None required - recommend Graduate Neuroscience (GMS 6020)
This course will serve as an introduction into human physiology and pharmacology, emphasizing systemic function. The course is not restricted to majors, and is not repeatable.
A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.
This course is designed to teach basic systems Physiology and Pharmacology, integrating fundamental information about normal function with the basic mechanisms of therapeutics used to correct (overcome) dysfunctions. Currently, no graduate level systems
B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?
This course will be required for all Physiology and Pharmacology graduate students in the Spring semester of their first year. In addition, this course will be accessible to all COM graduate students, College of Public Health, Nursing, Arts and Sciences, and Engineering graduate students, Cancer Biology graduate students, as well as advanced undergraduates from all Colleges.
C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?
D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)
All instructors have M.D. and/or Ph.D. degrees in a biomedical science.
- Other Course Information
This course will provide an introduction into human physiology and pharmacology, with an emphasis on systemic function. The course is designed to integrate fundamental information about normal function with the basic mechanisms of therapeutics used to correct (overcome) dysfunctions.
