As one of the two primary basic science departments in the college, the department of Physiological Sciences is responsible for the education of veterinary medical students in a variety of disciplines, including anatomy, cell biology, clinical pathology, pharmacology, physiology, and toxicology. In addition, the department is responsible for running the clinical pathology service of the UF Veterinary Hospitals (UFVH).

In addition to the instruction of professional degree (DVM) students, the Department is responsible for the Physiological Sciences section of the college graduate program. The education of graduate students is closely tied to the critical mission of research, in which we focus on comparative aspects of biology and disease. The requirements of these missions have led us to develop a blend of basic science and clinically oriented faculty. This combination of disciplines and interests has proven to be a very successful means of fulfilling our extensive instructional mission while maintaining an excellent research program.
