MD in Physiology at Sharda University is a three-year postgraduate programme that covers concepts related to human anatomy and physiology. During the programme, students gain knowledge of standard human disease processes and other allied-health subjects. The programme aims to develop an understanding of the function and structure of the critical systems of the human body and to increase the fundamental knowledge in areas of molecular biology, biostatistics, and biochemistry among students.

The curriculum of the programme is designed in such a way that it trains students for a successful career in the medical sciences by exploring the interrelationships of tissues, cells, and sub-cellular components. The course also includes some laboratory components like dissection, anatomical studies using microscopy, and the study of physiological concepts through experimentation. Some of the topics covered in the curriculum are the study of basic biochemistry,   cells and tissues, anatomical terminologies, muscular, skeletal, nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, urinary, immune, digestive, respiratory, and reproductive systems.

    “Work as a team”, “Always strive to do better”, “Try try till you succeed”and “VASUDEV KUTUMBHKAM” have been the mottos that have been inculcated in us since day one at SMS &R. Being in campus, I have been part of variety of co-curricular activities ranging from annual fest “CHORUS” to CME programmes which have just helped me and everybody around to grow and learn for the further life. From the brilliant academic support provided to us by the faculty to the never ending lists of platforms we get to showcase our talent.

    Pursuing my postgraduate (MD) from Sharda University has been a great experience. The medical school and the hospital are both beautifully constructed and adept for providing the rigorous training that this course demands. The regularly held seminars, presentations, CMEs and conferences have led us to be exposed to the upcoming trends and new technologies in use today. We are taught not only the theoretical aspect but also encouraged for practical skill development and skill diversification here.

    I can honestly say that joining SMSR was the best decision I've ever made. Along with the excellent infrastructure, our teachers, who are also our personal mentors, have moulded us in the best possible way to be excellent doctors. Being in campus, I have also been a part of Kartavya, an NGO in the university, where we teach the underprivileged children. It has truly been an experience that has made me grow as an individual.

    SMSR did not only help me excel academically to persue my dream to become a doctor but also gave me a platform to showcase my skills and talents. We were not only blessed with an excellent and experienced faculty but also with an environment and crowd where we found our companions and friends who became family in no time. I am extremely grateful for this journey as I get out as a doctor and a confident individual ready to conquer the challenges ahead and make a difference in the society.

    The journey of a medical undergraduate is really grueling and cannot be walked alone. At SMSR I found like-minded and sincere companions who made the journey easy, and I was shepherded by excellent teachers who were my guiding lights. The path itself was peppered with numerous opportunities -both academic and extra-curricular, waiting to be seized. Countless CMEs, conventions and competitions helped me realize my talents which even I didn't even know that I possessed. All these activities along with an amazing campus made the whole experience indelible as well as incredibly rewarding for me.
