DEPARTMENT OF VETERINARY GYNAECOLOGY & OBSTETRICSINARY GYNAECOLOGY AND OBSTETRICS

 

The mandate of the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics is to impart clinical training to the students to diagnose and treat gynecological, obstetrical and fertility problems both in pets, small and large animals. Clinical examination, artificial insemination and pregnancy diagnosis etc. is performed at farmers’ doorstep during the clinical camps organized by VCC in nearby villages from time to time.

The Department has following sanctioned strength of Faculty:
