IBSc Physiology (UCL Medical Students Only)
Physiology is essential to understand how we survive
and adapt to a vast array of different conditions and environments.
Pregnancy, high altitude, deep sea diving, trekking across a desert,
exercise or even making the transition from life in the womb to life
outside all require major changes to our physiological state. Medicine
requires an in depth understanding of physiology to understand the
causes and effects of different disease processes.
The Physiology IBSc Programme is designed to provide a strong basic training in the cellular and systems physiology. Teaching is research-led and students will supplement their studies by reading original research papers and reviews published in the scientific literature. All students must undertake a laboratory or library research project in physiology.
