West Surgical Ward is established since 1871. It is a place with traditions and values. The unit has produced numerous doctors who are professionally competent, humane and sympathetic. Our mission is to manage every patient, who comes across us, with dedication and commitment. Patient’s safety and satisfaction is our motto.
Our aim is to teach and train undergraduates and postgraduates so that they can meet all challenges in the fields of medicine. The unit has two Out Patient Department days in a week which is attended by the consultants, where on an average 150 patients are examined per day. The fourth and final year students attend the OPD as part of their clinical skill enhancing, training programs and are instructed on the patients. There are two full elective lists per week which have on average 20 to 25 cases. These are operated upon by senior surgeons and trainees under direct supervision. The final year students attend the operating sessions and are demonstrated the operative techniques.
The unit is on call in the Accident and Emergency Department on a 4 to 1 Rota basis. Each call day we receive an average of 250 patients of which 30 patients undergo surgery under anesthesia. The student of third, fourth and final year MBBS are taught in the weekly lectures. These students attend the wards where they are instructed in the art of history taking and physical examination. The unit has an average of 12 house officers per rotations who are trained in basic and advanced life support, trauma care and emergency management and in pre and postoperative care of surgical patient. There are twelve postgraduate students pursuing FCPS, MRCS and MS degrees.

They are also supervised while performing minor and intermediate surgical procedures.
