Medical Physiology

Course Description

The faculty and staff of the Physiology Department welcome you to Medical Physiology 100. We hope that your efforts to learn physiology will equal our efforts to teach you this important subject. Our overall aim is to help you acquire a thorough knowledge and appreciation of the function and control of normal organs that will serve as a basis for your understanding of clinical medicine. E.H. Starling, the famous physiologist of the early 20th century, said "The physiology of today is the medicine of tomorrow." The faculty of the Physiology Department will make a serious effort to demonstrate the veracity of this statement.
