In the beginning Biochemistry was part of Physiology and later from 1972 onwards it became an independent subject. The course consists of theory and practical and it is included in the first M.B.B.S. course. Students were taught to understand the basic changes in diseases that occur at the cellular level and in practicals they are doing the important biochemical investigations in the blood.

Periodic inspection by Medical Council of India has recommended changes in the subject and examination pattern. Post graduation course M.D. Biochemistry was started from academic year 1972. Till date 22 post graduates were produced from the department.
