The Department of Oral Pathology at the Faculty of Dental Sciences is committed to excel in undergraduate and postgraduate education, and research. The undergraduate oral pathology teaching programme for BDS starts in final part I in phase III and spans over 9th to 12th terms. Oral pathology is taught incorporated into clinical training in dentistry and the main emphasis is to enable the students to gain knowledge and skills useful for the diagnosis of benign conditions of the oro-facial region, oral potentially malignant disorders, oral cancer and oral manifestations of systemic diseases.
Our aim is to be a department of academic excellence through dedicated teaching and to contribute to new knowledge through research.
