An MD in Physiology is a three years specialization course that provides training in the stream of Physiology.
The course content for MD in Physiology is given in the Competency-Based Postgraduate Training Programme released by National Medical Commission, which can be assessed in the link given below:
Paper-I: General and Cellular Physiology including Genetic Basis and Historical perspectives:
1. Physiology of cell, various cellular mechanisms and genetic control mechanisms.
2. Various principles of Physics and Physical Chemistry involved in physiological phenomenon e.g. haemo-dynamics, bio-electrical potentials, body fluids, methods of measurements.
3. History of Physiology.
4. Biostatistics, Biophysics, Biochemistry, Micro-anatomy.
5. Growth and Development including aging.
6. Excretion, pH, water and Electrolyte balance.
Paper-II: Systemic Physiology (system providing transport, nutrition and energy) including comparative Physiology.
1. Blood and Immunity.
2. Cardiovascular System.
3. Respiratory System.
4. Gastro- Intestinal Tract (GIT) and dietary requirements.
Paper-III: Systemic Physiology (system concerned with procreation, regulation and neural control)
1. Nerve-Muscle Physiology including muscle mechanics
2. Endocrine Physiology
3. Nervous System (Central, peripheral and autonomic)
4. Special Senses
5. Reproduction & family planning/foetal & neonatal Physiology
Paper-IV: Applied Physiology including recent advances
1. Patho-physiology pertaining to systemic Physiology
2. Physiological basis of various clinical investigation tests
3. Interaction of human body in ambient environment- high altitude, space and deep sea
4. Sports physiology
5. Yoga and Meditation
6. Recent advances relevant to Physiology
7. Social responsibilities of physiologists
It is to be mandatory for the department to establish and develop the following laboratories. In addition to teaching, these laboratories should be involved in active research and in patient care services in one or more well defined fields.
1. Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory
The department should generate liaison with clinical department and provide routine services for health monitoring and diagnostics (disease).
(ii) Evoked potential recording
(iv) Nerve conduction studies
(v) Autonomic nervous system (ANS) testing
(vi) Any other newer technology
2. Cardio-Respiratory Laboratory
The department should generate liaison with clinical department and provide routine services for health monitoring and diagnostics (disease).
(ii) Blood-gas Analysis
(iii) Computerized multifunctional spirometery
(iv) Laboratory for measuring pulmonary diffusion capacity and functional residual capacity (FRC)
(v) Whole-body plethysmography
(vi) Laboratory for Blood flow measurements (Impedence plethysmograph/Laser flow meter/ Doppler flow meter)
3. Exercise Physiology Laboratory
The department should generate liaison with ports authorities and clinical departments to provide services for testing and grading exercise and physical efficiency for health monitoring and diagnostics (disease). This should be done by using the following techniques:
(i) Two step test exerciser
(ii) Bicycle Ergometery
(iii) Tread mill
(iv) Respiratory gas analysis and measurement of basal metabolic rate (BMR)
4. Metabolic/Endocrinology/Reproductive Bio-medicine laboratory
This laboratory should perform various tests pertaining to gastrointestinal, renal, metabolic, endocrinal and reproductive bio-medicine. The department should generate liaison with clinical departments and provide routine services for health monitoring and diagnostics (disease).
(ii) pH meter
(iii) Elisa Reader/Washer
Postgraduate students should be posted in the above laboratories and extend the required services on a routine basis.
The Department should be equipped with general facilities like a PG resource room with internet access and a departmental library with books especially those related to pertinent higher studies in Physiology and field of research. The college/department should make important journals available (at least four Indian journals and two international journals).
After completing an MD in Physiology, candidates will get employment opportunities in Government as well as in the Private sector.
In the Government sector, candidates have various options to choose from which include Registrar, Senior Resident, Demonstrator, Tutor, etc.
While in the Private sector the options include Resident Doctor, Consultant, Visiting Consultant (Physiology), Junior Consultant, Senior Consultant (Physiology), Consultant Physiology Specialist, etc.
Courses After MD in Physiology Course
MD in Physiology is a specialization course that can be pursued after finishing MBBS. After pursuing a specialization in MD (Physiology), a candidate could also pursue super specialization courses recognized by NMC, MD (Physiology) is a feeder qualification.
