About Department
Synopsis Of Medical Physiology Department
The aims of this course are to enable students to:

* Acquire an appropriate functional background of cells, tissues, organs & systems.
Integrate physiological data & mechanisms with the ongoing taught sciences: anatomy, histology & biochemistry.
* Follow the rapidly changing and inflating details about molecular biology & genetics.
* Explore in detail the functions of the autonomic, the neuromuscular, the respiratory and the cardiovascular systems as well as their integration to achieve homeostasis (1st year course).
* Explore in details the functions of the endocrinal, the reproductive the nervous, the renal & the digestive systems as well as their integration to achieve homeostasis (2nd year course).
* To develop the basic scientific research skills as well as effective communication and team work attitudes.

Intended learning outcomes:
1 Knowledge and Understanding:
By the end of the course, students should be able to:

* Describe the cellular functions at the organelle and molecular level.
* Describe & explain the functions of the different body systems, at the system and at the molecular levels.
* To describe some biophysical laws and their relation to physiology
* To present physiological scientific data in a graphical form.
2 Practical Skills:
* By the end of the course, 1st year students should be able to:

 1.Perform some hematological tests: estimation of blood Hb, bleeding & clotting times, determination of the hematocrite value, the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and blood groups .
2. Perform some respiratory function tests.
3. Perform the measurement of the arterial blood pressure.
4. Manipulate a stethoscope for hearing heart and respiratory sounds.
5. Record and read an electrocardiogram.
* By the end of the course, 2nd year students should be able to:
1.Perform a systematic examination of the nervous system: types of sensations, motor system, tendons jerks and muscle tone.
2. Perform some visual tests: corneal, light and accommodation reflexes, visual acuity, color vision and visual field defects.
3. Perform a preliminary examination of some common endocrinal conditions: acromegaly, dwarfism and a thyroid disease (hypo or hyper).
4. Integrate physiology with other sciences studied during this year.
3. General Skills and Attitudes:
*By the end of the course, students should be able to:

1. Identify the essential ethical issues involved in scientific research.
2. Work separately or in a team to research and prepare a scientific topic.
3. Use available presentation aids (e.g. Overhead Projectors or Data Show) to present clearly and effectively a scientific topic in a tutorial, a staff meeting or the yearly scientific day.
