Physiology & Biophysics: MA
from the Bulletin
The Department of Physiology & Biophysics at the Boston University School of Medicine offers programs leading to the MA or PhD degree. Each program stresses laboratory training and original research performed under the direction of a faculty member, as well as satisfactory performance in graduate coursework.
In the first and second years of both the MA and PhD programs, a core curriculum of biophysics and physiology is supplemented with Foundations in Biomedical Sciences courses. The course program emphasizes flexibility and individual choice. In the first year, students do research rotations in the laboratories of three or four faculty to gain firsthand knowledge of a variety of research areas.
