HISTORY

 

The Physiology Majors Interest Group (P-MIG) was founded in 2014 by John Halliwill (University of Oregon), Erik Henriksen (University of Arizona), Dan McCann (Gonzaga University), and Erica Wehrwein (Michigan State University).

The first official event for P-MIG was at Experimental Biology in 2015 with an APS teaching section symposium entitled “What's Your Major? The Rise of the Undergraduate Physiology Degree.” In 2016-2017, P-MIG hosted networking sessions on Experimental Biology that were sponsored by the APS education office.  

 

With these sessions being well attended, the group hosted its first stand-alone conference dedicated to Physiology Undergraduate Programs in May 2017.
