With the formal inauguration of the Department of the Pharmacology in 1926, a new approach was made to the teaching of the old subject of drugs, which instead of being a mere Materia Medica, became an experimental study of the response of living organisms, particularly humans, to various drugs. The teaching of the subject was, for the first time, accompanied by practical demonstrations that helped improve the understanding of the action of various drugs. At the same time, the foundation was laid for conducting experimental and clinical research activities utilizing the available equipment and by collaborating with other departments of the hospital and also with other Institutions.
With the passage of time, the Department has been able to keep pace with the developments both in the field of Clinical Pharmacology as well as Ayurveda. It has instituted innovations in teaching, which include introduction of computer aided teaching methods, clinical pharmacy and p drug concept with emphasis on the procedure for selection of drugs. Both practicals and small group discussions are now problem oriented. It has also excelled in research. The services offered by the Department have benefited not just the institutional staff members but also the lay people by way of increasing awareness and educating them on drugs, both herbal and synthetic.
