Lecturer and Head

1.Brief  History of the Department

The Department of physics was formed in 1963, when University of Medicine (2) was inaugurate. Under supervisions of sequence Professors, Department of Physics, University of Rangoon, the department was run by an Assistant Lecture as Head of the Department and four part-time Demonstrators. A two-year Physics course of Basic Science was introduced for 50 first year medical students.

In 1964 according to the reorganization an Assistant Lecturer and two Demonstrators were permanently posted to the Department.

In 1971 the first M.B.,B.S became a one and half-year course and intake students were increased to about hundred.

In 1992 the organization of Department was seven teaching staffs with one Lecturer and Head, two Assistant Lecturers and four Demonstrators. The teaching course has condensed to one year.

In 2000 the organization of the Department was promoted to 30 staffs with one Lecturer and Head of the department, three Lecturers, seven Assistant Lecturers, fifteen Demonstrators and five laboratory staffs. The first year medical students have increased to 500.

In 2010 the organization of the Department was promoted to 37 staffs with one Lecturer and Head of the department, three Lecturers, eight Assistant Lecturers, eighteen Demonstrators and seven laboratory staffs. The first year medical students have increased to 550.

On 25th September 1996 the University was moved to the present campus in North Okkalapa Township, Yangon and the Department of Physics is situated at the first building, on the first floor, in right hand side.
