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.
