The Department of Physiology and Biophysics offers a wide range of undergraduate classes in addition to those restricted to students in the faculties of Medicine and Dentistry. Students who have previously taken biology, chemistry, physics will be best equipped to study physiology.
The classes listed below are aimed at providing the student with an understanding of the functioning of the human body. The Distance Education class 1000X/Y.06 is open to all students. PHYL 2030 or its component parts 2031.03 or 2032.03 is the recommended prerequisite for science students interested in taking higher level physiology courses. Students wishing to enrol in other specialized classes require permission from the Course Director or Department Head.
