Membrane & Endocrine Physiology

Graduate Education
Anatomy, Physiology & Genetics
2 Quarter Hours
Course Description: 

This course is made up of selected lectures from Introduction to Structure and Function and Physiology II, which are taught to the medical students by the Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Genetics. Instructors are drawn from the Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Genetics and Neurology Departments as well as from outside sources. The course begins in September with basic topics of membrane transport and electrical properties of the cell. It ends late in May with neuroendocrine physiology. Since the course bridges several quarters, you will receive incomplete grades for part of your registration. You will, however, receive feedback as to how you are progressing in the course along the way. A final grade, encompassing the entire course, will be assigned in May and the incompletes will be removed at that time.
