Contact us with any questions about the program or admissions process.

The Master’s in Physiology (“regular” program) is a one-year, non-thesis, pre-health master’s degree program designed as an opportunity for pre-health college graduates to strengthen their competitiveness and readiness for medical school, dental school, allied health programs, or PhD programs in the biomedical sciences. Students are challenged with a rigorous curriculum and receive expert advising and support from our medical center faculty.

Our students come from of a diverse range of undergraduate institutions (large and small, private and public) from across the United States, and while most majored in science, we also welcome students from non-science majors who have completed all of the pre-requisite courses for medical/dental school.

The priority application deadline for Fall 2022 is May 15, 2022, with a final deadline on July 1, 2022. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis starting in November 2021 and early applications are strongly encouraged. Once the cohort fills, applicants will be notified that we have moved to waitlist only.
