Stage I courses
While courses in Physiology are not offered explicitly at Stage I, the Department of Physiology makes a major contribution to introductory courses at this level. Students wishing to pursue a degree in Physiology are strongly advised to complete the following
Stage I courses:
- BIOSCI 106 Foundations of Biochemistry
- BIOSCI 107 Biology for Biomedical Science: Cellular Processes and Development
- CHEM 110 Chemistry of the Living World
- MEDSCI 142 Biology for Biomedical Science: Organ Systems
- PHYSICS 160 Physics for the Life Sciences
Of the above, BIOSCI 107 and MEDSCI 142 are prerequisites for Stage II Physiology courses. The other courses will facilitate further study in Physiology (as well as other biomedical sciences) and the prospective student should also have competency in high school mathematics. If this is not the case, taking an appropriate Mathematics course is highly advisable.
