Formal laboratory sessions are offered with additional laboratory work incorporated into the core units.

Outcomes
  • Students will be able to identify and understand the underlying principles shared by physiological systems, at the molecular, cellular, and systems levels and relate these principles to the physical and thermodynamic laws that influence organismal design.
  • Students will be able to recognize the diversity of physiological systems and understand the interactions of these systems with anatomical structure.
  • Students will be able to utilize critical thinking and analytical skills when addressing physiological issues to understand organisms' adaptations to their environments.
