There has been increased awareness about choosing the field and career progress in Physiology and its related branches. In spite of the many available resources, there exists a need for proper mentoring and guidance that is required to build up a good career as a physiologist. There is a high demand for physiologists in various fields with the advances in translational research in today’s world and young academic Physiologists are stimulated to get them involved in such research activities. These research works not only bring them forward in their careers but also collective efforts from various such research projects help to improve the health conditions and overall well-being of Physiologists. There is increased opportunity both in India and abroad for the young Physiologists to obtain grants, establish laboratory and collaborate with clinicians, epidemiologists and basic scientists to perform quality research. In this review, we will summarize various subdivisions of the major field of physiology and also discuss on the research opportunities, jobs in academic, industry and other scientific fields. Ultimately, the research works and collaboration of physiologists with pharmacologists, physicians, dietitians, fitness coaches, zoologists, clinicians and academicians would hopefully provide lots of satisfaction to the successful investigators, enhanced academic environment and output of the academic institutions ultimately resulting in improvement of overall health of humanity.
