Medical Students

The faculty in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics are actively involved in teaching medical students.

The Medical Physiology course provides coverage of fundamental aspects of human physiology and thereby is a vital part of the curriculum for first-year medical students. Medical Physiology sets the stage for understanding pathology and pharmacology and provides the framework that will be used in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

Students have selected Medical Physiology for the “Best Basic Science Course Award” nine out of the past 10 years. Members of our department have been selected by the students for numerous individual teaching awards.
