The department of Otorhinolaryngology provides outpatient services from 8.30 AM to 4.00 PM on week days. On holidays, emergency services such as foreign body removal, emergency tracheostomies are done. Free hearing aids were provided on world hearing day to patients who were not affordable. Utmost care is given to sick patients. Patients can choose between general wards, semiprivate wards and private wards. Special consultation is provided in peripheral centers such as urban health center at Karapakkam, rural health centre at Poonjeri.

The department handles undergraduate MBBS students in the prefinal year and high academic performance of the undergraduates is maintained constantly. This goal is achieved by the effective mentor-mentee system. Slow Learners are given special coaching for both theory and clinical. High achievers are encouraged to attend quiz competition in various other institutions. Small group teaching is carried out during clinical sessions. Students are encouraged and prepared to send to educative forums, CME in regional & state level. The department is provided with library which is useful for UG and PG students.

The Postgraduate Course offered is MS ENT and the student is trained to list the causes and mechanism of common ENT diseases and emergencies, define the appropriate diagnostic tools for the ENT diseases while applying recent modalities of diagnosis, Interpret the investigations and to formulate appropriate management plans. They are also trained to perform basic surgeries.

Patient Care

The department of Otorhinolaryngology provides outpatient services from 8.30 AM to 4.00 PM on week days. On holidays, emergency services such as foreign body removal, emergency tracheostomies are done. Free hearing aids were provided on world hearing day to patients who were not affordable. Utmost care is given to sick patients. Patients can choose between general wards, semiprivate wards and private wards. Special consultation is provided in peripheral centers such as urban health center at Karapakkam, rural health centre at Poonjeri.

Teaching

The department handles undergraduate MBBS students in the prefinal year and high academic performance of the undergraduates is maintained constantly. This goal is achieved by the effective mentor-mentee system. Slow Learners are given special coaching for both theory and clinical. High achievers are encouraged to attend quiz competition in various other institutions. Small group teaching is carried out during clinical sessions. Students are encouraged and prepared to send to educative forums, CME in regional & state level. The department is provided with library which is useful for UG and PG students.

The Postgraduate Course offered is MS ENT and the student is trained to list the causes and mechanism of common ENT diseases and emergencies, define the appropriate diagnostic tools for the ENT diseases while applying recent modalities of diagnosis, Interpret the investigations and to formulate appropriate management plans. They are also trained to perform basic surgeries.

TEMPORAL BONE DISSECTION SERWELL OPD OTOMICROSCOPE

Special educational initiatives taken by the department include clinical case, journal club and seminar presentations, temporal bone dissection, group discussions.

Other courses handled include AHS students from pulmonology department,dental postgraduates,ophthalmology postgraduates are being posted in our department and taught about ENT related aspects. Basic audiometric evaluation is explained to students from physiology department.

Research

Research based on industrial camp visits are conducted on regular basis to identify noise induced hearing loss and necessary management is given to prevent permanent hearing loss. Newborn screening for hearing loss is done to identify and treat hearing impairment in newborns. Recent research based on COVID – 19 sample collection is performed.

Ongoing Research- Students

Post graduates under the guidance of the faculties are encouraged to involve in research activities to conduct research. The following are the ongoing research projects.

  1. A cross sectional study of middle ear function following endoscopic sinus surgery in chronic rhinosinusitis patients.
  2. Assessment of hearing in patients with diabetes mellitus and normal population – a comparative study
  3. A cross sectional study on hearing impairment of newborns in a tertiary care center
