HOD Physiology

Human Physiology is the branch of medicine that deals with the study of
functions of human body. It is intimately related with Human Anatomy, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Pathology, Behavioral Sciences, and is called as the “Mother of Medicine”.

The Physiology Department is on the third floor of the BUMDC building. The
physiology laboratory is very well equipped with latest and modern gadgets, apparatus and instruments like Biopac , Spirometer, Stethograph, Ergometer, Binocular microscopes, Ophthalmoscope, Perimeter, PEF meter, Centrifuge and ECG machine etc.
The laboratory is also provided with overhead projector and multimedia facilities such a provision at our disposal will benefit students maximally in demonstrating CDs and conducting tutorials and experimental work.
The first professional syllabus is taught in six modules in integration with Anatomy,Biochemistry and Community Medicine. The course is basically designed to be student centered with maximum involvement of students as active learners. The mode of information transfer includes lectures, tutorials, interactive sessions, problem based learning (PBL), presentations, and case
based discussions. Recently a separate well equipped ECG room has been established where students learn the skill to take and read ECG under the guidance of their teachers and then practice among themselves.
