Study of Normal Man in Pre-Clinical Period

Anatomy Physiology
Human economy is the most difficult of all sciences to study. Man is a conscious mentalised, living being and functions as a whole. Human knowledge has become so vast that for precise comprehension of man, as a whole development of different branches of science like anatomy, physiology and psychology was necessary. But such a division is only an expedient; man nevertheless remains indivisible.
Consciousness, life and its phenomena cannot be explained in terms of cell physiology or of quantum mechanics nor by physiological concepts which in their turn are based on chemco – physical concepts.
Though anatomy and physiology are hitherto being taught as entirely different subjects, a water-tight barrier should not be erected between them; structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) are but correlated aspects and the physio-chemical processes are but an external expression of an inexplicable phenomenon which is life.
So anatomy and physiology shall be taught with the following aims:
(i) to provide for the understanding of the morphological, physiological and psychological principles which determine and influence the organism of the living body as a functioning unit;
(ii) to co-relate and interpret the structural organism and normal physiology of the human body and thus to provide the data on which to anticipate disturbance of functions;
(iii) to enable the student to recognise the anatomical, physiological and psychological basis of the clinical signs and symptoms of disorders due to injury, disease and maldevelopment;
(iv) Similarly, to give the student to understand the factors involved in the development of pathological processes and the possible complications which may arise there from;
(v) to give the student such knowledge of pre clinical subjects as will enable him ultimately to employ competently and rationally all the ordinary methods of examination and treatment (treatment (including surgery) that may involve such knowledge; and
(vi) for enabling the student to pick out strange, rare and uncommon symptoms for individualization of patients and drugs for the purpose of applying the law of similar in homeopathic practice.
