Program Overview

Medical Physiology (MS) Program Overview

Physiology is the study of the function and activity in living organisms at all levels. While molecular mechanisms at cellular level provide the basics of physiology, integration of these mechanisms at organ and system level provides the full understanding of the logic of life. Master of Science program in Medical Physiology aims at providing a broad perspective in Life Sciences for those holding a BS or MS degree in Basic Sciences, Engineering or Medical Sciences and planning to obtain a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Physiology or related fields (e.g., Biophysics, Neuroscience, Biomedical engineering, etc.). The program is designed also to serve as an interface for graduates of basic sciences (e.g., physics, chemistry, mathematics) and engineering disciplines who are planning careers on biomedical applications and medical technologies. The graduate program will be personally designed for each student based on their prior education, background and interest and will also provide extensive research experience. Medical Physiology Master of Science Program requires 7 courses totaling 21 credits, 1 seminar and a Thesis based on original, independent research.
