BMS 5041: Physiology I

Class Program
Credits 4

This course is the first of two one-semester courses which together provide a complete, systems-based curriculum to enable the student to build a cognitive framework and knowledge base necessary to understand and medically apply normal human physiology and pathophysiology. Systems covered in the first semester include cellular physiology, homeostatic mechanisms, basic neuromuscular physiology, cardiovascular physiology, respiratory physiology, and renal physiology. Basic clinical skills, clinical reasoning, and physical exam skills are integrated throughout. This curriculum combines lecture with small group discussions, clinical correlations, case studies, independent study, projects, and simulation activities.
