What is “Physiology”?

Physiology is the scientific study of functioning in human body.

Mission

Physiology is the foundation of all medical sciences. Our Evidence based clinical Medicine is based on Physiology. It connects science, medicine, and health, and creates a framework for understanding how the human body adapts to stresses, physical activity, and disease. This understanding enables students correlate between pathology of a disease & its treatment, contributing to the development of the core skills of a competent doctor.
