The purpose of this program is to standardize Physiology teaching at Post Graduate level and achieve uniformity in undergraduate teaching. Accordingly, the training in M.D. Physiology should be distinctive from that in M.Sc., Ph.D., (Physiology) where the approach to the subject is primarily experimental.
A candidate qualifying in the M.D. (Physiology) examinations should be able to:-
- Be a competent physiologist
- Effectively teach undergraduate medical (and paramedical) students the basic physiological mechanisms of human body, with reference to their implications in the pathogenesis of diseases (Patho physiology) and the physiological basis of their management
- Conduct clinical/experimental research having significance to the human health and patient care
- Interact with the allied departments by rendering services in advanced laboratory investigations
- Acquire skills in conducting collaborative research in the field of physiology & allied sciences
- Demonstrate to the students how the knowledge of physiology can be used in a variety of clinical settings to solve diagnostic and therapeutic problems
