A one year course consisting of lectures on the normal functions of the parts of the human body with emphasis on principle that physiological events and processes are expressions of underlying functional organizations and integration whether viewed at the level of macromolecular interaction or at the level of multi-organ systems. An adequate knowledge of anatomy is helpful but not necessarily a per-requisite. Laboratory experiments demonstrate this principle and include studies on isolated organs and tissues as well as experiments in cardiovascular , respiratory, digestive and urinary physiology. The students are, likewise, required to do project studies based on the different problems of physiology which they encounter as they go along the learning process.
