Merry, Justin W.; Elenchin, Mary Kate; Surma, Renee N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
Multiple choice exams are ubiquitous, but advice on test-taking strategies varies and is not always well informed by research. This study evaluated the question of whether students benefit or are harmed when they change their initial answers on multiple choice questions in the context of physiology and biology courses. Previously marked…

Colthorpe, Kay; Ainscough, Louise – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
Laboratory classes are a cornerstone of physiology education, enabling students to develop essential knowledge and skills. Recent moves toward utilizing blended options to support face-to-face classes with online materials are beneficial, but using solely online classes may not produce similar learning gains. During 2020, the global pandemic meant…

Frisch, Emily H.; Greb, Alexandra C.; Youm, Julie H.; Wiechmann, Warren F.; Greenberg, Milton L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
We introduced the AliveCor KardiaMobile electrocardiogram (ECG), a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved, iPad-enabled medical device, into the preclerkship curriculum to demonstrate the clinical relevance of cardiac electrophysiology with active learning. An evaluation showed that medical students considered the KardiaMobile ECG active…

Seif, Ansam Aly; Eldamanhoury, Hayam M.; Darahim, Khaled; Boulos, Dina N.; Bahaa, Nevine; Ciraj, A. M.; Velladath, Saleena Ummer; Kamath, M. Ganesh – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
The electrocardiogram (ECG) is the primary diagnostic tool in cardiovascular diseases. Hence its interpretation is a core competency in medicine, where obvious deficiencies have been reported among learners. The aim of this study was to introduce the fundamentals of ECG knowledge and interpretation through early clinical exposure (ECE) based on a…

Davidyan, Arik – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
University-level physiology courses are considered challenging. Postsecondary instructors indicate the top three reasons that make physiology courses difficult for student are 1) the need for the learner to reason mechanistically, 2) the belief among students that memorization is equal to learning, and 3) the need to think about the physiological…

Ding, Chun; Wang, Qin; Zou, Jingling; Zhu, Kewei – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
The core problem of Chinese resident doctor training is that medical educators present content in an attractive teaching mode to make students more motivated to learn and improve their clinical thinking ability, humanistic care, and practical ability. The traditional classroom mode of teaching cannot meet the needs of modern medical education. The…

Powell, Carolyn L.; Brown, Angus M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
The ability to understand the relationship between the reversal potential and the membrane potential is a fundamental skill that must be mastered by students studying membrane excitability. To clarify this relationship, we have reframed a classic experiment carried out by Hodgkin and Katz, where we compare graphically the membrane potential at…

Kaur, Simran; Bir, Megha; Chandran, Dinu S.; Deepak, Kishore Kumar – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
In the wake of COVID-19, the postgraduate activities in physiology were shifted from live (face-to-face teaching) to virtual mode. This transition posed a challenge to postgraduate students and faculty moderators, especially for participant-centric group discussion, wherein face-to-face interaction contributes significantly to active learner…
