Physiology

“The physiology of today is the medicine of tomorrow.” Is a saying by Ernest H. Starling, Physiologist (1926). Human Physiology is the branch of medicine where the students learn about the normal functioning of all the systems of the body at gross as well as the cellular level. The knowledge of physiology helps the students to learn the basis of disease processes. Hence Physiology becomes the soul of the clinical subjects.
