(M.D. Pre and Para Clinical - 3 Years)
The goal of post graduate education in Biochemistry is to enable a student acquire an in depth knowledge and understanding of life processes at the molecular level. He must acquire the knowledge of the applications of biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics in the practice of medicine to solve clinical problems, impart knowledge to other learners and conduct research independently.

At the end of three years training in Biochemistry the Postgraduate student shall be able to demonstrate comprehensive understanding of biochemistry as well as applied disciplines.
This will include the following broad headings.

  • Molecular motif of a living cell, the constituent bio molecules, their structure function relationship.
  • Biochemistry of human nutrition, metabolism, intermediary metabolism and disorders of metabolism.
  • Cell and molecular biology.
  • Defence against pathogens and metabolism of xenobiotics.
  • Principles of basic instrumentation and laboratory procedure and rational use of laboratory tesing.
  • Fundamentals of biostatistics.

The Post Graduate Student must

  • have acquired the competence in basic instrumentation and procedures in biochemistry as applied to hospital laboratories.
  • have the competency to plan and establish a clinical laboratory and the proficiency in laboratory management.
  • apply his knowledge in performing relevant investigations and interpreting laboratory reports to solve clinical problems.
