Program Description:

The program provides students with both a broad knowledge of physiology and neuroscience as well as concentrated experience in one specific area of specialization. The department offers a variety of graduate courses including human physiology, membrane transport, intercellular communication, ion channels, and human neurophysiology, as well as seminar and special topics courses. While the department does not offer a Ph.D. in physiology and neuroscience, a continuation of graduate  studies with our faculty-by students from this or any other graduate program-may lead to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Degree in Biomedical Sciences.
