The Department boasts its state of art facilities including Hematology Lab, Clinical Physiology Lab, Experimental Physiology Lab, Mammalian Lab, Research Lab and well equipped Library with a total of 110 books, Charts.
CLINICAL PHYSIOLOGY LAB
EXPERIMENTAL PHYSIOLOGY LAB
Lead. Care. Inspire. In short, these are the three major goals of teaching. We believe in learning by doing and encourage the students to develop their practical and clinical skills in scientific study of normal mechanisms, and their interactions, which operate within a living system.
In addition to traditional didactic lectures the Dept uses innovative learner centric small group teaching methodologies to impart training in the cognitive, psychomotor as well as affective domain to undergraduate MBBS students. The Dept of Physiology conducts teaching for students of MBBS 1st Prof. as per MCI norms. These teaching curriculum is distributed among interactive lectures, group discussions, practicals, tutorials and seminars & symposia as per MCI guidelines.
Practical knowledge in clinical practice will be acquired through integrated teaching with preclinical, paralinical & clinical departments and pre-clinical departments.
