Department of PHYSIOLOGY

Unveiling the Dynamics of Human Function


Unveiling the physiological basis of health and disease. Integrating pharmacology, pathology, cell biology, and physiology to clarify therapeutic options for diseases. Equipping students with comprehensive knowledge of organ system functions, regulatory mechanisms, and their interactions. Enabling a holistic understanding of the maintenance of internal balance (homeostasis). Correlating physiology with growth, development, adaptation, and disease. Linking the physiology of the human reproductive system with national family welfare programs.



Our department provides a nurturing environment for learning and discovery:

  • Well-Equipped Laboratories: Spacious and well-furnished labs designed for hands-on learning and experimentation.
  • Demonstration Room: Enhanced with modern audio-visual aids to facilitate comprehensive learning.
  • Library and Seminar Room: A treasure trove of resources for academic exploration and discussions.
  • Physiology Museum: A journey through the historical evolution of physiology, engaging students with the subject’s rich legacy.
  • Haematology Laboratory: Students can engage in hands-on exploration of hematological processes, gaining practical insights into blood-related research and analysis.
  • Mammalian Laboratory: From cardiovascular investigations to neurophysiological experiments, students can deepen their comprehension of mammalian body functions.
  • Amphibian Laboratory: Furnished with essential apparatus, students can delve into the unique physiological characteristics of amphibians, drawing comparisons with human and other animal systems.
  • Clinical Physiology Laboratory: In this laboratory, students can bridge theoretical knowledge with real-world applications. Fitted with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, aspiring clinicians can simulate clinical scenarios and gain hands-on experience in assessing and diagnosing physiological conditions.

Departmental Activities

  • Competency-Based Education: Following NMC guidelines, we employ Competency-Based Medical Education (CBME) for holistic skill development.
  • Assessment Framework: Weekly tests, formative and summative exams to foster problem-solving skills and clinical decision-making.
  • Student-Centric Learning: Our methodologies prioritize student involvement, utilizing problem-based learning, integrated teaching, practical sessions, seminars, tutorials, computer-assisted learning, simulations, quiz competitions, and skill labs.
  • Early Clinical Exposure: Students engage with real patients early on, bridging theoretical understanding with practical applications.
