The broad goal of the teaching of undergraduate students in Physiology aims at providing the student comprehensive knowledge of the normal functions  of the organ systems of the body to facilitate an understanding of the physiological basis of  health and disease. 

At the end of the course the student will be able to:
1. Explain the normal functioning of all the organ systems and their interactions for well coordinated total body function.
2. Assess the relative contribution of each organ system to the maintenance of the milieu interior.
3. Elucidate  the physiological aspects of normal growth and development.
4. Describe  the  physiological response and adaptations to environmental stresses.
5. List the physiological principles underlying pathogenesis and treatment of disease.

At the end of the course the student should be able to :
1. Conduct experiments designed for  study  of  physiological phenomena.
2. Interpret experimental/investigative data.
3. Distinguish between normal and abnormal data derived as a result  of tests which he/she has performed and observed in the laboratory.

At  the  end of the integrated teaching the  student should acquire an integrated knowledge of organ structure and  function and its regulatory mechanisms.
