  • HISTORY
    The department of physiology like the departments of Biochemistry and Human Anatomy were established in 2007 but officially had the mandate from National Universities Commission to float the three departments in 2009.

    The department started with the first batch of students (50 in number) in March, 2010. Prof. (Mrs.) Regina I. A. Ega was named the first Head of department of physiology in March 31st, 2010 By 2011/2012 sesseion Dr Nku, Clement took over as the second HOD. In 2012/2013, Dr (Mrs) Obembe,A.O. took over the mantle of leadership. In the current session 2013/2014, Prof. E.E Osim was named the forth Head of Department . The department for now has four professors(one on sabbatical and three on adjunt) , three senior lecturers, one lecturer 1, one lecturer II, (with Ph.D in view), 2 assistant Lecturers(with Ph.D in view) and 1 Technologist.

    Standard equipments are available in the department good enough for teaching and learning

    The department just successfully graduated her first batch of students precisely in March 28th 2014. Currently, there are about one hundred and ninety undergraduate students in the department.

    PHILOSOPHY
    The philosophy of the undergraduate physiology programme is to train students in theoretical, practical and applied physiology to make such graduates suitable to utilize the basic knowledge for future problem solving and other applications like practice of medicine,nursing, pharmacy,,physiotherapy etc.the graduates should be able to function as entrepreneur whether in public service or self employed.

    OBJECTIVE
    i).To train students to acquire basic knowledge of physiological principles.
    ii).to train students to acquire sufficient practical knowledge and practical skills in experimental Physiology.
    iii).To train students to have knowledge of applied physiology as used in medicine, pharmacy, nursing, veterinary medicine and sciences.
    iv).To train students who will be able to apply physiology knowledge to life situations.
    v).To train students in physiological knowledge sufficient for them to proceed for further studies in related fields of specialization.
    vi)To train students who can adapt themselves after schooling to various life situations including entrepreneurship.
  • REQUREMENT FOR B.SC. DEGREE.
    The entry qualification for the four year B.Sc. degree programme are as follows: West African Senior School Certificate, G.C.E., NECO and NABTEB with credits in the following subjects: English Language, Mathematics. Biology, Physics and Chemistry.

    REQUIREMENT FOR STUDENT STATUS
    Admission into the University and into the faculty of basic medical sciences is offered subject to passing JAMB and meeting the Cross River University of Technology screening/aptitude test.such successful candidates are required to pay an acceptance fee on resumption into the CRUTECH micro finance bank.

    CHECKING OF CREDENCIALS(SCREENING)
    On resumption, students are screened at the faculty level to ascertain their entry qualification into the programme after which they are required to pay their fee into any of the University approved banks. Apart from the faculty screening, successful students are later presented before the CVC (certificate Verification Committee) for their second screening. Screened students whose status have been confirmed may now matriculate and issued matric. Numbers.
