This course enables students from diverse backgrounds to bring their understanding of physiology to the level required for further medical studies at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. The overall expectation is that the student will obtain an understanding of fundamental concepts in physiology, including cellular and body system integration, homeostasis and metabolism. The material is of a breadth and depth equivalent to that of an undergraduate introductory physiology course, and is communicated in a lecture-based format.
