Department of Physiology

Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine

The Physiology Department offers courses that provide a comprehensive understanding of the functions of human organs and organ systems, as well as a sound basis for comprehending the adaptations and functional transitions that occur in disease. Mastery of physiologic concepts and problem-based learning are emphasized to provide a foundation that is conducive to the development of diagnostic skills. In addition to conventional didactic instruction, small group clinical case discussion sessions and workshops are used to promote critical thinking, problem solving, and application of physiologic concepts and principles to clinically relevant problems.
