Department of Physiology

Human Physiology is the branch of medicine where the students learn about the normal functioning of all the systems of the body at gross as well as the cellular level. This knowledge helps the students to learn and understand the various disease processes occurring in the human body. Physiology hence becomes the soul of the clinical subjects. The students learn the basic clinical skills, hematological investigations, pulmonary and cardiac function tests, interpretation of ECG in Physiology before going to the clinical subjects. The department also boasts of having fully computerized 8 channel polyrite D, single and multi channel physiographs, computerized spirometer along with latest version of Neuroperfect, all of which are used in the research by the faculty members and are also to demonstrate various electrophysiological recordings to the students. The dedicated faculty is always ready to help the students to make the subject interesting and more meaningful.

Courses Offered

  • MD (Physiology)

The Department of Physiology, is located on the second floor of the college building of Geetanjali Medical College and Hospital

  • The department is actively involved in teaching the undergraduate & post graduate students and research.
  • Teaching is carried out in the form of didactic lectures, practicals and demonstrations, tutorials, seminars, microteaching; problem based learning, group discussions, quiz sessions and Journal clubs.
  • Further to add another jewel in the crown, we have received the permission from MCI to begin the post graduate course in Physiology (MD Physiology)
  • The department has an attached, fully equipped and well stocked central animal house, which is duly approved by CPCSEA. We have lately acquired the animal simulator for teaching the animal experiments to the students
