Physiology is the study of life and how living cells and tissues function, enabling organisms to live and interact with their environment. Physiologists answer key questions ranging from the workings inside single cells to the interactions between human populations and our environment on earth and beyond.

The 2009 Accreditation Site Survey for the MD program confirmed that Physiology courses received the highest ranking from medical school graduates for their perception of importance in preparation for medical school.

A B.Sc. degree in Physiology & Pharmacology provides the strongest possible scientific basis for further training in biomedical research medicine and in a variety of health care fields. Students will develop practical and critical thinking skills necessary to analyze and integrate the ever-growing amount of information in the health sciences.
