The Physiology Graduate Program has been integrated into the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. This new interdisciplinary program provides students with the education, training, and skills that today's employers in academia, government and industry demand. All research faculty in the Department of Physiology participate in the training of graduate students in this new program.
With a curriculum featuring an interdisciplinary approach to education and research training, students learn how to perform as independent scientific investigators, exploring new pathways for learning and discovery.
Both the MS with thesis and PhD programs are scholarly endeavors requiring original research. The programs challenge students to think logically and creatively and to express themselves independently.
Students benefit from Temple's high faculty-to-student ratio. They receive outstanding mentoring from their advisors and faculty—all premier researchers with national and international reputations. Students are also given ample opportunity to explore options for independent study and research.
