The Department of Physiology's goal is to train independent, creative, productive scholars in the physiological sciences. The department offers programs leading to the PhD degree. A combined MD/PhD or DMD/PhD degree program is available for students who obtain prior or concurrent admission to the Schools of Medicine or Dentistry respectively.
In all programs, extensive experience in the philosophy and performance of basic and biomedical research is stressed. By virtue of their inter-disciplinary training, the department's graduates compete successfully for positions in medical schools, universities, government and industry.
