Spring Semester Human Physiology is a single-semester, 4-credit-hour lecture-based course designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the function, regulation, and integration of human body organ systems. Emphasis is placed on a functional understanding of homeostatic maintenance in health as well as in disease processes. The course is suitable for graduate or professional students enrolled in any of the Medical Science Related Programs.

The course is primarily textbook-based. Course content includes cell physiology and all major organ systems. Links to other on-line textbook sources will be provided. The final grade is based primarily on the results of four exams. The course may include written assignments.
