Committees and Cells
The institute has a hierarchical organization structure that executes the work by delegating responsibilities to the committees. Several statutory committees are existing for the effective functioning of regular academic, patient care & administrative purpose and also several non- statutory committees exist for the overall wellbeing and development of the staffs and students. Each committees functions with prime focus on their set guidelines and objectives in line with vision and mission of college and monitors the work frequently.
The quality working standards of the institution is continuously monitored and held high through the IQAC. IQAC coordinator convenes a meeting every month with Principal as the chairperson. It serves as a common platform where active participation & representations are made from heads of all academic & non-academic departments thus practicing a consensual approach in decision making.
Administration is effectively planned well in advance every year by the Principal and the heads of the departments. College objectives are framed each year after reviewing the previous accomplishments and in line with Vision& Mission of the institution. HOD’s frame the Department objectives in accordance with the college objectives after due consultation with their staffs and every staff frame their individual objectives and work towards their assigned task & scope. HOD meeting headed by Principal followed by staff meeting headed by respective HODs is the decentralization policy followed which help to periodically review and implement quality working standards in the institution.
The functional organizational structure permits decentralization and participative decision making process. The policies are framed with active participation from management, Principal and Heads of all departments. Individual departments and committees function autonomously setting their objectives based on the policy decision made and reviewed periodically by their respective heads/chairperson through meetings. Their functioning in turn are monitored through the HOD meeting and Committee review meeting at frequent intervals. Management assesses the functioning state of the institution biannually through MRM meeting where direct representations are made by all the department heads. Thus clear lines of communication and different levels of authority is established which scrutinizes work at all levels hence maintaining a high quality standard in academics, administration and patient care.
The work flow at APDCH is efficiently managed and monitored through establishment of several committees. Each committee comprises a chairperson, member secretary and members from various departments. They function in-accordance with their guidelines and objectives to meet periodically and assess their work progress so that action plan may be executed. The chairperson is usually at professor/HOD level, Member Secretary at Reader level and Lecturers constitute the members. Non-academic members are also included based on the committee. Chairperson organizes meeting with a set of agenda, discuss with the team members and arrives at a decision. The minutes are documented by the member secretary and uploaded in CIS portal with the approval of the chairperson. The segregation of workforce through committees involving faculty at all levels is a strategic way to inculcate administrative & leadership skills across all cadres.
