It is spread over an area of 18,000 sq.ft with spacious and well equipped laboratories. The department has 14 faculty including 9 faculties with PG qualification who have completed their post graduation from various other institutions.

There are 6 PG guides in the department to impart excellent training to Post Graduates. The department imparts training to 150 MBBS students and 2 MD students every year. Apart from these training is also provided to UG & PG Dental, Physiotherapy & Nursing students. Discipline is a priority and is strictly enforced by the entire faculty in the department. Students are monitored regularly for their attendance and performance in periodic assessments. Parents are intimated regarding the progress of their wards regularly. Below average students are identified at a very early stage and mentoring is done for them. To enrich the knowledge and bring about competitive spirit among students, National & state level Quiz & CMEs are conducted every year for Under Graduate & Post Graduate students. A perfect combination of experienced faculty and good infra structure provides an ideal learning experience to the young aspiring doctors.

Department of Physiology Facilities

Department has four well equipped and spacious Laboratories, Seminar Hall, Library & Demonstration rooms. Haematology lab has a seating capacity of 90 students where undergraduates get to work at separate stations. For every 13 students there is a faculty to guide them during their practical hours. Clinical lab is in a separate wing equipped with 15 clinical beds. The students get to learn the art of clinical examination on simulated patients. Human Physiology lab has a seating capacity of 60 students where undergraduates get to work at separate stations. For every 13 students there is a faculty to guide them during their practical hours. The student gets training in non hematological basic clinical investigations. Department also has a Research Lab and is actively involved in Research.

Student Seminars are conducted every alternate week wherein each student gets an opportunity to present at least once. This helps a student to develop oral presentation skills and overcome the fear of public speaking apart from learning the subject. Tests & Viva are regularly held after Lectures on each topic is completed thus helping the student to systematically cover all the portions in the stipulated time. Academic non performers are identified early in the course and mentoring is done by faculty to guide them in their studies. A national level Post Graduate quiz was held in November 2013 at the Annual National Conference of Physiologists & Pharmacologists Association. South India Level Physiology Quiz “Uttunga” was conducted for under Graduates on 4th April 2014 with participation of 114 teams from various medical colleges across south India.
