The Department of Pathology


The Department of Pathology started way back at the inception of JIPMER. It was headed by stalwarts like Dr. DJ Reddy, Dr. AL Arora, Dr. AJ Veliath, Dr. Kamala Chandra and Dr. Malati Madhavan. Over the years it has developed into a multidisciplinary department with a well-developed undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. The department has played a major role in the patient care by providing the essential in-patient and out-patient laboratory services including 24-hour emergency services.
