Physiology is concerned with the regulation and maintenance of individual cells and their interrelations with each other in tissues, organs, organ systems, and the entire living organism. Its objective is to understand the integration of cellular and membrane physical-chemical processes into cell functions and, in turn, their integration to perform new functions in more complex assemblies of cells.
Intermediate and advanced graduate courses in physiology are open to medical students as Elective Opportunities. Please consult the physiology faculty or the Graduate School catalog for further information.
