The Department of Physiology inaugurated its pathway from the former Sylhet Government Veterinary College (SGVC) in 1996 as a former department named Department of Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology. On the transformation of SGVC into Sylhet Agricultural University (SAU) in 2006, the former Department of Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology was enrolled under the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Science of SAU. In 2008, Department of Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology divided into two departments one is named Department of Physiology and Pharmacology and another is named as Department of Biochemistry and Chemistry. Since January 2013, the Department of Physiology has been rising independently. Currently the Department of Physiology offers seven (07) courses in the Faculty of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences (FVABS) and two (02) courses in the Faculty of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (FBGE) for undergraduate study. The department offers mostly basic courses for the respected degree and provides a good academic environment for gaining both theoretical and practical knowledge. This department also offers a lot of dynamic courses for postgraduate studies like MS and PhD degree. At present, this department has two well-equipped laboratories: one for undergraduate and another for postgraduate students.

The aims of the department are to provide skillful learning and practice along with need-based research for the welfare of livestock and zoo animals. We have such dynamic vision and mission. Our vision is to be the ideal multidimensional department in the FVABS, SAU through academic learning as well as research activities. Simultaneously, our mission is to enrich the learners with the harmonize teaching of basic, preclinical as well as paraclinical knowledge of Veterinary Physiology and to offer problem-based research of higher studies on livestock agriculture and zoo animals for the wellbeing of the developing country like Bangladesh. We will reach this limelight through nurturing the education of astral students and by contributing to the bottom of preclinical and paraclinical research activities for being professional Veterinarians. If you are obsessive in any kind of mutual works through learning, research and extension, we would like to appreciate your cordial attention.
