About the Department


The broad goal of the teaching of undergraduate students in physiology aims at providing the student comprehensive knowledge of the normal functions of the organ systems of the body to facilitate an understanding of the physiological basis of health and diseases.


At the end of the course the student shall be able to

  1. Describe the normal functions of all the organ systems, their regulatory mechanisms and interactions of the various systems for well-coordinated total body function.
  2. Understand the relative contribution of each organ system in the maintenance of the milieu interior (homeostasis).
  3. Explain the physiological aspects of normal growth and development. Analyse the physiological responses and adaptation to environmental stresses.
  4. Comprehend the physiological principles underlying pathogenesis and treatment of disease.
  5. Correlate knowledge of physiology of human reproductive system in relation to National Family Welfare Program.


At the end of the course the student shall be able to;

  1. Conduct experiments designed for study of physiological phenomena.
  2. Interpret experimental/investigative data.
  3. Distinguish between normal & abnormal data derived as a result of tests which he/she has performed and observed in the laboratory.


At the end of the integrated teaching the student shall acquire an integrated knowledge of organ structure and function and its regulatory mechanisms. Horizontal and vertical Integrated teaching is conducted regularly to provide detailed knowledge about various physiological systems and biological processes. Cell, hepatic system, coronary circulation, thyroid gland, etc. topics were taught by Horizontal Integration.
