Department of Forensic Medicine

About the Department

[A] Introduction:-

The Department of Forensic Medicine was established in 1966 at the J.N. Medical College, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh. It offer courses leading to the award of MBBS and MD degrees. Facilities exist for Ph.D research work. Most of the research is done by the teachers and post graduate students. However, during the last five year plans scanty funds were provided to the department for strengthening the existing research infrastructure. Many Ph. D students from outside the department enjoy the benefit of research infrastructure after obtaining prior permission.

In the XIIth Five Year Plan emphasis has been placed on building for faculty staff and research facilities in pursuance of the strong emphasis laid down by the Medical Council of India in their inspection visits time and again. Similarly deficiencies for post graduate education are to be fulfilled. It is, therefore, decided to develop research labs covering multiple scientific areas. These are not mutually, exclusive. Besides these the deficiencies as per Medical Council of India requirement for under graduate education (150 admissions) and for post graduate education 2001 are to be met as first priority.The M.D degree was recognised vide MCI letter No.40(22)/2009/Med dated 20.01.2010.
