M. Sc Medical Physiology is a three-year post-graduate programme focused on equipping students with an in-depth knowledge of human anatomy, physiology and biochemistry. The programme exposes students to studies involving many organism functions. This not only stimulates thoughts regarding therapeutic and health-promoting opportunities but also encourages thoughts to experiment with modification of one function to bring changes in other functions.
The objective of the programme is to help students master the core information in cell biology, molecular biology, and statistics. The programme is structured in such a way that it enables not only academic and clinical proficiency, but also fosters the rational, intellectual, and social ability of the aspirants.
Program Educational Objectives (PEO)
A post graduate student having qualified the MSc(Medical Physiology) examination should be able to:
- PEO1. demonstrate comprehensive understanding of physiology as well as that of the applied disciplines.
- PEO2. demonstrate adequate knowledge of the current developments in medical sciences as related to physiology .
- PEO3. teach undergraduates and postgraduates in physiology
- PEO4. plan and conduct research Interpret and evaluate research publications critically.
- PEO5 plan educational programs in physiology utilizing modern methods of teaching and evaluation
- PEO6.organize and equip physiology laboratories.
