Physiology

Our body is nothing short of an amazing machine. No machine ever constructed can perform even a minutest body-like function as effectively as our bodies can do. Physiology aims to understand the fascinating mechanisms of our body. Human physiology studies how our cells, muscles and organs work together, how they interact. Physiology, sometimes referred to as "the science of life", looks at living mechanisms from molecular basis of cell function to the whole integrated behavior of the entire body. Our shared vision is to develop high quality professionals to pursue the excellence in the field of medicine and surgery.
