At the Department of General Surgery, we look to make our students take care of the entire patient, right from diagnosis, pre-operative, operative as well as post-operative care for the patient. We understand that a general surgeon needs to have accurate diagnostic skills as well, in addition, to be able to perform the surgery. We take care to ensure that our students have the necessary communicative and collaborative skills in addition to the subject skills to ensure a smoother experience for the patient as well as their family and other related medical help professionals.

Undergraduate students are trained to treat common illnesses at primary patient care level, helping them to grow into knowledgeable and successful primary care physicians.

At Apollo Medical College, we lay emphasis on teaching our students for primary care of the injured, care of comatose, common wounds and ulcers, resuscitation of patients with cardiac arrest, initial care of acute abdominal conditions, and other such emergencies. We also concentrate on diagnosis, workup, and proper referral of common conditions such as hernia, lumps in the breast, thyroid, piles, and fissure & fistula, abdominal lumps, renal stones, varicose veins, etc.


The main objective of any medical student to provide their patient with an accurate diagnosis and the best course of treatment. At general surgery, our students are trained to understand the situation in hand at depth, to treat both adults and children in emergency situations, and judiciously administer the right course of medical treatment. At the end of the course at General Surgery, we at Apollo Medical College, want to achieve among other aspects the following from our students.
