 A profile

     The M.R Medical College’s department of Biochemistry was established in 1963 under the dynamic leadership of Professor & Head Dr.S.V.V. Rao.  In recent years a new face lift has been given to Biochemistry lecture hall making it fully air conditioned with state of art audio visual aids and acoustics. The departmental library is one best library with collections of 390 books with recent editions and has subscription of 10 National/International journals.

     The clinical biochemistry dept at Basaveshwara Teaching and General Hospital has been upgraded with state of art equipments like Biolis 50-i (fully automated biochemistry analyzers), Roche C-111(Fully automated Bio-chemistry analyzer), Centaur CP (SEIMENS, fully automated Immunoassay analyzer), Nova Biomed (Blood gas analyzer), Electrolyte analyzers, Semi auto analyzers    etc.

 It can be proudly stated that several members of the department hold or have held   responsible positions in administrations.


     During these long years the department has grown and diversified extensively both in teaching and research. The department has successively hosted CME’s, published 23 original research articles in reputed national and international journals. The research work is supported by major research grants to faculties from various National agencies.


The department has requisite talent and potential to achieve still greater heights   and faith and tenacity to contribute in changing the living environment for better. 


Goals: The Department of Biochemistry will promote higher values in education, health care dealing & research the faculty will strive hard keeping the society in mind to meet excellence in all areas will not compromising ethics and professionalism.  




MBBS: The board goal of teaching of under graduate students in Biochemistry is to make them understand the scientific basics of the life process at the molecular level and to orient them towards the application of the knowledge acquired in solving clinical problems.

MD BIOCHEMISTRY:  The goal of MD course in Biochemistry is to produce a competent medical biochemist who is able to

DEPARTMENT LIBRARY: - Has excellent resources for reference and study with a collection of 390 books with recent editions & have subscription of 11 National/ International Journals 

CLINICAL BIOCHEMISTRY LABORATORY: A Modern 1500 Sq.ft Clinical Biochemistry with automated analyzer functions round the clock. The Sample collection centre located at ground floor of the Hospital near the USG room. In addition Samples are received from various in patient wards. On an average more than 300 samples are processed every day and more than 1800tests are performed every day.

The department offers all routine biochemical investigations as well as Special tests required for the diagnosis and treatment of the patients of Basaweshwar Teaching and General Hospital.
