Human Physiology, B.S.

Human Physiology is the science of how the human body functions in health and disease. The curriculum offers rigorous study of human physiology across the molecular/cellular, systems, organism, and behavioral levels.

"The Human Physiology B.S. program provided me with an unparalleled educational experience. All the HHP faculty I interacted with took a genuine interest in my academic success and always challenged me to reach my fullest potential. With the wide variety of advanced elective coursework offered by HHP, there were also countless options for me to challenge myself, with the cadaveric dissection course being by far my favorite. 

Joshua YemI currently work as the Office Coordinator of the Iowa City Free Medical & Dental Clinic and will be starting medical school in the fall. Majoring in Human Physiology has more than prepared me for these experiences. The critical thinking, teamwork, and communication skills combined with the anatomy and physiology knowledge I gained from being an HHP student have been vital in my work at the Free Clinic and will undoubtedly be invaluable in my future medical endeavors. 

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to study in such an incredible academic environment, and I could not feel more equipped for a career in health care."
