Pathology Department


Pathology is the backbone of any good teaching hospital and fortunately, we have a strong backbone in the form highly competent & dedicated staff looking after fully automated and computerized Pathology department.


Past Splendour

 In the past, department has been steered by stalwarts like Dr.P.N.Bawa, Dr.G.B.Singh and Dr.B.R.Prabhakar. 

 In 1973, Dr.B.D.Sabharwal took over the reins of the department and it was under his stewardship that the department got its Postgraduate status with intake of its first batch of P.G. students.

Dr.V.Malhotra took over as head in 1997 and the MCI recognition of the postgraduate course was obtained in 1997.

To her credit is the setting up of fully developed and standardized Cytopathology, Immunopathology and Immunohistochemistry labs.

Dr NeenaSood became the head in 2013 and led the department to further automation advancements including

automatic staining and processing units in histopathology, flowcytometry in immunohematology and automatic immunohistochemistry


Present Glory
