Department of Medicine occupies a unique and cardinal position in any health institution. In a teaching institution, it serves as a pivot for the entire structural framework. General Medicine is considered to be the trunk of a mighty tree, and the several branches, small and large are envisioned as specialties, sub-specialties and super specialties.
The Broad Concept of General Medicine or Internal Medicine as we call it now transcends the contours of curative service and merges with preventive, propagative, rehabilitative components of the Community Medicine which is essential to accomplish the dictum of health as physical, mental and social well- being.
The Department of General Medicine, at DM-WIMS is poised to take up these challenges.
The Department is headed by Dr.C.Rajan, with 33 years of service in Government of Karnataka. Out of the 33 years, he has 18 years of teaching experience both in Mysore Medical College & Research Institute (MMCRI) and Bangalore Medical College & Research Institute (BMCRI). Besides Dr. Rajan, the Department has the services of 2 Associate Professors, 4 Assistant Professors, 2 Senior Residents and 7 Junior Residents.
