PhD Minor in Cardio

The objective of the Cardiovascular Sciences minor program is to provide students with a comprehensive background and understanding of integrative cardiac, vascular, renal and pulmonary (patho)biology. This objective will be accomplished by providing students with a wide variety of options to advance their education in the area with the following advanced didactic coursework.

A minimum of 12 credit hours outside the student’s major department; that would include:

Required Courses______________________________________Credits
G735 Cardiovascular, Renal & Respiratory Function in Health & Disease 2
G830 Advanced Cardiovascular Physiology 3
