The Department of Medicine is one of the most important departments in any hospital, as medical problems can occur in patients admitted under any specialty and have to be managed as quickly as possible.

Two DNB students are registered for post-graduate training every year. We have completed eight years of such training.

DNB training includes daily teaching rounds, case presentations, journal clubs, Wednesday Grand Rounds, regular symposia on various specialties. The GURUMED teaching programme for post-graduate students is the brain-child of the late Dr. K G Nair and we are continuing this quarterly activity. Students from all over Maharashtra visit our hospital for a weekend of post-graduate training and preparation for their post-graduate theory and practical exams. Faculty members are invited from all over the city as well as doctors from the department and various super-specialties from our hospital. Our excellent audio-visual and conference hall infrastructure ensures the success of this unique teaching programme.

Our students are also encouraged to pursue research activities in addition to their routine academic and clinical activities.
