AIIMS Pathology Syllabus

AIIMS Pathology Syllabus – Part II

 

TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODOLOGY

Department stresses on teaching basic fundamentals of the disease process and the applied aspects relevant to the clinical subjects.

General Pathology

Taught with the help of Didactic lectures on specific topics, followed by Practicals pertaining to that topic. Besides microscopic examination, fresh specimens obtained at autopsy or surgical operations are shown.

Systemic Pathology

The following tools are employed:

d)       Didactic lectures: discussing a particular topic at length in an one hour lecture

ii)       Paraclinical seminars: are conducted by a combined team of pathologist and a clinician who discuss the pathophysiology and clinical aspects of the particular disease entity.

iii)      Case studies: The significant and common diseases are discussed in the form of a representative clinical case in which the clinical features, the course of the disease in that particular patient and relevant laboratory investigations are discussed by a clinical faculty in an interactive manner in small groups. This is followed by demonstration of the gross and microscopic features of the disease in that case by the pathologist. This is followed by clinico-pathologic correlation.

iv)     Practicals

Deals with demonstration of gross, and/or microscopic features of the disease entities.

v)       Clinical case demonstration

Patients of a particular disease are demonstrated to the students by a clinical faculty in the ward, discussing the clinical features in the patient which provides them a real-life experience of studying a disease as it presents in a patient.

By a combination of above modalities/tools, student learns applied aspects of the disease process.
