Introduction

This master's degree, which is taught as a blended learning course, is aimed at broadening the students' knowledge of the latest aspects of physiology research. It focuses in particular on the most innovative and applied aspects of the discipline, including the physiology of exercise, altitude and hypoxia, the latest advances in the understanding of oxidative stress and free radicals, and molecular and cellular physiology.

An agreement has been signed to teach a double degree, with a specialization in Applied Physiology from the master's degree in Biomedical Sciences at Antofagasta University in Chile.

Integrative Physiology has received the distinction 'International Master's Programme' (IMP) from the Government of Catalonia's Agency for the Administration of University and Research Grants (AGAUR) (2013 IMP 00019).

Learning objectives

Physiology research is important in many branches of knowledge. The discipline has more specialized indexed journals than many other areas of science, and many Nobel Laureates have been awarded the distinction in recognition of their work in physiology.
The master's degree in Integrative Physiology, which is taught as a blended learning course, looks in detail at current aspects of research in the discipline. In particular, it focuses on the most innovative applied aspects, including the physiology of exercise, altitude and hypoxia, the latest advances in the understanding of oxidative stress and free radicals, and molecular and cellular physiology. It also encompasses a range of more general subjects that address advances in endocrinology, neurophysiology and reproductive physiology.
The objective of the master's degree is to train researchers in physiology who can undertake research in public and private centres. In addition, it provides the preparation to carry out physiology research at doctoral level.
