Introduction

The department of Surgery was started in November 1997 in Dr RPGMC Hospital Dharamshala by two faculty members. Subsequently faculty was increased as per MCI norms and presently department has faculty of ten members. Department of Surgery remained functional at Dharamshala till the time it was shifted to Tanda in December 2007. All the faculty members, senior residents and other staff members have played an important role in establishing the department of Surgery.


Department of surgery is housed mainly in the third floor of hospital building. Faculty complex, 125 bedded indoor wards and major operation theatres are located in third floor of hospital building.

Vision

 

Mission  


1. To provide highest quality and most compassionate clinical care to our patients. 
2. To provide best training to post graduate & senior residents and MBBS students with the aim to generate future leaders in general surgery. 


Core Values 


The department is committed to: 
1. Serve with integrity & honesty 
2. Serve with compassion 
3. Work at highest level of performance with a commitment to learn new for continuous improvement.  


Our Vision 


The department of surgery of Dr Rajendra Prasad Government Medical College Tanda was started in the year 1998 in Zonal Hospital Dharamshala with a faculty of two members as one unit. Within next three years the department expanded to three units. We started the PG course as DNB Surgery in the 2007 and subsequently regular PG course was started in 2011 with the intake of two postgraduates which was increased to 7 seats in the year 2016. Presently department is working in four units with a faculty of ten members.  


Our future vision is as under: 
1. Expansion of department to six units for which we need faculty of 18 members and 180 beds. 
2. Department envisions advanced surgeries which require availability of high end equipment like advanced laparoscopic equipment, harmonic/ vessel sealing system, operative ultrasound and equipment for sentinel lymph node biopsy.  
3. Efforts to get trained staff for the handling and maintenance of these advanced high end equipments. 
4. To provide highest quality clinical care, the department requires dedicated laparoscopic operation theatres along with modular operation theatres. 
5. To provide our services to maximum patients, the department requires an increase in daily number of operation tables. 
6. Department does not have surgical intensive care unit so efforts to establish SICU. 
7. Training of faculty for skill development, administration and research at the time of joining and periodical trainings in the surgical advancements 
8. Continuous learning by organising/attending CMEs, workshops and conferences. 
9. Developing an aptitude and an environment that is conducive for research at the UG, PG and faculty levels.
