This article mainly concerns with mathematical modelling in medicine. There is one area in medicine namely pharmaco- kinetics which have already been mathematicized. There are large areas in medical science which are not amenable to mathematical treatment, and modelling constantly endeavour to widen the areas to which mathematical techniques can be applied for gaining a better insight, and help deepen our understanding of those areas which have already been mathematicized. The skills needed to be successful in applying mathematics are quite different from those needed to understand concepts, to prove theorems or to solve equations. The difficulty is not in learning and understanding the mathematics involved but in seeing where and how to apply it. In this paper an attempt is made to demonstrate the essentials of mathematical modelling without going deep in to the details on specialised topics.
