Department of Physiology

Physiology is the science and art of knowing the functioning of an organism. In the human Physiology we study the working of our own body at different levels – gross, system, organ, tissue and molecular level. This develops the basis for medicine. According to late Dr. Guyton, “Physiology is indeed an explanation of life. What other subject matter is more fascinating, more exciting, more beautiful than the subject of life?” The subject of Physiology is taught in three modes-theory lectures, small group discussions and experimental Physiology based upon the theory discussions. There is a regular feed-back in the form of pre-tests and tests. Faculty of Physiology Department comprises qualified professionals with vast experience in their fields as subject specialist, supported by the equally competent Para-medical staff. Located on the ground floor, the department has a spacious well-furnished and well-equipped air conditioned laboratory. It has a working space sufficient for 50 students at a time where facilities for experimental Physiology, regarding hematology, cardiovascular system, respiration, special senses, nerve and muscle etc exist. Training of various clinical examinations is also conducted. In short it is a center of excellence for teaching, training and providing opportunities for research both at under-graduate and post-graduate level.
