Welcome to the Department of Physiology in the Andaman & Nicobar Islands Institute of Medical sciences, Port Blair. Our Department is devoted to research, training, and education and strives to push the boundaries of scientific discovery and academic development. The Department’s faculty, in conjunction with under graduate students and staff, use innovative tools to uncover physical and chemical mechanisms of biological processes. Our frontiers span the molecular to organ level to determine how the human body functions in health and disease. Here at ANIIMS we have an energetic and dedicated staff to guide the students in this very interesting subject of basic sciences. The Lecture theaters and all the Practical laboratories are fully air conditioned and well equipped with the modern educational technology gadgets to train the undergraduates as per the guidelines of Medical Council of India.
What is Physiology?
Physiology and Biophysics is one of the premier basic science departments. From earliest times, people have sought to understand the nature of life. We instinctively want to know how our bodies work, how we are born, how we grow and develop, and the nature of illness, what happens when we die. Physiology describes the nature of life. It is the subject that deals with the normal functioning and regulations of all the organ systems in the body. It provides the framework for studying and exploring the bases of life. Physiologists view life from the simplest to the most complex levels of organization - from the subcellular, to the whole person. Physiologists make an important contribution to areas such as heart disease, reproduction and ageing and global population control. Without the basic knowledge of Physiology, it is practically impossible to understand the subjects like Pharmacology and Medicine.
The broad goal of the teaching of undergraduate students in physiology aims at providing the student comprehensive knowledge of the normal functions of the organ systems of the body to facilitate an understanding of the physiological basis of health and diseases.
1) At the end of the course, the student will be able to: describe the normal functions of all the organ systems, their regulatory mechanisms and interactions of the various systems for well-coordinated total body function.
2) Understand the relative contribution of each organ system in the maintenance of the milieu interior (homeostasis).
3) Explain the physiological aspects of normal growth and development. Analyze the physiological responses and adaptation to environmental stresses.
4) Comprehend the physiological principles underlying pathogenesis and treatment of disease.
5) Correlate knowledge of physiology of human reproductive system in relation to National Family Welfare Program.

The department of ORTHOPAEDICS ANIIMS was started in 2015 within the Orthopaedics department of G. B. Pant hospital which had existed since 2015. The department is a referral Orthopaedicscentre for the entire A & N Islands. A process of modernization and expansion was immediately begun with the inception of the ANIIMS department. The range as well as number of surgeries were increased, a modular OT was commissioned, the ward strength was increased from 40 to 60 beds and computerization of patient records instituted. The results were soon statistically apparent. The surgeries conducted by the department of Orthopaedics increased from 286 in 2014 to 625 in 2016. The progress has continued further with spinal fixation for trauma, knee Arthroscopy and modular bipolar Arthroplasty being started. At present the department is on the verge of becoming a completely self-sufficient Orthopaedics unit with all Orthopaedics surgeries except total hip replacement, total knee replacement and shoulder Arthroscopy being performed. It is expected that these three surgeries too shall commence within 2020-2021.
The first batch of students of 2015 were posted for clinical posting in the department during their 3rd semester in July 2016 in sub batched on ration and then for the theory classes w.e.f Jan 2017 onwards in the 4th semester. These students are appearing in the university examination in November December 2019. The successful candidate will start one year compulsory rotatory internship form January 2020. The department is in a position to start post graduate courses in Orthopedics.
