Medical Physiology, MS (Online)
Degree: Master of Science (MS)
Field of Study: Medical Physiology
The Master's Program in Medical Physiology is fully online and designed for students with at least a bachelor's degree in a chemical, physical, or biological science who are seeking advanced training in the physiological sciences, typically in preparation for admission to a professional medical program (e.g. Medical School, Dental School). The program is flexible in duration. It can take as little as 1 year (3 semesters including summer) to complete the required 32 credit hours of course work. However, students who wish to decompress the program can take 22 months or more to complete the requirements. Core courses and flexible electives allow students to focus their work in key areas of medical physiology. Graduates of the Medical Physiology Master's Program also can pursue careers in basic and clinical research, research administration, teaching or management in academia, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, private research institutions, government science or regulatory agencies, or medicine and health care.
