About Department Of Physiology

Department of physiology was established in the year 1984, initially department was recognised for UG MBBS course. Later on department was recognised for MD Physiology programme in 1991. In the year 2011 Department started M.Sc Medical physiology Programme. In the year 2012 Phd in Medical physiology was started.

Looking at the needs in the field of neurology, department started fellowship in NCV & EMG in the year 2019 & B.Sc Neurophysiology Technology program in 2021.

Other than Teaching & learning, departments is involved in carrying out & reporting of special investigations for the patients referred from Krishna Hospital & Other hospitals from nearby districts.

List of Special Investigations:

1) Electroencephalography (EEG)

2) Nerve Conduction & Electromyography (NCV & EMG)

3) Pulmonary Function Test (PFT)

Department is actively involved in carrying out various extension activities like pollution control, Yoga, Health & Nutrition. Department is also involved in research & IPR activities & ICMR Projects. All the teaching staff members of the department are helping, assisting & organizing University NAAC activities.


To promote need based & value based education & contribute to the advancement of medical science through research.

To apply the knowledge of Clinical Physiology for diagnosis and betterment of patients.


To explain the physical and chemical factors that are responsible for the origin, development and progression of life

To impart basic principles of mechanisms and homeostatic control of functions of human body as a whole.

To emphasize on applied aspect of physiological functions underlying disease status

To promote innovations in curriculum development, teaching-learning methods and student assessment.

To promote scientific research among faculty and students.
