing a promising physician who has a good knowledge of what the anesthetic will do to the patient, even though the physician does not administer it him/herself. The student, therefore, should observe and study the physiological changes which take place in the anesthetized patient. When these changes surpass the sufficient magnitude, they become complications or produce toxic effects. The students are subjected to learn what these effects are, how they are caused, and how they may be treated. Emphasis should be laid on good preoperative preparation. Students should learn basic techniques of maintaining a clear airway and giving assisted or artificial ventilation. They should also learn how to position the patient’s head, how to hold the chin, and how to insert an airway. Medical students should also learn enough about an anesthetic machine. In addition to these technical accomplishments, the student may have the opportunity to administer either general or spinal anesthesia under the direct and constant supervision of an experienced member of the staff.
The objective of the program is that the students, at the end of their posting shall be able to:
- Introduce principles of acute medicine, as it is practiced in managing the anesthetized patient in the operating room and in managing the patient in the recovery unit.
- Discuss and demonstrate the principles of applied physiology and applied pharmacology. Simulation on Human patient Simulator (HPS) is considered ideal to teach many aspects of applied physiology and pharmacology.
- Review principles of and teach skills in resuscitation (cardiopulmonary, cerebral, fluid, and others).
- Demonstrate care of the unconscious patient, including airway and ventilation management.
- Ascertain the management of blood, fluid, electrolyte balance, and metabolic disturbances in the surgical patient, with specific emphasis on those derangements which are encountered in the anesthetized patient.
- Review the management of acute and chronic pain problems.
- Introduce concepts of drug interactions, especially as they apply to patients receiving anesthesia.
- Demonstrate the evaluation of patients relative to surgical and anesthetic risk. Teach appropriate preoperative preparation of patients subjected to surgery and anesthesia.
- Introduce the various techniques of anesthesiology.
- Pharmacology of muscle relaxant, application, and monitoring.
- Pharmacology – Basic / Applied of local anesthetics like various types of blocks advantages, problems with each type, descriptive for the same main blocks, Local infiltration, Brachial Plexus, Caudal, etc.
We train the students of our department with the crucial skills needed to excel in the basics as well as the advanced academic aspects of Anesthesiology including –
The students should be able to:
- Maintenance of Clear airway
- Bag-Mask Ventilation
- Starting A Venous Access/li>
- CPR — Basic and advanced
- Giving a simple infiltration block, some nerve block
- Performing a lumbar puncture
We also ensure that our students are extensively trained to articulate other inter-personal skills to shine in this demanding and fast-paced branch of medicine.
At the end of the course, the students are expected to demonstrate an array of key skills including –
- Ability to clearly communicate with patients and their attendants and be good people advocate.
- Having superior composure to outwit the stress posed on anesthesiologists during crucial times.
- Good physical and mental dexterity to handle multiple patients quickly and accurately.
- Pay attention to reviewing patient history and manage the dosage and other processes accordingly.
The role of a teaching faculty in Anesthesiology is considered crucial in order to help the students gain proper knowledge of this field. An anesthesiologist is someone who does all-round monitoring in any surgery, right from before the surgical process, and continues even after the patient is out of the surgical suite. Teaching in such an interactive environment can be challenging.
Hence, the department is supported by an exceptional team of faculty who use a conceptual teaching framework with a view to cultivating reasoned learning schemes which help in optimizing the educational process and also competent in dealing with the patients with care and compassion.

The progressively evolving technology in the medical field from the experimental process to standards of care, in very short intervals, has given rise to the necessity for a medical professional to keep current with medical narcotics, equipment, and procedures. Therefore, at the Apollo Medical College, we ensure that the medical students of our institution get exposed to seminars, formal programs, and CME and be able to make the best use of it for their career development,
CME / Seminars Organised
- Hands-on Regional Anesthesia & Chronic pain workshops,
The Department of Anesthesia,
The Apollo Medical College and Apollo Hospitals from 31st July to 2 Aug2015 with 6 credit hours.
