Forensic medicine brings the investigative capabilities of modern medicine to the aid of law and justice. Here students will have to apply their knowledge of the various sciences to the human body.
Students are exposed to techniques and rare aspects of forensic medicine through debates and conferences. In January 2007, for example, a CME program was conducted by inviting an Australian forensic pathologist for an insightful discussion on clinical forensic medicine. Students of II M.B.B.S. won laurels at the inter-collegiate mock court trial held at Meenakshi Medical College, Kancheepuram in March 2007.
The research laboratory gives you access to all the resources you need for research and a highly qualified faculty who are always at hand to guide you.
Mock court :
Students of this science are placed in real-time scenarios in the mock court facility that the department has prepared. This familiarizes them with the court atmosphere and functioning while teaching them the art of open debate. They are also equipped to tackle any of the medico-legal cases in clinical forensic medicine as well as forensic thanatology.
Laboratories and facilities :
=> Besides spacious laboratories and a well-equipped seminar hall, all the facilities are as per the norms of the MCI. Every student has access to X-ray lobbies and illumination lamps as well as microscopes for examination of forensic trace evidences.
=> The laboratory has a stock of X-ray images of over 50 individuals that are an invaluable aid to teach the students about estimation of age from ossification. The laboratory has 15 teeth moulds and ortho pantamographic photos to teach age estimation by dentition. The laboratory also has a large collection of bones to help students understand the various aspects of forensic sciences including age estimation.
Virtual museum :
The Forensic Department's virtual museum has found appreciation as a one-of-a-kind facility with its collection of forensic photographs, wet specimens, different species of well-preserved snakes, chemical and plant poisons, weapons of assault and various sport, industrial, as well as domestic implements.
