The Department of Physiology is home to undergraduate, postgraduate and Ph.D. students who desire training in human physiology that will prepare them for careers in medicine, allied health professionals and biomedical research. At under graduate level, future researchers / educators / physicians / physical therapists and healthcare providers receive multidisciplinary training to prepare them for desired goals. In addition to completion of core science courses, students are challenged to question critically, think logically and communicate clearly.

They also examine the health sciences that explore the functional and structural mechanisms underlining human life across health and diseases using variety of physiological methods ranging from biochemical to systemic techniques. The Postgraduate and Ph.D. programmes develop researchers and health care professionals who are creative thinkers and innovators.

Faculty members recognize cutting edge translational research from basic physiologic mechanism through integrative system physiology related to health and physical activity which have major influence on disease treatment and prevention.

The department is studded with state-of-the-art laboratories that use physiological and bioengineering methods to evaluate human subjects under spectrum of conditions.

The department prides itself in its research output by awards, publishing number of research papers in indexed journals, and book publication; a glimpse of the above is as follows:

- President’s Appreciation Award by IMA, National Best Research Award by APPI in 2007 & 2010. Krishna’s Anatomy and Physiology – I in 2009 and volume II 2017
