Department of Physiology

With the simplest phrase Physiology is the "science of life". Physiology examines the functions of living organisms at all levels. This means that as well as reviewing and looking at the body as a whole, in order to understand the functions of whole organism physiology also studying organ systems, organs, tissues, cells, and even refers to the molecules separately.

Physiology is the mother of many biological sciences like biophysics, biochemistry, neurological sciences and pharmacology. Physiology not only uses knowledge gethered from all these biological sciences but also uses information presented by morphological sciences like anatomy and histology. And by combining all these knowledge with it’s own contributions to the science physiology defines functional significanses. Therefore, physiology stays at the top of the basic sciences. Physiology also provides a foundation to the clinical sciences.

Medicine is the study of “physiology gone wrong”. To identify any disease, we should show what is gone beyond the “norman ranges” wherein the body. "Normal range" is determined by the values defined by physiology and the fact that it is called as "physiological limits".

If we need to give a simple example;

Knowing the fasting blood glucose level; for this example we can consider it as 134 mg / dl; does not mean anything by itself, but if the physiological limits for this parameter is known to which is 60-90 mg / dl, measurement becomes meaningful.

Our department offers training in human physiology to Phase I and II students in a total of 194 hours of theoretical lectures and 37 hours of its practical applications in medicine which will provide them a strong basis for their future medical experiences.
