A research form is an integral part of the education programme of
the Institute. Scientific inquiry includes basic research, and clinic
research. Questions about a disease and its diagnosis and therapy are raised
in a clinical setting, and answer obtained by using scientific methods in the
laboratory is then translated into clinical practice. Writing a
thesis/dissertation inculcates in the candidate the basic elements of planning
and executing a scientific experiment with a well-defined objective. These are
the basis of an advance in scientific experiment with a well-defined
objective. These are the basis of an advance in scientific thought or problem
management. The candidates also undergo a short training course in general
research methodology and bio-statistical methods in medical research.
GMC has always made an endeavor to direct its various research
activities to the relative needs of the society. The research work is carried
out in accordance with nationally and internationally approved guidelines. It
has to be cleared by a committee of experts from the viewpoint of its
necessity and safety of the subjects to be studied along with its ethics. The
student pursuing the post graduation courses are required to write a
thesis/dissertation on a particular subject. During training the residents
thus gain a first hand experience of conducting research in the laboratories
along with community and patient care management. All the departments
undertake research in the area of national importance. A unique feature of
research at this Institute is the establishment of the Department of
Experimental Medicine which helps various clinical departments to have an
in-depth research at the level of molecular biology and basic sciences to
correlate with the various clinical problems e.g. hypertension, coronary
artery disease, rheumatic heart diseases, mal-absorption, etc.
