DEPARTMENT OF OBSTETRICS & GYNECOLOGY

DEPARTMENT OF OBSTETRICS & GYNECOLOGYA course of systematic instructions in the principles and practice of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infant Hygiene. Homoeopathy adopts the same attitude towards these subjects as it does towards medicine and surgery. But while dealing with obstetrical and gynecological cases, a Homoeopathic physician must be trained in special clinical methods or investigation for diagnosing local conditions and discriminating cases, there surgical intervention either as a life saving measure for removing mechanical obstacles is necessary.
The best time to eradicate familial dyscrasias in a woman or to purify the foetus of such dyscrasias which it may inherit during pregnancy is possible and this should be specially stressed.

Students should also be instructed in the case of new born. The fact that the mother and child form a single biological unit and that this peculiar close psychological relationship persists for at least the first two years of the child’s life should be particularly emphasized.

The department is fully equipped with descriptive charts to help students gain information about various topics concerning the subject. Students are taught about both normal and abnormal pregnancies through models. Clinical classes for UG students are held under the supervision of experienced teachers in P.O.P.D.’s. Practical training includes antenatal and postnatal care along with the care of the newborn besides treatment of gynaecological disorders. Clinical training facility is provided in Bidhan Nagar Sub-divisional Hospital and Arambagh Sub-divisional Hospital. There are 5 beds earmarked for department of obstetrics and gynaecology in our hospital. Beside charts, models, specimens, departmental teachers also demonstrate different instruments used during operative procedures in details. In presence of teacher, specialist surgeons/doctors students are trained to handle all types of gynaeco-obstetrical problems in O.T., I.P.D. and O.P.D. Students are trained in such a way that they learn appropriate diagnostic techniques, supportive methodologies, research methodology, supervision of patients as well they must get acquaintance about their limitations.
