Physiology is the science of function in living organisms. Integrative physiology integrates knowledge from anatomy, biochemistry, mathematics, physics, physiology and statistics to study how humans and other animals function at the level of genes, cells, tissues, organs and systems. Many students select the integrative physiology major as a premedical program since it provides the type of coursework required for advanced training in areas such as health, wellness and medicine.
