Integrated Physiology is a multidisciplinary PhD training program that prepares students for careers in biomedical research. Students in Integrated Physiology have opportunities to explore how cells, organ systems and organisms regulate complex physiological functions through integration of molecular, cellular and physiological mechanisms.
I am thankful for the breadth of research I was exposed to while in the IPHY Program, as it gave me a birds-eye view of physiology in addition to a focused education in reproductive physiology. I gained experience in both translational and clinical research that prepared me for a research career in a clinical setting.
