Forensic medicine brings the investigative capabilities of modern medicine to the aid of law and justice. Here students will have to apply their knowledge of the various sciences to the human body.
Students are exposed to techniques and rare aspects of forensic medicine through debates and conferences.
Faculty members too are encouraged to regularly expose themselves to the international scene. Many of them have presented papers at regional and national level conferences. The professors are associated with regional and national organizations.
The research laboratory gives you access to all the resources you need for research and a highly qualified faculty who are always at hand to guide you.
Students of this science are placed in real-time scenarios in the mock court facility that the department has prepared. This familiarizes them with the court atmosphere and functioning while teaching them the art of open debate. They are also equipped to tackle any of the medico-legal cases in clinical forensic medicine as well as forensic thanatology.
