OF PHYSIOLOGY AND BIOCEHMISTRY
The department of Physiology and Biochemistry was
established in the year 2000 since the inception of the college with its unique
vision and mission. Physiology and Biochemistry is a preclinical subject under
UG programme of the institution. Physiology is the science that studies
functions in living organisms-how the various parts of the body normally work,
and how their activities are regulated, coordinated and integrated for
maintaining the well being of the organism as a whole. To a homoeopath, the
human organism is an integrated whole of body, life and mind and there can be
no symptoms of disease without vital force, animating the human organism which
is deranged in disease. Physiology shall be taught from the stand point of
describing physical processes underlying them in health. Biochemistry helps to
integrate molecular events with structure and functions of human body in health
The department which includes a faculty room with
library, laboratories, demonstration room and museum has an ample space of
292.98 sqm .
Well equipped and sufficiently ventilated separate
Physiology and Biochemistry labs which can accommodate 100 students at a
Separate demonstration room for conducting various
clinical and systemic examinations similar to the bedside examination done
The department makes use of conventional
techniques/instruments to perform biochemical analysis relevant to
clinical screening and diagnosis.
Training in skill lab provided with models, mannequins
and simulation methods to practice the clinical skills of physical
examination and procedures.
Department library with 219 books including the latest
physiology and biochemistry reference books, CDs and DVDs.
Museum with a display of good collection of models.
Well trained dedicated faculties and supporting staffs.
Vertical and horizontal methods of integration with
various departments while teaching different systems.
The department has made innovations in teaching
learning methodology like student assisted teaching.
Apart from the conventional lecture methods various
student centric methods are also adopted by the department.
Developing and maintaining high-standard physiology
educational programmes that nurture a spirit of inquiry and self learning
at the same time.
