For several decades (1918-1961) Anatomy, Physiology and other disciplines were in structure of educational process of the Department of Zoology where the study of Anatomy and Physiology was organized.


In 1961 the new Department of Anatomy and Human and Animal Physiology as independent structural division of Natural-Geographical Department was formed. In 1962-1969, the head of this Department was Candidate of Medical Science, Associate Professor D.D. Shelepa.

In connection with reorganization of the Teacher's Institute into the University in 1971, there were appreciable changes in the activity of the Department. The head of the Department of Anatomy and Human and Animal Physiology became the Doctor of Medical Science, Professor V.A. Tkachuk.

At the end of 1960s – in the beginning of 1970s Professor V.V. Pavlov, Doctor of Medical Science V.I. Elkin, Doctor of Medical Science A.M. Efimenko, Associate Professors A.G. Solovykh, V.N. Konovalchuk, assistants N.A. Temuriants, V.G. Sidyakin, V.V. Baranov, L.N. Treshcheva, V.S. Demesheva worked at the Department.

In 1973 Professor A.M. Stashkov, Dr.Sci.Biol., began to work who supervised over the Department from 1975 to 1991. In 1974-1975 educational laboratories of anatomy, histology, physiology, biology of individual development, biophysics, small and big practical works, etc. were organized.

In view of prospects of development of the Department the measures were taken to prepare young lecturers with scientific degrees through postgraduate study on the basis of leading institutes and high schools of the country. Most promising graduates finished postgraduate study and defended master's theses: V.G. Sidyakin, S.A. Panova, I.I. Korenyuk, L.D. Lesova, V.V. Baranov, S.I. Bazhenov. Theses for doctor's degree defended: N.A. Temuriants, I.I. Korenyuk, V.G. Sidyakin. In 2004, Ye.N. Chuyan and V.B. Pavlenko defended theses for a doctor's degree.

For the period of 2003-2005 eight theses for a candidate’s degree and two for a doctor's degree were defended by the employees of the Department. From 1991 to 2005 the Head of the Department was Professor V.G. Sidyakin, Dr.Sci.Biol., Academician of the International Academy of Science. Since 2005 Professor Ye.N. Chuyan, Dr.Sci.Biol., has been the Head of the Department In 2007 the Center of Correction of Human Functional State was opened. Among the chief aims of the Center are scientific, research, educational and health-improving activities on diagnostcs and correction of human functional state. At present there are 4 Doctors of Biological Science, Professors (Ye.N. Chuyan, N.N. Temuriants, I.I. Korenyuk, V.B. Pavlenko), 10 Candidates of Science, among them 4 Associate Professors (S.A. Panova, V.M. Yefimova, A.V. Kirillova, A.V. Yantsev), 3 senior teachers, Candidates of Biological Science (D.R. Khusainov, E.R. Jeldubaeva, T. V. Gamma).




The Department of Human and Animal Physiology and Biophysics prepares specialists – biologists, specializing on human and animal physiology, of the following qualifying levels: Bachelor (4 years), Specialist (5 years), Master (5 years).

In 2007 a speciality "Medical Biophysics" was opened. Those who have basic medical education are admitted to the entrance examination. The study is conducted by accelerated program (Bachelors - for 3 years, Specialist, Masters - for 1 year).
