Department of Forensic Medicine

Forensic Medicine is a field of medicine which acts as a bridge between medicine and law and this department has been dealing with cases of medicolegal autopsies, age estimation, injury examination, drunkenness examination, medicolegal examination of victim and perpetrators of sexual assault, torture victim examination and various other medicolegal cases. Similarly, the alleged cases of Sexual Assault and other gender-based violence-related cases are also being frequently examined in OCMC.

The Department has been helping the legal system frequently by visiting the court as an expert witness. It has almost all the necessary equipment for conducting medicolegal autopsies and sample collection. There are also facilities for the storage of dead bodies. 

This department is in its growing phase and has planned to develop Toxicological Garden where we can grow various plants of Toxicological values so that undergraduates and Postgraduates can learn toxicology and also has planned to establish museum for teaching and learning process.
