Human physiology is the fundamental block of medical science and it endeavors to explain and explore various homeostatic processes which ultimately orchestrate to make fully functional human being. Main objectives of Department of Physiology: Develop itself as a center of excellence in provision of integrated teaching, research and clinical services. In due course of time, department has vision to establish advanced clinical and research laboratories in fields of cardiovascular physiology, Neurophysiology, Life-style modification & Yoga, Autonomic functions and Pulmonary functions (Sleep Laboratory). Department also envisions to participate along with clinical departments for the establishment of Intra-operative Neurophysiological Monitoring system in GIMS Operation theaters that will significantly reduce morbidity and mortality of patients. There will also be facilities available for both under-graduate and Post-graduate training.
Provide environment which inculcates leadership and excellence in teaching and research.
Provide students with an integrated educational experience that prepares them for successful careers in Health Professions, Biomedical Research, and Academia.
