Students interested in this area of body science are guided by a team of dedicated faculty members with excellent teaching resources. The sessions are a mix of both theoretical/practical training and pre-clinical knowledge instruction. Regular symposia, seminars and journal club meetings create forums for the exchange of ideas. Faculty members use both vertical and horizontal methods of lecture and demonstration classes so that students can have a deeper understanding of applied physiology.
The undergraduate students are given a sound grounding in the basics of physiology. The curriculum is comprised of lectures backed by practical classes where students apply concepts in real time. The program imparts to students a detailed look at physiology, instructing them through tutorials, seminars and group discussions and motivating them in research activities of their interest under the guidance of expert faculty.
Physiology students have access to spacious laboratories outfitted with the latest equipment:
- Hematology laboratory: microscopes, binocular microscopes, centrifuges, hemocytometer along with other equipment for conducting hematology experiments, such as solutions and reagents
- Mammalian laboratory: facilities for experiments on large and small animals
- Clinical physiology laboratory: equipped for examining human subjects, such as ECG, spirometer, ergometer, perimeter
- Amphibian laboratory: equipment for conducting heart and muscle experiments
- Research laboratory: polygraphs and physiographs for recording and studying the physiological activities of the subjects.
