The Physiology program is committed to providing comprehensive research training and educational experiences so that students can pursue their career goals and passions for biomedical and health-related research.

A graduate degree in Physiology provides the necessary breadth and focus to afford students with opportunities for varied careers in academia, industry, and other 21st century biomedical health professions. Better preparing students for emerging careers in the biotech industry is a major goal of our NIH-funded predoctoral training program. A necessary component to career planning is completion of yearly Individual Development Plans (see below).

Individual Development Plans (IDPs)

Students are required to complete yearly IDPs starting during the second year of degree matriculation. Results will be periodically reviewed with individual advisors and the program chair to helps students attain reasonable goals. To learn more, click here.
