The general objective of the Physiology curriculum has been defined in this part of the preliminary plan as follows: Medical students who acquire a sound knowledge of physiology will be in a position to confront, in practice and research, the two central corners of the health sciences:
• The understanding & maintenance of health
• The understanding of the mechanism of disease when physiology is deranged
Physiological studies and good knowledge of physiology have illuminated many aspects of health as well as mechanisms of disease processes which are a pillar in determining treatment modalities. Therefore, the relationship between medicine and physiology has important implications for the former.
The course of Physiology includes the following:
• Lecturing program
• Teacher centered tutorials
• Student centered seminars
• Visual materials: transparencies, slides
• Practical classes
The objectives of the physiology course are categorized as ultimate and terminal ones. The ultimate objectives are to be fulfilled by the end of the course, while terminal objectives are those connected with various parts of the course.
