Overview of Department:

Medical physiology concentrates on the organisation and functioning of human body. Physiology is the basis for understanding diseased states and their treatment modality.
Our Physiology department includes enthusiastic and hardworking faculty. Regular Undergraduate and Post Graduate activities are taking place. We have 3 Ph.D scholars doing their Doctorate thesis.
Department renders high quality teaching and training undergraduate and postgraduate students. It has a well-structured program for undergraduate and postgraduate students which includes lectures, tutorials, Seminars, Journal Clubs, laboratory practicals and demonstrations. Department encourages faculty and doctoral candidates to take new interesting research projects, and present the topic in conferences and do publications. Physiology department actively participate in research and medical education activities. In collaboration with clinical departments we conduct integrated teaching and early clinical exposure to make the subject more interesting and improvethe ability of studentsto learn about pathological aspects of diseases.

Imparting knowledge of physiology to paramedical courses like dentistry and nursing also come under department’s purview.
Under the guidance of Institutional Head, Academic and extracurricular performances of students are closely monitored with a strong and efficient mentorship program. Regular feedback is taken from students regarding teaching learning methods, any suggestions for improvise is considered.

Planning for digital clinical laboratory set up in coming days. Implementation of AETCOM from this academic batch 2019-20.
