Medical Physiology (MS)

The Master of Science in Physiology (MSMP) program at Loyola University Chicago Health Sciences Campus is designed for college graduates who are interested in strengthening their understanding of medical physiology with the intent of enhancing their academic credentials to succeed in their medical school applications and the medical school academic years. The MSMP program is a non-thesis, full-time, nine month special master's program running from early September to late May. Our courses are designed specifically for MSMP students and are classroom-taught by medical school faculty professors who have extensive medical education and admissions experience at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

MSMP students will pursue intensive studies in M1-level graduate cell physiology, physiological biochemistry, organ system medical physiology, neurophysiology, basic human anatomy, introduction to pathophysiology and clinical bioethics. Our Professional Development course helps each student with all aspects of their applications to medical school. Each student in the MSMP program is assigned a faculty advisor to guide them throughout the program, as well as with their medical school applications. We also provide assistance for students interested in local medical and community volunteer programs.
