Clinical and laboratory facilities

The department has both outpatient and inpatient facilities. An average of 40-50 outpatients attend the clinic every day. Students will have access to some of the best facilities in the examination rooms, where they will be taught how to recognize different strains of the bacterium causing disease and their effects on patients. The examination rooms have facilities for diagnostic bronchoscopy, Directly Observed Therapy Strategy (DOTS) and Pulmonary Function Tests (PFT). The inpatient ward has 20 beds for male and female patients. Video bronchoscopy is used for diagnostic purpose, while the PFT machine is used for testing lung function.
