Objective: (1) Introduce the physiology of the central nervous system, urinary system, salt and water balance, endocrine system and gastrointestinal system; and (2) Gain fundamental understanding of the function of various physiological systems with focus on mechanisms and integration of function from molecule/cell to organ/body. Includes functional anatomy with reference to selected diseases and the pathophysiology. 7. Prerequisites: Knowledge equivalent to undergraduate introductory courses in biology, chemistry, and physics, or consent of Instructor. 8.
