Physiology

Presentation

The Physiology Unit participates in the teaching in different Bachelors, Masters and Doctorate Courses. Regarding the Bachelor level, the Unit teach the contents of Physiology in the Bachelors of Medicine (Medical Physiology I and II), Biomedical Engineering (Structure and Function of Nervous, Endocrine, Digestive and Immune systems; Structure and Function of Circulatory, Respiratory, Renal and Locomotive systems), Nursing (Physiology) and Biomedical Sciences.

It also participates in some electives (Professionalism; Channelopaties; Biomedical Discoveries). The Unit collaborate in Masters, specially the Master of Neurosciences, the Master of Biomedicina and the Master of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Nutrition, Chronic Illnesses and Healthy Aging, as well as, in different courses of the Doctorate Program of Biomedicine of the University of Barcelona Graduate School.
