Department of Physiology

Basic education in physiology is organised in Finnish and Swedish for students of medicine and dentistry in their first and second year of studies in organ system–specific courses in cooperation with other disciplines. In addition, English-language basic education related to physiology is organised in connection with TRANSMED studies. The discipline of physiology also participates, in cooperation with other disciplines, in organising compulsory elective studies for students completing basic education in medicine or dentistry.

Advanced studies, particularly in the fields of neuroscience, as well as metabolism and endocrinology can be completed in research groups operating under the purview of the discipline of physiology.

No specialist education is currently organised in physiology.

Further information on specialist education can be found on the Faculty of Medicine website.

The scientific research conducted by research groups related to physiology is currently focused primarily on either neurophysiology or metabolism and endocrinology.
