The Department of Oral Pathology has full-fledged, teaching staff for under-graduate and post-graduate teaching. The Department is presently running under able guidance of Prof. & HeadDr. Madhusudan Astekar, MDS, Ph.D.The department is currently involved in teaching 100 under graduate students each at I, II and III year and two post-graduates each per year. The undergraduate course was started in the year 2002 and was recognized in 2007. The post-graduate course was started in the year 2009 and was recognized by the year 2012. Since then several qualified post-graduatebatches have graduated from the department till date.
The Department has a Hematology, Histo&Cyto-pathology and Microbiology laboratory with all research facilities for postgraduates. Histopathology reporting of oral tissue biopsy and radical neck dissection specimens along with exfoliative cytology and microbial culture (aerobic and anaerobic) are also carried out in the department. The department has been constantly upgrading the equipment’s and is currently equipped with a trinocular research microscope with 5 megapixelcamera attachment, Pentahead Multiview microscope with Image analysis & morphometry setup (MoticTM), Stereo zoom microscope with 3 megapixel camera attachment, binocular compound microscopes, calorimeter, waterbath, thermostat, digital incubators, microtome, waxbath, laminar flow, digital colony counter, microbiology culture plates and anaerobic culture jar.
The Department has research and development unit to keep in pace with changes and advancement in the field of oral sciences. Staff and postgraduates have taken up various research projects with more than 100 publications to their credits. The Department has its own library with over more than 60 textbooks including atlas and variousinternational and national research journals.
The department has a demonstration hall with a seating capacity of 100 students and a seminar hall with seating capacity of 15 persons, both equipped with mounted LCD projector. Amuseum for demonstration of specimens and various educative models is also available. The faculties regularly conduct lectures, journal clubs, seminars, slide discussions, case presentations & demonstrations for postgraduate students.
To make the teaching and training programme effective so as to develop independent capabilities in a student, to learn and apply the knowledge of Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology in identifying the problems and diagnosis so as to conduct research with sound scientific knowledge and skills.
To train a graduate dental surgeon so as to ensure higher competence in both general and special pathology dealing with the nature of oral diseases, their causes, processes and effects
To inculcate in-depth thirst for learning and develop confidence among students.
To extend Self-directedness in learning and the ability to sustain lifelong learning.
To inculcate sense of responsibility and accountability and put in hard and sincere work to excel.
Developing ability to communicate ideas clearly and structure arguments convincingly.
To be facilitators and guides rather than simple teachers.
Developing the faculties for understanding, applying and creating knowledge, as well as their ability to constantly refresh and upgrade their knowledge.
Application/adaptation of knowledge to problem solving and making of informed judgments.
