• Pathology department of Medical College Bhavnagar was started in July - August 1996.

  • At that time Sir T. Hospital was a Civil hospital & as in other hospitals there was a single laboratory in which all the work was carried out including Blood Bank. The building for the department was not built.

  • Slowly the department started functioning as the building was built, instrument & other things were purchased & in 97 March first batch of II M.B.B.S. students came to the department. In 2005 our department strated 2 seats of M.D. pathology. In 2019 our department had 8 M.D. Pathology seats. Now at present our department has 14 M.D. Pathology seats. 

  • Gradually the charge of the laboratory was handed over to pathology department.

  • The old Blood Bank was not as per norms of a blood bank associated with teaching hospital. So it had to be started in a renovated fashion which was ultimately done in July 2000.

  • Histopathology was also started & a full fledged department is existing since thereof.
