About

Physiology has been a part of the curriculum at the University of Michigan Medical School from its beginning in 1850. Physiology as a research discipline at the University dates back to 1882, when Henry Sewall, Ph.D., was hired as the first full-time Professor of Physiology, which makes us one of the first physiology departments in the United States. Throughout this time, Michigan physiologists have played a role in the education of scientists, physicians, and other health professionals. Over 250 individuals have received the Ph.D. degree in physiology, and their discoveries and leadership have provided landmarks in the advancement of physiology as a discipline.
