The Unit of Physiology was established in 2011 together with the departments of Anatomy and Biochemistry as the earliest departments formed in the Faculty of Medicine and Defence Health of the National Defence University of Malaysia. Initially, it had only one academic staff to start the physiology course for the pioneer batch of medical students during the first semester. Currently, in the second semester, the workload is shared with the presence of a second academic staff. The department’s role is to provide a strong foundation in physiology to the students using various teaching-learning strategies such as lectures, tutorials, practicals, computer-assisted learning (CAL), problem-based learning (PBL), self learning package (SLP) and educational visits. A strong understanding of physiological concepts is a must for the students to effectively progress further into clinical years later . The application of physiology would become more apparent when students are learning the usual clinical subjects including sports medicine, trauma and life support and the various aspects of military medicine such as aerospace medicine, naval medicine and battlefield medicine. The presence of supporting infrastructures such as seminar/examination rooms, multipurpose laboratories, small group discussion rooms, clinical skills laboratory and a museum which are all well-equipped, will facilitate students to learn more effectively in a very conducive environment.
