The department of Materia Medica aims at providing a sound knowledge of Homoeopathic drugs. Materia Medica is a subject which is taught from first year to final year. Our department has formulated various strategies to achieve the broad vision of our institution. To heal and comfort the suffering humanity.
The department is currently facilitated with good number of materials of academic importance. A proper knowledge of drug substances and its action are essential for every student. We offer students a well planned quality education thro efficient classroom and practical guidance.
The students are taught to study each drug synthetically, analytically and comparatively to enable the student to study each drug individually as a whole.
Conventional teaching method is adopted with variation wherever necessary. Drugs are discussed from cognitive angles with a visual reference system and charts for the objective of teaching Materia Medica at clinical levels. Students are assessed by questioners, periodical test papers, and drug picture presentation. Clinical classes are invariably patient centered and patient oriented and emphasis will be given to problem of health and disease. Here the students are encouraged to study the drugs for various clinical conditions by comparisons the therapeutic application of Materia Medica is demonstrable from cases of IP and OP wards. Bed side knowledge helps the student to interact with the patient, to analysis to solve problems to get in-depth study about the case and management.
