UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cal­en­dars | UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cat­a­log | Tech­ni­cal Require­ments

Med­ical Phys­i­ol­o­gy is one-semes­ter, 4 cred­it-hour lec­ture and lab course. In this course, learn­ers will be intro­duced to core con­cepts that shape our knowl­edge of the work­ings of the human body. Cell-cell com­mu­ni­ca­tion and mem­brane dynam­ics will first be stud­ied as cen­tral themes that gov­ern coor­di­na­tion in indi­vid­ual cells and tis­sues, and with­in and between organ sys­tems.

For more detailed infor­ma­tion about this Phys­i­ol­o­gy course, please request the PHSL 1010 syl­labus.

Course delivery

This course is deliv­ered using online stream­ing audio of lec­tures and Pow­er­Point slides along with hands-on labs, read­ings, and inter­ac­tive dis­cus­sion board activ­i­ties.
