“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” ----Jim Rohn
A very warm welcome to the home page of our department. The term physiology (physis, nature; logos; discourse) was used by the Greeks as a synonym for natural philosophy (phyllien, to love; sophia, wisdom). A student of nature has to be a lover of wisdom! Physiology, as we all know is the study of normal functions of body, but in recent times, the areas covered under this interesting and basic subject of Medicine has grown tremendously achieving great heights.
As far as the history of Medicine is concerned, Physiology is as old a subject as any other discipline. As the history of Medicine passes through the Golden age, The Roman Empire and Scholastic age, Physiology has grown in leaps and bounds and is still growing. In fact, even the Swedish academy acknowledges the contribution of physiology by awarding the noble prize in Physiology & Medicine.
Our department at Subharti Medical College intends to excel not only in academics but in research as well. As you will browse through our pages, you will be acquainted with the various tools, infrastructure and support facilities for the same.

“But nothing is more estimable than a physician, who having studied nature from his youth, knows the properties of the human body, the disease which assert it the remedies which will benefit it, exercise his art with caution and pays equal attention to the rich and the poor”.
