About the Branch:
Branch of physiology and medical physics was established at the beginning of the academic year 2003-2004 with the acceptance of the first batch of students in the college.
The first task of the department was teaching medical physics to the first stage in the academic year 2003-2004 followed by the addition of medical physiology for the second stage in the next year. The department includes two laboratories; one for medical physics where experiments related to physical phenomena are achieved and the other laboratory is for medical physiology where practical training in studying human body functions is achieved for the second stage students like EMG, Spirometer, ECG, EEG and Sonar addition to the equipments of hematology, body fluid test, blood pressure, eye tests and ear tests. The department seeks to develop the staff through participating in specialized courses in radiation protection as an example in addition to symposium for community awareness.
The Branch contribute in community serve through scientific research in medical physics and physiology by studying physical phenomena used in modern technology which has direct effect on the health of individual and community, like cell phones and equipments used in diagnosis and therapy that emit ionizing radiation in addition to laser and sonar. Also the department has an active contribution in supporting research projects for the students through the cooperation with the other departments in college and teaching hospitals in addition to the cooperation with the college of physical education by conducting medical examinations needed to enrich their researches using the equipments found in our laboratories.
Objectives, Vision & Message:
The objectives of physiology and medical physics department is to get the best output through comprehensive annual plans for teaching, research and scientific activities by following these main applications:
Continuous development in medical physiology and medical physics teaching for the students of medicine in order to form a solid scientific basis for the future clinical and scientific skills through the application of various academic and practical mode.
