I am feeling pleasure to present the department of pathology Sindh Medical College for the Website of Jinnah Sindh Medical University. Pathology is a bridge between basic and clinical subjects and comprising of more than 6 sub-specialties which are dealt according to the level of semester and module. Pathology department is one of the largest departments of Sindh medical College. It has one of the most dynamic and energetic teaching faculty, most of them are pursuing PhD programs & fellowship not only to upgrade their qualifications but to improve the standards and quality of education at undergraduate level. We are not only involved in the routine academic activities that commence as early as in semester I and continues till the end of semester VIII of MBBS.
Pathology Department has a dedicated teaching faculty of twenty person including three Professors, five Associate Professors, four Assistant Professors and nine Lecturers.
We at JSMU follow the integrated modular system of medical education. This curriculum is latest and adopted in leading medical schools around the world. It is approved by Pakistan Medical & Dental Council. This newer system helps the student of gathering the necessary important and pertinent data and basic medical subject knowledge supplemented by clinical information.
Pathology department has separate faculty offices with WiFi & LAN internet facilities. This facilitates the faculty in using the latest research material while gathering and making the teaching material. Every effort and resource is used for improving the teaching methodology and maintaining the international standards. Main lecture hall of Pathology Department is renovated recently by generous contribution of SMC alumni. It is centrally air-conditioned and equipped with state of the art multimedia projection system and Audio Visual System. It can accommodate more than 350 students.
We have three large laboratory demonstration rooms comprising of Histopathology, Microbiology and Clinical Pathology. A seminar room adjacent to museum to cater the needs of tutorials, clinical based learning (CBL), scenario based learning (SBL) and quiz sessions. All labs are equipped with multimedia, internet facility, Nikon binocular microscopes, Multi-head microscopes, glass slide projector and Audio-visual linked to CCTV microscope system. Museum is the heart of pathology department which houses hundreds of rare specimens that are used to teach and demonstrate gross pathology to our students. Learning Resource Center (LRC) is focused on student needs to follow pathological gross lesions in museum specimen, aided by microscope slides and supporting relevant atlas & text book in departmental library. The supporting staff is trained to make necessary arrangements for these sessions smoothly. On behalf of Pathology Department I would like to express our desire to help improve the standards of this new university and strive to make it center of excellence in the future.
