The Master of Science (MS) in Medical Physiology Program is an online, distance learning-only program that focuses on educating students in medical physiology. The program is designed to meet the needs of several prospective student populations, including:
- students seeking undergraduate college and university, as well as junior/community college, teaching positions in physiology;
- students seeking to enhance their knowledge in physiology to improve their rank and earning potential in physiology-based, basic-science and/or clinical research laboratories; and
- students seeking to broaden and deepen their physiology knowledge base in their pursuit of medical, dental, physician assistant, pharmacy or graduate (PhD) school admission.
This 30-credit hour, non-thesis, distance learning-only MS program is designed to be completed in two consecutive academic semesters by full-time students. Part-time students will be allowed to complete the MS in Medical Physiology degree over a maximum of five consecutive years. To receive the MS degree, students are required to pass a Comprehensive Exam and maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA on the required courses.
