Congratulations to the Physiology class of 2020 on this amazing achievement!

The Department of Physiology is one of five basic science departments in the College of Medicine – Tucson and the largest undergraduate program in the College. As medical education continues to change and evolve, so, too, has interest in a physiology major. Twenty years ago, we had 430 students in the program. Today, we have more than 1800 physiology majors. These staggering enrollment numbers make the physiology program at the University of Arizona the largest program of its kind in the country! We are also proud to say that, for many years, physiology has been the second most popular undergraduate major at the University of Arizona, with many incoming freshmen selecting it as their major of choice — including most of you. Physiology is also the third most popular degree awarded by the University of Arizona last year.

Below are the links to access the Live- stream commencement, post-graduation zoom celebration and the graduating senior survey. Friends and family can access the Live-stream on YouTube and everyone has the ability to chat during the ceremony. You can use the chat function to stay engaged, celebrate your peers, and ask any questions (Note, the chat will be moderated). At the end of the Live-stream, have your confetti poppers, bubbly drinks, and cake ready to go for the Zoom Celebration. Faculty and staff will be on the call to cheers to your success! The Zoom Celebration is just for graduating students, faculty, and Physiology advisors and staff, so only authenticated UA usernames will be allowed to register and join. Please register ASAP and before the call so you're not delayed in joining. 


  • Zoom Celebration (Friday after live stream ceremony): Zoom link will be emailed directly to PSIO students


  • Graduating Senior Survey - Graduates ONLY please complete to help the Physiology Dept. continue to improve and you could win a $25 gift card to Amazon! It will take about 5-10 minutes and is anonymous (the survey will link to a separate survey for the gift card raffle after you submit):
