Upon the establishment of the College of Medicine, and because of the limited number of teaching faculty available, the Department of Physiology and Biophysics were merged in to a single department. Back then, it consisted of the department head, who was an Iraqi nationality, together with five other lecturers, in which two of them were international.
in 1984, the department of physiology was formed, consisting of four Iraqi lecturers with PHD degrees and another four lecturers with M.Sc. degrees.
