History

The Department of Physics came into existence when University of  Medicine, Taunggyi became established in October 3, 2015.   The department is situated in the right wing on the third floor of main building. The first Head of Physics Department is Daw Me Me Cho, Lecturer.  The Department of  Physics was composed of  one Lecturer/Head of the Department, one Lecturer , three Assistant Lecturers  and  five newly appointed demonstrators  in  2015.  The department of physics offers theory and practical courses to the first M.B.,B.S students.
