Mission To teach and apply physiology concepts required in future clinical practice of doctors in rural and urban areas of Nigeria and any other part of the world.

To teach and give the students a scientific foundation for continued study and research in physiology so as to produce specialists in physiology.

To develop in the students the ability to interpret data using statistical inference and the formulation of logical conditions from such data either for diagnostic clinical purpose or unearthing such new concepts that can improve total health care delivery or expand the horizon of physiology as a discipline.
Description PHYSIOLOGY: Is the study of normal functions in organisms. The bedrock of medical practice is human physiology, hence a sound knowledge of normal function is a sine qua non for the detection of derangement that causes morbidity and mortality. There is at present a dearth qualified Basic Medical Science teachers in most medical schools in Nigeria. The programme offers courses of study leading to the awards of B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. respectively. The philosophy behind B.Sc., Physiology therefore emphasizes the need for greater depth of knowledge in order to produce graduate who will take up careers in physiology.

Physiologist: Career Profile, Employment Outlook, and Educational Requirements
Physiology is a branch of science that deals with the biological processes of functions in living organisms. Physiologists may work in many different industries and medical disciplines, such as nursing, pathology and pharmacology.
What Would I Do as a Physiologist?
As a physiologist, your tasks would be determined by the particular field you work in, the types of subjects you study and whether you specialize in a specific life function. As a plant physiologist, you'll study functional aspects of plant life, such as growth, development and photosynthesis. If study human functionality, you could explore reproduction, movement and circulation as well as the effects diseased cells have on these functions. The research findings might be used for a variety of purposes, including pharmaceutical development, disease identification and agricultural treatments. In addition to conducting research, you could also serve in other capacities, such as an educator, consultant or healthcare professional.
What Is the Job Outlook?
