Study of Physiology start with 1½ years of 1st Phase with 340 hrs consisting of 30 hrs Integrated teaching on Anemia, Jaundice, Cyanosis, Lung Functions, Evaluation of Jerks, Diabetes Mellitus etc; lectures 120 hrs; tutorials 120 hrs, and practicals 100 hrs. The whole course will be evaluated by 1st Professional Examination at the end of 1½ years.




General Objectives:

     To produce medical graduates to demonstrate knowledge and skill to proceed to higher studies and research in physiology in relation to needs and disease profile of the country.

Specific Objectives:

explain normal reactions to environment and homeostatic mechanisms.

interpret normal function with a view to differentiate from abnormal function.

understand the normal functions of human body and utilize them as background for clinical studies.

perform and interpret physiology laboratory tests and procedures.

develop sound attitude towards the need for continuing self-education in Physiology.



  Physiology is the science of normal functions and phenomena of living things. The attributes of life are growth, reproduction, repair and adaptation to varied conditions. The most important characteristic of living beings is that their processes are controlled. Much of Physiology is the study of control systems that operate in living beings. The goal of Physiology therefore is to explain the physical and chemical factors that are responsible for the origin, development and progression of life. The course highlights the relevance of basic physiology to clinical practice through use of clinical examples.

  Medical courses in Physiology teach the essentials of life. The Physiology courses are very clinically relevant because the knowledge of the processes underlying the normal physiological functions of all the major organ systems is crucial for understanding pathology, pharmacology and for competent clinical practice. In fact, all of the medicine is based on understanding physiological functions.
