Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience


In part 2 Physiology, Development & Neuroscience (PDN) you can choose modules from any of these three areas (you don’t have to do all three, but you can combine P, D and N if you wish!). This gives you a wide choice of specialisms within physiological and related disciplines. Part 2 PDN is ideal for those interested in post-graduate medicine, biomedical research, a PhD in physiological sciences and many other careers. It includes the opportunity to do an extended research project, many of which lead to publications in leading research journals.

If you are thinking about taking IB Physiology to support and strengthen your other courses, you will find it particularly useful for part II Zoology, Pharmacology, Neuroscience or Pathology, but it gives you a strong background for most other part II options.
