Department of Physiology

 Stanley Medical College was established at 1938, after British Parliamentarian, Sir George Frederick Stanley. Physiology Department started its functioning at the same time.
  Department Merits
Teaching and Research are the two important achievements and merits of this department. A complete and thorough teaching schedule is followed by our departmental teachers who are qualified and eminent. Students Quiz programme is the favourite task of this department. Students of this department (both UG & PG ) have won fabulous prizes in Intermedical Quiz Programmes.Every year an Intramural Quiz Competition is organized by this Department conducted by the second year students for the first year students. Research activities are carried out in a full fledged manner by the  faculty and Postgraduates of our department. Number of research papers have been presented in various conferences. A number of papers have been published in Regional , National & International  journals.
