Department of General Surgery was incorporated in Government Medical College, Akola in 2002 as one of the final year subject with aim of providing quality education to undergraduate students.
The department provides basic training in General Surgery to undergraduates and also provides general surgical care for patients.
The patients coming to this institute are not only from Akola district but also from neighbouring districts like Amravati, Buldana, Washim & some part of Yavatmal. Since Government Medical College was established on existing District Hospital which was one of pioneer referral unit in this area since 1927, the department too inherits the faith of masses in patient care. This department is committed to ensure accessible, high quality and ethical care for all patients coming to this hospital.
