Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
The department has responsibility for teaching obstetrics and gynaecology to clinical students. Obstetrics is the medical practice dealing with the care of women and their children during pregnancy (prenatal period), childbirth and the postnatal period. Gynaecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive system (uterus, vagina, and ovaries). Literally, outside medicine, it means “the science of women” – it deals with women’s complaints—gynaecological diseases, fertility, pregnancy, contraception, etc.
