Pathology is the branch of medicine that studies the causes and effects of diseases. It also deals with the laboratory examination of tissue samples in order to diagnose a disease or identify the cause of tissue injury. Experienced professors and research scholars provide undergraduate students with a thorough knowledge of the pathology of the human body. The department has well-equipped and fully functional labs for studies of the tissue specimens and research studies, which create a congenial learning environment for undergraduate students.
