Department Facilities & Achievements
Department of Physiology
S. K. Govt. Medical College, Sikar.
Physiology is a branch of medicine that deals with study of functions of human body and the regulation of different organ system. The goal of teaching undergraduate students Medical Physiology is to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the integrated functions of the organ systems, which in turn helps understanding the basis of health and disease. With respect to the knowledge domain, students get equipped with the knowledge of the coordinated body function, the relative contribution of each organ system to the maintenance of the milieu interior, aspects of normal growth and development, physiological responses and adaptations to environmental conditions, the knowledge of the physiological principles underlying pathogenesis as well as treatment of disease. With respect to skills domain, the student becomes able to conduct experiments, designed for study of physiological phenomena and interpret experimental/ investigative data, distinguish between normal and abnormal data, derived as a result of tests, which he/ she performs and observes in the laboratory.
Human physiology is closely related to Anatomy & Biochemistry in that Anatomy is the study of form, and Physiology is the study of body function, whereas biochemistry is the study of body functions at molecular level.
The study of physiology integrates knowledge across many levels, including biochemistry, cell physiology, organ systems and body as a whole. As a discipline, it connects science, medicine & health and creates a framework for understanding how human body adapts to stresses, physical activity and disease.
“The Physiology of today is the medicine of tomorrow.” Ernest E. Starling, Physiologist (1926)
