U1


Where it all starts

Welcome to Physiology!

U1 is the introductory year, where you will learn the foundations of mammalian physiology and life sciences, and basic research techniques in physiology. Subjects include molecular and cell biology, systems physiology, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry. It is also the year of admission for multiple streams, as outlined in the Programs page.

Through out the year the U1 representatives will be hosting events to bring together the U1 PHGY community. Be on the look out for fun events at Gertz or free food outside Leacock and more. We also will be in charge of providing you NTC's second semester for Phgy 210. There will always be a facebook group where you can keep up to date with the latest news and events going on in U1 Physiology.
