About the Course
While anatomy teaches you what’s in the body, physiology tells us how the body works. Physiology is highly important because it is the basement upon which we construct our understanding of what “”life”” is, how to treat disease, and how to deal with stress imposed by the environment upon our body. A deep insight into the normal biological function provides the basis for understanding the abnormal function seen in diseases.
This course on human physiology extensively covers general physiology along with the functional aspects of various systems in the body such as, nervous system, renal system, gastrointestinal system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, special senses, integumentary system, muscle and nerve, haematophysiology, endocrine system, reproductive system, fetal and neonatal physiology etc.

Course Delivery Format
This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams. While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.
While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget
