Special Programmatic Features of the Physiology Program

Each fall, the Department of Physiology participates in the Tennessee Physiological Society meeting which is held at one of the medical schools in Tennessee. The purpose of the organization is to "enhance and advance the field of physiology with all its molecular, cellular, organ and organismal basic and applied disciplines of research and education and unite the physiologists for this purpose within the State of Tennessee." Students in the physiology present at this meeting and network with other students and faculty in the state to stay abreast of current research in the area of physiology and build collaborations.
