Graduate Medical Physiology (GMP) is a two-semester course sequence intended to provide a thorough introduction to human systems physiology at the level of first-year medical school. The course provides students with an understanding of the function, regulation and integration of human body organ systems, with emphasis on homeostatic maintenance in health as well as in some disease processes.

Graduate Medical Physiology I

GMP I covers whole-body fluid homeostasis, cell and membrane physiology, muscle biology, and cardiovascular physiology. This course is primarily lecture based, but also includes problem-solving, group discussion, and online presentations.

Graduate Medical Physiology II

GMP II covers respiratory, renal, acid–base, blood, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and reproductive physiology. This course is primarily lecture based, but also includes problem-solving, group discussion, and online presentations.
