The Department of Microbiology CIMS

Chamarajanagar institute of medical sciences has started in the year 2016 at Yadabetta, Chamarajanagar. It was inaugurated by then honourable chief minister of Karnataka, Sri Siddaramaiah. Every year as per MCI/NMC permission, we take 150 admissions for MBBS course. Apart from that we are having paramedical BSc & Diploma courses, BSc & Diploma nursing courses.

Department of microbiology is having committed faculties including one professor, two associate professors, three assistant professors, senior resident and four tutors. The Department of Microbiology has three primary responsibilities such as teaching/ training, diagnostic laboratory services and research activities.

The department is actively involved in teaching undergraduates of medical, paramedical and allied health sciences. Training and educational events are organized in the form of theory classes, practical classes, small group discussions, internal exams and individual student attention and seminars.

During COVID-19 pandemic we have started a “State of art” molecular lab which is rendering the services in diagnosis of COVID. RT-PCR is working 24/7 with dedicated staffs like two research scientists, twelve skilled laboratory technicians, nine data entry operators & five multitasking staff.  So far, we have conducted more than six lakh RT-PCR COVID test till date. Further we have fully functional central lab which consists of bacteriology, serology, virology, mycology, parasitology and mycobacteriology sections in it.
