If specialties form the cornerstones in medicine, then general medicine provides the fundamental base for the diagnosis and treatment of patients. This department works round-the-clock, taking care of both inpatients and outpatients at the hospital and bringing students in vital medical contact with patients.

The undergraduate program trains students in medical skills and inculcates in them respect for human life. Their curriculum takes the form of regular bedside clinics followed by frequent assessments. Students are thrown into problem-oriented teaching sessions during outpatient clinics, challenging them to use their knowledge to come up with a diagnosis and treatment.
The department has already initiated several projects in the research arena. Two projects in the field of diabetics are currently on the anvil. In collaboration with the Ophthalmology Department, the faculty is conducting a study on diabetic neuropathy. Soon a diabetic foot clinic will be started in association with other departments. A bronchial asthma clinic and hypertension clinic will also be started. Postgraduate courses and Diploma NB in Medicine are in the offing.
Apart from the inpatient and outpatient wards, the department runs an Intensive Medical Care Unit, an Intensive Cardiac Care Unit and a Respiratory Intensive Care Unit, as well as a Toxicology Center that specializes in snake-bite management.
