The visitor to the Faculty of Medicine encounters the physiology building on the left side, as soon as he enters the faculty premises from the Francis Road entrance. The department of physiology is situated in the 1st and 2nd floors of this building, and receives the cool breeze brushing tree tops, amidst the hustle and bustle of Colombo city traffic.
The department has a spacious air conditioned lecture theatre which can accommodate up to 200 students. There are two student laboratories, research laboratories, staff rooms, office area and a rest room.
The academic and non academic staff members extend their united efforts to maintain the excellent academic standards in the faculty. The staff members actively participate in all faculty and university activities and contribute to the optimum functioning of the department.
