Bordes, Stephen J.; Manyevitch, Roni; Huntley, John D.; Li, Yun; Murray, Ian V. J. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
Students find cardiovascular physiology challenging. Misunderstandings can be due to the nature of the subject, the way it is taught, and prior knowledge, which impede learning of new concepts. Some misunderstood concepts can be corrected with teaching (i.e., preconceptions), whereas others are resistant to instruction (i.e., misconceptions). A…

Kibble, Jonathan D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
As the Baby Boomer generation reaches old age, there has been a significant increase in the number of older adults needing healthcare over the past decade. The physiology of aging is therefore a highly relevant topic for the preclinical medical curriculum. I describe a new capstone unit on the physiology of aging, placed at the end a medical…

Wang, Lin-Lin; Liu, Lingyue; Zu, Aohan; Lv, Xiaoning; Mei, Zixuan; Wang, Zhouhan; Chen, Ying-Ying – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
A novel educational tool helps teach intestinal absorption in physiology--We have designed an interesting educational tool to help sophomores learn intestinal absorption in physiology course. In the study group (2019), 51 sophomores from biomedical engineering were encouraged to learn the intestinal absorption knowledge through reading materials…

Grachan, Jeremy J.; Quinn, Melissa M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
Anatomy and physiology courses are sometimes seen as difficult, which can lead to a lack of motivation in students to learn and engage in the course material. Students may also see the material as "dry," have issues forming personal connections, or struggle to connect the content to the real world. These issues may lead to students not…

Baptista, Vander – Advances in Physiology Education, 2015
From a Cartesian perspective of rational analysis, the electric potential difference across the cell membrane is one of the fundamental concepts for the study of physiology. Unfortunately, undergraduate students often struggle to understand the genesis of this energy gradient, which makes the teaching activity a hard task for the instructor. The…

Choate, Julia; Long, Harrison – HAPS Educator, 2019
There have been significant increases in the number of students studying physiology in the Bachelor of Science degree-program at our university. We thought that physiology prerequisites for graduate programs in medicine and allied-health areas were facilitating these increased numbers. Undergraduate physiology students were surveyed about their…

Kay, Ian – Journal of Biological Education, 2008
Underlying recent developments in health care and new treatments for disease are advances in basic medical sciences. This edition of "Webwatch" focuses on sites dealing with basic medical sciences, with particular attention given to physiology. There is a vast amount of information on the web related to physiology. The sites that are included here…

Vitali, Julian; Blackmore, Conner; Mortazavi, Siavash; Anderton, Ryan – International Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Anatomy and physiology courses are a foundation for numerous degrees, but experience some of the highest failure rates of all undergraduate health science programs (Higgins-Opitz & Tufts, 2014). While interventions have been developed in an attempt to remediate this concerning phenomenon, there is a paucity of evidence to determine the reason…

D., Savitha; A., Taniya – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Although hands-on experience in hematology practical work has been an integral part of physiology education, the students' perception on the importance of the same has remained largely unexplored. The objective of this study was to explore students' perception on the importance of "doing" hematology experiments. The first-year medical…

Shaffer, Justin F.; Schriner, Samuel E.; Loudon, Catherine; Dacanay, Samantha J.; Alam, Usman; Dang, Jennifer V.; Aguilar-Roca, Nancy; Kadandale, Pavan; Sato, Brian K. – HAPS Educator, 2018
Universities use prerequisites to regulate the path of students through a program or major. However, the impact of prerequisites on follow-up courses in anatomy and physiology is not well understood. If success in follow-up courses depends on completion of prerequisite courses, then students should earn higher grades on exam questions that assess…

Hill, Cheryl A.; Britson, Carol; Elbatarny, Hisham; Heimgartner, Candi; Waters, John R.; Wayne, Chad M. – HAPS Educator, 2017
As demand for Anatomy and Physiology education increases faster than construction projects and budgets, instructors are finding themselves in front of ever-growing classroom sizes. Teaching large classes presents a number of challenges, including planning the courses, navigating technical equipment, handling exams and student accommodations, or…

Carter, Jason R.; West, John B. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2013
Compare and contrast strategies remain common pedagogical practices within physiological education. With the support of an American Physiological Society Teaching Career Enhancement Award, we have developed a junior- or senior-level undergraduate curriculum for exercise physiology that compares and contrasts the physiological adaptations of…

Brown, Stanley P.; Smith, JohnEric W.; McAllister, Matthew; Joe, LeeAnn – Advances in Physiology Education, 2017
Using pop icons in the science classroom represents a creative way to engage often-distracted students in a relevant and, perhaps more importantly, fun way. When the pop icon is as universally known as Captain America, the pedagogical stage is set. However, when the movies can also be employed to link dramatic references to the science concepts at…

Harrison-Bernard, Lisa M.; Naljayan, Mihran V.; Mercante, Donald E.; Gunaldo, Tina Patel; Edwards, Scott – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The primary purpose of conducting two interprofessional education (IPE) experiences during a multidisciplinary physiology graduate-level course was to provide basic science, physical therapy, and physician assistant graduate students opportunities to work as a team in the diagnosis, treatment, and collaborative care when presented with a patient…
