Who We Are

When CU-Boulder established the integrative physiology major in 2003, it was the first in the U.S. to bear that name. But the field--in which cellular and molecular observations are linked to the health and function of whole organisms--is growing fast. In just ten years it has become the university's second-largest major, with over 2,000 undergraduates as well as burgeoning masters and doctoral programs. The closest thing to a medical curriculum at CU-Boulder, Integrative Physiology provides an outstanding foundation for future doctors and nurses, and a firm basis for varied health professions and pursuits. It also provides a strong foundation for careers in basic physiological science.
