Medical Education

Medical Education (M.D.)

Cell Biology & Physiology faculty oversee the Cell and Organ Systems (Medical Physiology) course designed to provide first-year medical students with a foundation for their further study of clinical and applied physiology.  Opportunities for summer research are available in the department.  MD/PhD students often find research in cell biology or physiology a good way to integrate basic research and clinical medicine.  This course applies the fundamental physiological mechanisms of cell biology to the functions of the major organ systems of the body, namely, the cardiovascular, renal, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems.
