Historical Note

Physiology was first taught in 1908 in the Department of Zoology and Physiology. The Physiology and Pharmacology Department was established in 1923 and focused on agricultural, veterinary and general science. Before the department was established, pharmacology was taught in the Veterinary Department. The College of Human Medicine was created in 1964 which also created more positions in the Physiology Department as courses were offered for more than just animals. Pharmacology became its own department in 1965. Physiology also became involved in the College of Osteopathic Medicine when it moved to campus in 1970. The Department of Physiology is currently administered by the Colleges of Natural Science, Human Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and the Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station.
