Physiology

Introduction

Physiology is the answer to man’s quest for knowledge of how the various body systems function and what are the cellular and biological mechanisms underlying these functions. It intrigues the mind and enchants the intellect. The department of Physiology is lodged on the 2nd floor of the Basic Sciences Block of Hitec –IMS. Our faculty works with dedication and enthusiasm to holistically deliver these concepts so that our students find it fun to be a part of this endeavor.

  • Develop ongoing interdepartmental partnerships to extend and enrich our academic and research profiles.
  • Promote and empower faculty, students, and alumni that lead to a substantial enhancement in departmental visibility.
  • Attract high achieving students and well-established faculty members.

COURSE OUTLINE (MBBS)

The physiology will be taught in the first two years of medical studies. We use a systems-based approach to teach it. During the First Year students will learn:

  • Cell, Nerve & Muscle & Blood Physiology (BLOCK – 1)
  • Respiratory & unusual climate Physiology & exercise Physiology (BLOCK – 2)
  • Cardiovascular physiology (BLOCK – 3)

In the Second Year, they will learn

  • Renal & GIT Physiology(BLOCK – 1)
  • Neurophysiology(BLOCK – 2)
  • Special senses, Endocrinology, Reproductive Physiology (BLOCK – 3)

We use innovative MITs like Case-Based Learning sessions, seminars, and student presentations along with interactive lectures, tutorials, and practicals to deliver our content.

PHYSIOLOGY LAB is equipped with the latest instruments and equipment like Powerlab, spirometers, ergometers, ECG Machines, binocular microscopes PEF meters, ophthalmoscopes, perimeters, and centrifuges, etc.
