The Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology (IBP) is offering Advanced Cardiac Physiology and Anatomy (PHSL 5510), a week-long intensive course. Next offering will be January 2021. It enrolls students from the University of Minnesota and from biomedical engineering companies in the metro and surrounding areas. The course will be offered for no credit to non-students, or for 2 or 3 credits to University students (3 credits requires added research project). The class will meet from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM for one week: lectures, small group discussions, demonstrations and participation in a human gross anatomy laboratory will be included. There will be a keynote lecture after class on Monday evening. For Industry (non-UMN students), the cost is $3500 which covers all course materials, cadaveric dissections, lockers, meals. UMN students cost is tuition for 2 credits plus a $525 course fee.
Exam: There will be one take-home essay exam that will be based on lectures and labs. This take-home (open-book) exam will be distributed the last day of class, and you will have approximately two months to complete and e-mail, fax or mail it back to the Department of Physiology. If you are a UMN degree-seeking student taking the class for credit, then the exam is mandatory.
