General Information of Medical Physiology Course  

Physiology courses are given to medical students in their second year, medical physiology-I and its Lab in first semester and medical physiology-II and its Lab in second semester. However, department presents medical physiology-I and its Lab in second semester and medical physiology-II and its Lab in first semester for pharmacy students each year, which can be also taken by medical students

A- Objectives:[Top]

  1- General objective:
    Student understands how different systems of body do their functions in normal situation ,how they interrelate to each other, and how they regulate their functions at different physiological conditions.
  2- Final or ideal objective:
    Student by learning the operations of different systems of body in physiology courses and later learning of clinical courses can understand how different diseases disturb the functions of these systems and howdrugs affect them.
