Course Description

This 5-week course examines the cellular, systems, and integrative aspects of Medical Physiology, using clinical examples throughout to illustrate fundamental physiological principals. Special attention is given to Cardiovascular, Autonomic, Body Fluids, Renal, Respiration, Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Muscular and Reproductive systems. The content and instructors of this course are essentially identical to the course given to our medical students. The faculty use lectures and workshops (no laboratory) to present the material in a highly interactive way. Special attention is given to students who have previously experienced difficulty mastering physiological concepts in preparation for their qualifying examinations and clinical rotations. The course is also appropriate for students preparing to enter medical studies or for those who wish to reiew the subject material.


Students should be well-founded in basic biology, biochemistry, and standard college mathematics. All students must obtain permission of the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics to enroll for the course. If the course is being taken to satisfy a requirement at a student’s “home” institution, a letter attesting to the applicant’s status and approving his/her enrollment must be sent by the Dean or other appropriate official of the institution. This letter is only required of those who must satisfy a requirement elsewhere.

**This course will be offered since minimum enrollment is met.**
