          Department of Physiology & Biochemistry



Introduction :The Dept. was established in the year 1980

Department promotes knowledge of how the human body functions through a detailed study of cells, organs and systems. A thorough knowledge of the physiological mechanisms regulating normal function is essential to understand the pathophysiology of the underlying diseases.

Biochemistry is a subject that is growing at a very fast pace, as seen from the number of leading journals, publications and citations of publications. It is a subject which is very active in research, teaching and service (Clinical Biochemistry investigations).

The purpose of a course in physiology is to teach the functions , processes, and inter relationship of different organs and systems of normal and disturbance in disease and to equip the student with normal standards of reference for use while diagnosing and treating deviations from the normal.

To Homoeopath the human organism is an integrated whole of body, life and mind: and though life includes all the chemico-physical process it transcends them. There can be no symptoms of disease without vital force animating the human organism and it is primarily the vital force which is deranged in disease. Physiology shall be taught from the stand point of description physical processes underlying them in health.

1. Department has the following Objectives-

  • A student shall be able to – To know the normal function of all system, their regulatory mechanism and the interactions for a cell co-ordinate total body function.
  • Understand the basic principles, mechanism and holistic control of all the function of the human body as a whole.
  • Analyze the physiological & Biochemical responses and adaptations of the persons to the life process.
  • Know the physiological and biological basis of the disease and application of this knowledge in the understanding the treatment of the patient.
  • Acquiring the skills to conduct experiment and interpret the data to solve the clinical problems.
