About our Department


The pre-clinical department of Physiology deals with the normal functioning of human body. It forms the foundation of basic medical sciences along with anatomy and biochemistry. The Department of Physiology is situated in the 5th floor of academic block. It has a hard working team of faculty who are incorporating innovative teaching learning methods and assessment for the betterment of students.

The goal of teaching Medical Physiology undergraduate students is to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the integrated functions of the organ systems which in turn helps understanding the basis of health and disease. With respect to the knowledge domain, students will be equipped with the knowledge of the coordinated body function, the relative contribution of each organ system to the maintenance of the milieu interior, aspects of normal growth and development, physiological responses and adaptations to environmental conditions and the knowledge of the physiological principles underlying pathogenesis and treatment of disease. With respect to skills domain the student will be able to conduct experiments designed for study of Physiological phenomena and interpret experimental /investigative data, distinguish between normal and abnormal data derived as a result of tests which he/she has performed and observed in the laboratory.

Departmental Focus (Academics)

The new curriculum includes both horizontal and vertical integration with relevant clinical subjects. Using different learning methods- small group learning, clinical cases, tutorials, lectures, role plays and demonstrations, the course material shall be presented as an introduction to human physiological systems. Much of clinical medicine relies on understanding molecular, cellular and organ-system physiology and we take meticulous care to lay a strong foundation.

Our vision is to create a dedicated, competent and compassionate Indian medical graduate (IMG); whose goal is to serve humanity and to uphold the ideals of our noble profession.
